The National Weather Service is projecting thunderstorms for the Washington metropolitan area this afternoon beginning at 2 pm. Expected conditions include 5-20 mph winds and may cause intermittent impact for the area until 10 pm. 

The Department of Public Safety and the Office of Residence Life will continue to monitor weather conditions and make public updates if forecasts change. Currently, Bison move-in will continue as regularly scheduled at all residential facilities for new and returning students and their families. Logistics for road closures and parking remain as published.

The safety of all Howard community members is the priority for move-in and all University events and programming. We ask all students, employees, and guests to account for driving conditions and rush hour traffic volume and to adjust travel and work schedules in the area accordingly. Should weather or conditions become hazardous, we will activate our severe weather plan for move-in. This protocol requires all move-in activities and support services to be suspended and for families to shelter indoors until any severe weather event has ended.

We are grateful to all students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters who have made the first week of move-in a safe and memorable experience, particularly for our new Bison families. Thank you for your hard work and patience and we prepare for the start of another dynamic academic year.
