For Students

January Remote Learning & Work, In-Person Spring Semester Plans

Like the rest of the country, we continue to see a very high rate of COVID-19 cases within our campus community. As previously announced, most Harvard activities will be conducted remotely for the first three weeks of January.

Public health models anticipate this surge to peak in the coming weeks, presenting challenges that require us to assess and update our protocols and policies as we move forward with our plans for an on-campus spring semester. Harvard’s Schools and Units will continue to provide detailed information to their students, faculty, staff, and researchers regarding guidance for returning to campus and resumption of on-campus activities.

Keeping Our Classrooms Safe

With most undergraduate and graduate programs at Harvard resuming more in-person activities this academic year, Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) has implemented adaptable, multilayer protocols to help keep COVID rates low. These protocols will enable a safer return to campus for the entire community and reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19.

Watch the HUHS video on how we’re keeping our classrooms safe and what you can do to reduce your risk.
