COVID-19 Updates

The University of Kansas has modified its operations to protect the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the community due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. We continue to partner with regional and national health officials and emergency management organizations to respond to evolving circumstances. For the most up-to-date info regarding coronavirus, please visit the university-wide coronavirus website. At left, you will find information regarding quarantine and isolation, plus additional educational materials.

On a historical note, we included the "updates for residents," which describes the move-out process during the spring 2020 semester as well as the plans for opening in August 2020.
