UW Prepares for Spring Semester Start

January 13, 2021: With the Jan. 21 start of the spring semester approaching, students returning to campus are reminded that a limited contact period begins Jan. 14 and extends through Jan. 31.

During the limited contact period, students are allowed to attend in-person classes, participate in work and worship engagements, and be outside; but they are expected to limit their in-person contacts to people living on the same floor of a residence hall or the same apartment/residence.

The semester will begin with two days of online-only instruction Thursday and Friday, Jan. 21-22, and face-to-face classes starting Monday, Jan. 25.

For students living on campus, the residence halls will open Tuesday, Jan. 19, with students arriving on assigned arrival dates between then and Sunday, Jan. 24. Those students’ first stop will be Crane Hall, where required COVID-19 testing will take place, before they check in at the front desks of their assigned halls. Students tested before noon between Tuesday and Thursday will receive results by 5 p.m. each day, and they’re expected to shelter in place until a negative test result is received.

Students living off campus should take a COVID-19 test before returning to in-person classes or activities on campus. They’ll need to make appointments for such testing, which will be available starting Tuesday, Jan. 19. Appointments can be made starting Friday, Jan. 15.
