LSU Monitoring Tropical Storm Ian

September 26, 2022

LSU is closely monitoring Tropical Storm Ian. Currently, the storm is not expected to bring any significant impacts to southeast Louisiana, but we will continue to watch it and keep you updated. Your safety is paramount to us, and all decisions we make about the storm will be made with safety in mind. Any updates related to the storm will be posted to and @LSU social media channels, so please watch those carefully.

LSU has emergency plans, and will have teams in place if a storm approaches our area. We plan ahead in conjunction with city, parish, state and emergency officials. We have been through many hurricanes in the past and will provide you with information on how to stay safe.

For those who live on campus, if a storm threatens our area, LSU Residential Life will provide you with instructions, how to obtain meals, and ways you can protect your vehicle. Residence Halls do not close for hurricanes or tropical storms, even if the rest of the university closes. You will be allowed to remain in your on-campus residence and staff will remain on site with you.

If you haven’t already done so, we urge you to sign up for emergency text messages from LSU by visiting MyLSU and clicking on “Personal Preferences” and “Emergency Contacts.”

Please follow the tips posted on the Office of Emergency Preparedness website to be prepared and stay tuned to all official LSU communication channels for more information.
