The University of Utah will return to in-person classes, student activities and a full break in the fall.
The University Registrar has posted the fall calendar online here. Highlights include:
- Classes begin on Aug. 23
- A regular fall break is scheduled from Oct. 8-17
- Thanksgiving break is Nov. 25-28
- Classes end Dec. 9
- Winter Break is scheduled from Dec. 18, 2021-Jan. 9, 2022
The vast majority of classes will be held in person. Student services offices will return to regular staffing. Most internships and business travel will resume. And student clubs will be able to meet within health and safety guidelines. The Fall 2021 Semester class schedule will be published on March 29, and registration begins on April 12.
“We are confident that this fall will feel much like a return to normal for our students, faculty and staff,” said Dan Reed, senior vice president for Academic Affairs.
Fall semester plans are contingent on continued vaccinations and declining infections in the community. The university will continue to follow public health guidance from the state and county health departments, as well as U of U Health epidemiologists, regarding physical distancing and masking.
