Subject: Urgent: University Closure
Dear LUMS Community,
Earlier this evening we received an announcement from HEC which has determined that academic operations of all public and private institutions of higher education must remain closed until April 5, 2020.
However, faculty and essential staff - as designated by their HoDs - will continue their work.
Hostels must be vacated, except by international students. Students are advised to leave the hostels as soon as practically possible, but no later than March 18, as we need to fully comply with the nationwide government directive.
All core information systems will be remotely accessible if needed (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The university will continue to maintain its dedicated hotline for any medical related queries 042-35608500
Any HR questions can be addressed to HR at email@example.com
We will continue to monitor any new developments and provide periodic updates.
We also deeply regret the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again soon. Thanks very much for your understanding.
Arshad and Kamran
