A Safe Return to Campus
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, UC Riverside has been guided by three principles – personal health, community health, and incremental decision making. As the university prepares to increase on-campus operations this fall, these principles will continue to guide the campus. See message from Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox addressing a return to campus this fall.
UCR is committed to delivering in-person instruction, research opportunities, and student support services wherever possible. As a nationally-ranked residential public research university, an on-campus presence is essential to successfully advance our mission of instruction, research, and public service.
About 80% classes will be delivered in-person, with department chairs determining which courses will be in-person and which will be remote. Campus gathering and student support venues, including libraries, Student Recreation Center, Highlander Union Building, bookstore, dining spaces, and residence halls, will be open.
All members of the campus community – including students, staff, and faculty – must adhere to public health and safety guidelines upon their return to the UCR campus.
The circumstances around COVID-19 are rapidly changing, and campus guidelines will continue to evolve as guidance from local, state, and national health authorities are updated.
