Measures to slow COVID-19

We are making the following changes in an effort to slow the disease’s spread and, hopefully, ensure smooth operations for our healthcare system. As part of that initiative, we will:

  • Cancel classes March 16 and 17 (does not apply to Utah Asia Campus)
  • Beginning March 18, move to online instruction for the rest of the semester (does not apply to Utah Asia Campus)
  • Restrict all university-sponsored events to fewer than 100 people
  • Restrict international and domestic travel, as well as in-state travel to large gatherings

“At the beginning of the year, a lot of my friends were talking about safety on campus, but I wasn’t sure what was correct information. I thought instead of talking about it we could do something and take action to get more students involved. That led me to register a student organization focused on safety, which we’ve called SAFE—Students for Action Focused Empowerment."

Classes Cancelled Today

All University of Utah classes (including online instruction) are cancelled today in light of disruptions arising from today’s earthquake.

Trained emergency teams are conducting rapid damage assessments of all university buildings. Updates on status of buildings will be posted at alert.utah.edu.

Employees who do not have a reason to be on campus (excluding public safety, facilities and University of Utah Health) are encouraged to not come to campus. Crews are working on a gas leak at the Madsen Health Center and evaluating structural damage at the Sugarhouse Health Center. Those buildings are currently closed.
