Oakton Community College’s Des Plaines campus remains closed for classes and all activities today due to Des Plaines River flooding.

Although the parking lots submerged under water from the river after heavy rains last week are gradually drying out, both Central and Golf Roads remain closed by government authorities, blocking access to the campus at 1600 E. Golf Road. 

The college’s Skokie campus is scheduled to be open. 

College officials are asking students, employees and visitors to visit Oakton’s website for updates.
