Emory University will reopen at 5 p.m. this evening (March 7). DeKalb County has been working to address the water main break and water pressure on campus is returning to normal. This reopening applies only to Emory University’s Druid Hills campus. Emory Healthcare employees should refer to the EHC intranet and to e-mails from Emory Healthcare for information on operations and procedures.  

DeKalb County has continued the county-wide boil water advisory for residents and updates will continue to be available from the Dekalb County Water Main Break Update webpage.


Emory’s Druid Hills campus closed at 10 a.m. today, March 7, due to a major water main break in DeKalb County. Loss of water pressure requires us to modify campus services for the short term. As noted below, a DeKalb County boil water advisory is in effect until further notice.

Meanwhile, please be aware of the following (updated March 7 at 10:30 a.m.):

On-Campus Resident Housing

Please continue to use restrooms on the lower floors of your residential spaces, where water pressure will remain adequate longer than on upper levels. Note that the DeKalb County boil advisory will remain in effect for a period of time even after water pressure is restored. We will communicate when the advisory is lifted.
