MD Anderson Cancer Center - UTHealth
Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

 Inclement weather conditions or natural disasters severe enough to cause closure are very rare, but when they do occur, GSBS policy is as follows:

Personal Refuge:  UTHealth and MD Anderson are not equipped to serve as a shelter during a hurricane or other emergency situation. Only ride-out team members (whose job responsibilities require their presence on a 24-hour basis) will be permitted access to facilities. Family members and pets will not be permitted to shelter at any UTHealth or MD Anderson facility during a hurricane or other emergency situation.
