Transititon to remote learning

The University is carefully and regularly monitoring health conditions at the University, in Nevada, and across the country. After consultation with the Washoe County Health District and with their full support, we must continue to adapt to changing conditions. The University will move to remote learning effective Monday, Nov. 30, and students living in residence halls are asked not to return to campus after Fall Break (traditionally called Thanksgiving weekend). Read the full message from President Sandoval.

University Reduced Buildings Plan

While the study body is away after Nov. 30, we will be reducing building services. By reducing building services, we will be doing our part to slow the recent surge in COVID-19 cases throughout our community by lessening the density of individuals on our campus and by reducing the potential of spread through in-person gatherings in many of our buildings. This was a major goal for Nevada stated by Gov. Steve Sisolak last week during his “Stay at Home 2.0” announcement.
