Library and FAC to close at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 2

Due to potential ice accumulations on bridges and overpasses this evening, the Lewis Library and Founders Activity Center will close at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 2. We will continue to monitor conditions overnight. Here is a reminder of your emergency weather information sources if a late opening or closing is necessary for Monday morning:

  • Call our main phone number: 817-735-2000. This is the first and most authoritative source for weather closure information. If the Health Science Center closes for inclement weather, a special recorded message will inform you of the closing times. The message will be removed when the Health Science Center reopens.
  • Check the UNTHSC website: www.unthsc.edu. Closing information will be posted here soon after the decision is made, including date(s) and time(s) of closure. The notice will remain on the site until the campus reopens.
  • Tune into local TV and radio broadcasts. All four major local television channels – FOX 4, NBC 5, ABC 8 and CBS 11 – are notified when the Health Science Center closes for inclement weather. Information will be included with school and government office closures.
  • Check our Facebook or Twitter pages. Any closing updates will be posted there as well.
