Multiple measures have been implemented to provide a safe environment for our students, faculty and staff this semester.

The University Restart Operations Committee (UROC) teams developed guidelines and procedures that comply with federal and state guidelines. 

We continue to follow Gov. Phil Murphy’s re-opening plan for New Jersey and higher education. The FAQ below provides more details.

Our goal is to keep our faculty, staff and students safe and healthy. We will continue to reinforce our Soar Safely, Ospreys messages and measures while providing the academic services students need to succeed.

Working together, we will have a safe, supportive and academically productive semester. And, yes, we will also have fun. Look forward to seeing you soon.President Harvey Kesselman

Need to Know

To reduce the risk of spread, students are not permitted to have any guests in the residential facilities. A guest is defined as anyone who does not live in the assigned room. Students who are identified as hosting guests will face disciplinary action.

Students who choose to host or attend large group gatherings place the entire University community in danger. Therefore, students who host or attend large gatherings on-campus or off-campus will face severe and immediate disciplinary action.


Faculty, staff and student surveys collected additional input, information and questions about keeping our community safe.

The COVID-19 situation remains fluid and we will adapt as needed. We will share more details as our plans evolve.

The University cannot guarantee the campus will be free of COVID-19. There is a risk that members of our community may contract COVID-19, but we are taking recommended steps in accordance with federal and state guidance to mitigate this risk on campus.  

All students, faculty and staff are expected to take personal actions to help protect themselves and others on campus. The success of our plan depends on everyone doing their part.
