At this time, the university remains in a normal operational status, however operations have been modified on both campuses tomorrow due to inclement weather.  

Classes will continue this afternoon and evening with flexibility for instructors to determine whether they hold classes in person or online. We are aware that several area Independent School Districts have announced modifications to their operational status for the next few days. We ask that faculty maintain flexibility with students who have challenges attending class in the modality adopted.  We also ask that supervisors are flexible and work with employees who may be affected by weather closures or who may live in areas that are more impacted by the weather. 

Based on the latest weather forecast from the National Weather Service, Texas State University SAN MARCOS CAMPUS will delay opening until 10 a.m. on Tuesday, January 31.  

The TXST ROUND ROCK CAMPUS will be closed Tuesday, January 31. 

Texas State University Emergency Management is monitoring the Winter Storm Warning for our area. The safety of our campus community is our top priority. We are working closely with area government agencies and educational institutions to monitor the current weather conditions, the forecast, and make decisions about potential delays and closures. In the event of a modified operational status, delayed opening, or closure other than those described here, we will announce the information via text, email, social media and online. Please ensure that your university contact information is current and that you have signed up for TXST Alerts. The university will share a message tomorrow afternoon on plans for Wednesday, February 1. 

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions 

Please exercise caution on elevated surfaces and overpasses. Walk with care and use sidewalks that are dry or have been treated with sand.  

Commuters should talk to their supervisors, professors/teaching instructors if they are unable to drive to campus. Your ability to travel to and from campus should be assessed prior to embarking on your commute. Please review your route against road closure data.   

Avoid spending extended periods of time outdoors over the next several days. Give yourself extra time if you must travel. A light glaze of ice is expected on bridges, overpasses, and elevated surfaces which could result in hazardous driving conditions. If you have to drive: 

  • Slow down and use extra caution.  

  • Don’t use cruise control and keep your distance from other vehicles. 

  • Allow triple the normal stopping distance when the road has snow and even more on ice. 

Tips & Resources  

Out of an abundance of caution, we have prepared the following links and information to assist you over the coming 48 hours in responding to the winter weather event. As with any significant weather event, it’s helpful to keep a flashlight, water, and non-perishable food on hand.
