The University of West Florida’s HLS Facility has been declared a Red Cross Emergency Shelter. It will be the first shelter opened in many emergency situations. In the event that circumstances warrant, the HLS Facility will close to the public and will be under the control of the Red Cross. Should this occur, HLS Facility patrons will be notified through @UWF, WUWF 88.1, Recreation’s website (, and signs throughout the facility.

The University is pleased to offer this service to our community. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your support and patronage.
