Campus Guidelines

UConn continues the summer session with the confidence that when we continue to all work together, we can succeed. Maintaining safety precautions and following the community expectations are necessary acts of support for all members of UConn Nation. We are mitigating risk through sound protocols and prevention efforts involving vaccination and testing, health screening and monitoring, community engagement, structural prevention measures, and cleaning and hygiene.
