West Conn students are on spring break next week, but then the University plans to run all academic programs online starting March 23rd, through April 3rd. University officials say this will allow them to continue to enhance health and safety protocols on campus. Students will return to campus on April 6th. All campus events are cancelled through April 30th. Residence Halls will close at 5pm this Friday. All residential students must return home for the next three weeks, not returning to campus housing until April 5th. Any student who can't meet that deadline should discuss their individual circumstances with the Housing and Residence Life Office. Teaching Faculty should teach from home, but are allowed to go to their office or use their lab.
