University of Southern Mississippi operations on the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach will close immediately for the day on Friday, Sept. 5, as a result of a water line break affecting a majority of buildings on campus. The break has impacted restroom facilities and air conditioning to those buildings. Faculty and staff are encouraged to work from home as appropriate. At this time, regular activities on campus are scheduled to resume on Saturday morning.
Operations at additional Southern Miss locations will continue as regularly scheduled.
