March 1-14 all education and student services go online

The remote period is designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus on campus.

From Sunday, March 1 through Sunday, March 14, 2021, the University of Utah will move all education and student services online.

The spring semester “remote period” is based on models developed in the fall 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. Read more about the rationale here.

What you need to know about access to campus from March 1-14

  • University employees who can work from home during this two-week period should do so. This excludes University of Utah Health employees, mandatory reporting employees (check with your immediate supervisor on your status),  as well as employees in Housing & Residential Education (HRE) and University Student Apartments (USA).
  • Research personnel are asked to minimize their time on campus as much as possible and use campus facilities only for work that can’t be done remotely.
  • Most buildings (except those run by HRE, USA, the Union Building and U of U Health clinical facilities) will be locked over the two-week period and only accessible to those with ID cards or building keys.
  • The Union building will remain open for students, staff and faculty only (UCard required) during this two-week period.
  • The Eccles Student Life Center (ESLC) and Marriott Library will remain open but with limited hours.
