Extreme Winter Weather Notice

Unprecedented sub-freezing winter weather is forecasted for the North Texas region – and that means the heaters in UNT buildings will be working very hard to provide heat to buildings.

Campus heating temperatures are set to 70 degrees; however, these extreme outdoor conditions may make it seem cooler or may create issues for the heating systems on campus.

If you are in a building on campus, please consider layering your clothing. Please remember that space heaters must be approved through our department and Risk Management Services to ensure they meet fire code standards.

Wintery precipitation is also expected, so please be aware that walkways may have ice or slippery conditions. Pedestrians may notice areas marked with tape, such as staircases, that are closed for use to prevent a fall. Our Grounds team has been spreading ice melt treatments across campus along walkways.

If you encounter heating issues or notice an area that has become slick with wintery precipitation, please call 940-565-2700 or submit a Work Order request via our "Request Service" button on our homepage: facilities.unt.edu.

Our partners at Emergency Management and Safety Services have also listed some tips that will help you stay safe during this extreme weather event.
