High Point University apparently never shuts down. 

HPU says it has up to 50,000 pounds of rock salt and 45,000 pounds of ice melt for university sidewalks and streets.

For HPU dining locations, shelves are stocked in advance so operations will remain on schedule throughout a storm.

“Orders are increased to our vendors to ensure we have enough food on hand in case delivery issues arise,” says Laura Thompson, resident district manager for Aramark at HPU. “We are holding enough food to fill all of our dining locations through Monday.”

To ensure all food facilities remain open, managers of HPU dining operations may stay in local hotels near campus if commutes become
dangerous. They also offer transportation to their employees who may not be able to drive due to weather.

HPU security and student life staff will also be on duty around the clock. If shuttle systems are delayed due to road safety concerns, students can call security at 336-841-9112 with special transportation needs.
