NLU Tampa closed Sept. 7 through Sept. 12 due to Hurricane Irma

The University has been closely monitoring the path and predictions for Hurricane Irma, and safety is our primary concern. As of now, the Florida Regional Center will be closed Thursday, September 7 through Tuesday, September 12. We will assess when we will reopen after the storm passes and post it on the NLU website and in social media.  As we are between terms, no classes are being held.

We will be in touch with all our cohort locations after the storm passes to ensure locations are safe, open, and accessible, and will promptly communicate that information to you as well as any changes to the schedule and otherwise that might be necessary as a result of the storm.  We will also keep our Florida webpage updated with such information.

National Louis University staff will be available to assist you throughout the storm if you have advising, scheduling, financial aid or other questions through the next few days.

Note that your county will have links to shelters and evacuation maps prominently posted on county websites, as will your local new affiliates (Bay News 9 on the West side of the state: or WESH on the East side: These sites may also be able to provide information on where supplies are still available in your area. The Florida’s Hurricane Preparedness Guide also includes a text number to find an available shelter nearest you, as well as other helpful contact information.
