TCU’s campus will be closed on Tuesday and all classes have been canceled, TCU officials announced in an alert Monday afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued a hard freeze warning for the DFW metroplex, effective 12 a.m. through 10 a.m. Tuesday, January 16th.

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for the next day, with tomorrow’s temperature expected to top out at 28 degrees.

The weather service warned that road conditions would become hazardous Tuesday morning due to refreezing precipitation, though no new precipitation is expected.

Students are still returning to campus as the winter break winds down, with some out-of-state students facing travel woes at the airport.

Sophomore finance & accounting major Emily Shabunov said that her return flight from Southern California has been delayed twice, and the airline has no estimate of when she may return to Texas.

“So far, my flight says it’s departing at 6:16 p.m. and landing at like, 11 p.m.,” Shabunov said.

During the university closure, all academic activities will be suspended: all classes have been canceled, and students will not be expected to submit homework, take tests or quizzes, or meet scheduled deadlines.

The recreation center and campus dining locations will operate on an altered schedule.

“All essential student services, including dining and residence hall move-in, will continue,” Sean Taylor, TCU’s director of emergency management, said in a university-wide email Monday afternoon.

The Office of Emergency Management will continue to monitor weather conditions. If necessary, updates will be sent via the TCU Alert system.
