University Services

All University services are running as normal in all campus locations, and we expect them to continue to do so. The University continues to monitor weather conditions locally.

In the event of a Status Red weather warning coming into effect in Donegal, Sligo or Mayo, however, the University will close its satellite campuses in these counties. Any University campus located in a Status Red weather warning zone will be closed. These could include:
