Most in-person/virtual classes, clinical rotations to resume July 10

As the Greater Houston area is recovering after Tropical Storm Beryl, UTHealth Houston continues to adjust its work and learning schedules to meet the needs of students, trainees, faculty, and staff.

Beginning Wednesday, July 10, most in-person and virtual classes, as well as clinical rotations, will resume for students. Each school will communicate additional details and will work directly with students who experienced storm damage and are not yet able to return to coursework and training.

Nonclinical employees may return to the Houston campus or continue to work remotely as approved by their supervisor. Timekeeping instructions are forthcoming.

While widespread power outages continue to present a challenge for a number of our clinic locations, most expect to be reopened by tomorrow.

  • Employees at UT Physicians should monitor their emails, phones,, and the UT Physicians intranet for clinic updates.
  • UT Dentists personnel and UTHealth Houston School of Dentistry students, residents, faculty, and staff should monitor their email, phones, and school website for updates on clinical operations.
  • Faculty and staff members working with our hospital partners, including Memorial Hermann Health System and Harris Health System, should check with their supervisors.
  • UTHealth Houston Behavioral Sciences Campus’ emergency status lifted at noon today.
  • For updates on UT Health Services and Employee Health, please visit their website.
  • Thanks to phenomenal teams working around the clock to remove storm debris, repair damage, and keep our systems and facilities up and running, UTHealth Houston is safe and open for all our students, trainees, faculty, and staff.

The Operations Center Building (OCB) is running on emergency power. With the exception of University Housing and the Recreation Center, we have electricity, air conditioning, and internet access in all our academic, research, and administrative facilities. Most routes into the Texas Medical Center are clear. The UTHealth Houston shuttles are in service, and parking garages and lots are open. The French Corner will be up and running serving breakfast and lunch tomorrow at its McGovern Medical School and School of Dentistry locations. Please continue to stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you all back to campus.
