Faculty, staff on UI arts campus asked to remove essential office items by 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 10

Normal operations in the below listed buildings on the University of Iowa arts campus will be suspended as of 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 10, and faculty and staff are asked to have their essential items removed by that time because access to these buildings may be curtailed at any time and with short notice because of rising water.

• Hancher Auditorium
• Voxman Hall
• E.C. Mabie Theatre
• Art Building
• Art Building West
• Museum of Art

Departmental offices in these buildings will be moved to temporary locations on campus, according to University officials.

All staff and faculty should remove essential personal possessions that can be carried by hand by the end of the workday on Tuesday, June 10, 2008.

Unoccupied offices should be surveyed by departmental officers to secure in a safe place any equipment or materials that could be damaged by moisture.

Programs that are not moveable to temporary locations will be addressed on an individual basis by academic officials.

Staff and faculty are encouraged to maintain contact with their department head during this time for any additional information.
