SMU faculty have been advised to be flexible with assignments and exams. While the University is closed and no instruction is taking place, students are not expected to complete assignments. If a student is concerned about their workload, they should first consult with the faculty member. If a reasonable solution is not found, students are encouraged to reach out to the Department Chair.
On Campus Dining:
Dining is currently available only at Arnold Dining Commons from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Umphrey Lee is closed for repair but expected to reopen on Wednesday, February 24.

Off Campus Students
Students living off campus are welcome to use open campus buildings and on campus dining.
If you are without power, water, internet etc, please reach out to your utility service provider. The latest news is that the rolling power outages are lessening which should alleviate some of the challenges. However, many throughout the metroplex remain without key services. Several churches and rec centers have been opening their doors to assist. Please look for the nearest location for your safety.
