The Woodbridge Campus of Northern Virginia Community College will remain closed through Sunday, Jan. 28, due to a burst pipe within the Seefeldt Building, the largest classroom building on the campus. The flooding affected both power to the building and internet connectivity to the campus, and the building will require extensive repairs.
Students should arrive early for classes on Monday, Jan. 29 and expect to be redirected to new class meeting locations. Some classes may be moved off campus, and shuttle services will be available for those who need them. Students may email their instructors for specific details.
A pipe ruptured on the third floor of the Seefeldt Building on Wednesday, Jan. 24, at approximately 9:30 a.m., and the building suffered extensive damage to that floor as well as the floors below. Students should continue to check their college email for updates as well as the NOVA Website, www.nvcc.edu.
NOVA has a continuity of operations plan, or COOP, in place for such occasions, and that plan is being executed in an effort to minimize disruption to the NOVA community to the extent possible. All updates will be posted to the NOVA Website, www.nvcc.edu, or issued via the NOVA Alert text messaging system.
