From Sunday, Sept. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 11, 2020, the University of Utah will move all education and student services online. And, on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 7, the eyes of the country will turn to Kingsbury Hall as the university hosts the country’s only vice presidential debate for the 2020 election.
The idea of a “circuit breaker” was based on models developed by University of Utah Health experts with the goal of creating a pause in the middle of the semester to help reduce the number of COVID-19 infections. The university was already scheduled to shift to online coursework around the vice presidential debate and decided to extend online-only classes for an extra week to help reduce possible COVID-19 infections on campus.

What you need to know about access to campus during the circuit breaker set for Sunday, Sept. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 11:
