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 increases on-campus operations, these principles will continue to guide the campus.
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.
Most classes will be delivered in-person for spring quarter. Campus gathering and student support venues, including libraries, Student Recreation Center, Highlander Union Building, bookstore, dining spaces, and residence halls, are 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. Please continue to visit the Campus Return site for updated information with specifics about operations on campus.
