UVI Announces Recovery Time-frame Post Hurricane Maria

The University of the Virgin Islands, now in recovery mode after two category five hurricanes, has adjusted its time-frames for resuming classes on its campuses.

“Hurricane Maria interrupted ongoing classes and operations on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix, and slowed the recovery on the St. Thomas Campus,” said UVI President David Hall. “However, the University is still committed to saving this semester and holding all students harmless from these dual tragedies.”

Though some classroom buildings have been damaged, all of the facilities are expected to be cleaned, restored and ready for operations in two weeks – approximately Oct. 9.  Some classes may resume even sooner, depending on the restoration of permanent power and internet communications.
