e2Campus - Emergency Alerts

Statement for Rain

As a residential campus community in New Orleans, LA, Dillard University operates 24 hours/7 days a week.  Business operations continue according to schedule except in extreme or unusual circumstances.  In these instances, the campus will be alerted to schedule adjustments via the e2Campus alert system and email.  


In general, inclement weather will not cause an adjustment to the schedule.   The University expects all students and employees to make every reasonable effort to come to class and work on occasions when the University is open during inclement weather. This general expectation is subject to each individual’s exercise of his or her personal judgment and common sense regarding his or her personal safety under the circumstances and weather conditions.  Unless alerted by e2Campus or email from Campus Police or the Office of Communications & Marketing, any absences due to inclement weather will be unexcused for students and employees.  Employees may elect to be charged with annual leave or use “leave without pay.” Employees are responsible for notifying their supervisor in accordance with departmental policy and guidelines if they do not plan to come to work due to inclement weather.


University Update:

Dillard University will resume normal operations on Wednesday, August 30 and classes will be held. Please check & e2campus alert for any additional updates.
