Protect your data

Be proactive about storing and saving your data in one of the University’s cloud-based solutions: 

Shut down and unplug your computer

Your computer should be shut down properly and unplugged from the wall outlet. Do the same for the monitor, laptops, and/or mobile devices, and all equipment such as printers, scanners, and speakers. Review additional tips and details from UMIT to safeguard your office and devices. 

Update your contact information

Ensure your contact information in Workday is up-to-date and accurate.

Parking on campus

Parking garages are currently being enforced as normal. Note, only vehicles with a valid UM permit that correspond to the garage are allowed to park. Read details here.

Review the University policy

Once an emergency has been declared, employees should review the University Declared Emergency, Employee Responsibilities, and Compensation Policy to understand their individual responsibilities and compensation. Review the Workday Disaster Pay tip sheet, and Kronos Disaster Pay tip sheet for more information.
