UCC will be closed Thursday, March 1 and Friday, March 2 to ensure the safety of students and staff following a STATUS RED weather warning issued by Met Éireann.

The University will close at 6pm this evening (Wednesday, February 28) and there will be no access to any of the UCC campuses while the University is closed over the next two days.

It is anticipated that the University will resume normal business on Saturday 3rd March and any changes to this will be posted on the UCC website and on UCC social media channels.

We hope that all staff and students stay safe during the bad weather and heed the advice of Met Éireann and local authorities.
