Welcome Back, Huskies: Reopening UConn for Fall 2020

The University of Connecticut looks forward to welcoming our new and returning students, faculty, and staff as we open 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.

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.


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 will be available when campuses reopen.

Health & Safety

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