Public universities in the state announced this week that they would not reopen campuses this semester. All West Conn faculty and staff who will be working remotely should retrieve anything they need from their offices by Friday, March 20. After that time, West Conn will begin a deep cleaning of campus and they will not be able to allow access to buildings. For all residential students, Housing officials have started working on a plan for retrieving belongings from the Residence Halls. They are organizing a schedule to prevent crowds. West Conn Housing and Residence Life Office does not yet have information from the University regarding refunds of housing and meal plan charges, but will make the information available as soon as it is available. Students in the School of Visual and Performing Arts, and student athletes who left items in lockers will also get a schedule about pick up. Virtual classes at West Conn begin on Monday via the online tool Blackboard.
