Campus Guidelines

This information is current as of March 13, 2023.

UConn continues in-person instruction with the confidence that when we 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.

General Guidance

  • Monitor your health daily. Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Do not go out on campus if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Wash hands often.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
