Welcome Back, Huskies: Reopening UConn for Fall 2020

The University of Connecticut has welcomed new and returning students, faculty, and staff back to our campuses this fall. We are dedicated to working together with public health experts and our state to maintain a quality UConn educational experience while keeping our community healthy.

This website includes information on the robust plans and protocols in place as we welcome our community back to campus. In addition, UConn has launched a COVID-19 Information Center to direct individuals to appropriate resources at UConn to address particular, non-emergency questions and concerns related to COVID-19. The Information Center is available to students, faculty, and staff at the Storrs and regional campuses 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 860-486-COVI or by emailing covidquestions@uconn.edu.

Gateways to Reopening

As of August 2020, UConn and the State of Connecticut have met a set of key conditions for reentry, as established by the Governor's Reopen Connecticut Advisory Group. The quantitative measures in place to minimize risk consider new hospitalization rates, availability of testing and supplies, contact tracing capacity, and more.

Academics

At the University of Connecticut, we unite those who question, challenge, and push what's possible — whether that learning takes place in person, online, or a combination of both. Flexible modes of course delivery planned for fall 2020 enable UConn to continue delivering the same outstanding education to all students while keeping safety at the forefront.

Living on Campus

We are committed to providing as holistic a living experience as possible for our students while implementing precautions to protect their health. Safety measures include reduced density and a new housing assignment process, earlier move-in and move-out dates, and testing and quarantine protocols. As always, services for students, faculty, and staff are available.

Health & Safety

It's up to all of us to keep ourselves and each other safe. UConn has reopened with the confidence that when we all work together, we can succeed. We are mitigating risk through sound protocols and prevention efforts involving population reduction, health screening and monitoring, community engagement, structural prevention measures, and enhanced cleaning and hygiene.
