Shelter Locations

The University of Virginia prides itself on providing an exciting and entertaining atmosphere for fans. Our top priority if the safety and well-being of those in attendance, from fans to student-athletes and employees.

A key part of this commitment involves closely and constantly monitoring the weather for potentially
dangerous conditions. UVA employs a series of checks on weather conditions, including the use of
sophisticated radar and tracking services to gauge the severity and track of storms.

Working with game officials, the University may decide to suspend a game, close and evacuate the field
because of weather conditions. In these cases, fans initially are alerted via text alert, public announcements
within the facility, local media, social media and other platforms that evacuation may be possible.

If evacuation is mandated, fans should exit the stadium and seek shelter until receiving notice that the game
will be resumed and the stadium is reopened. Any patrons without a personal vehicle at the event should
notify event staff who will make the appropriate accommodations.

For updates on weather delays, please check our social media page.
