 semester guidelines

 

The University of Utah’s coronavirus guidelines for semester were developed in partnership with the university’s public health professionals with the primary goal of maintaining the continuity of its in-person academic course work and operations such as on-campus housing and research activities throughout the entire semester. The guidelines place the health and safety of its students, faculty and staff as a top priority. These guidelines include limiting the size of in-person gatherings at the university (and in university-owned facilities) as a precaution to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus among its unique campus community. These guidelines extend to university-operated facilities that also rent space to outside organizations.

We recognize that current city and state guidelines provide some accommodation for larger gatherings than outlined in the university’s semester guidelines. However, as the university works to maintain the continuity of its academic and research mission, as well as contain and slow the spread of the coronavirus in its campus community, the university plans to maintain its existing semester guidelines.
