UNIVERSITY RESPONSE TO COVID-19 (June 2, 2020 - 3:00 PM)

The University of Bridgeport’s main campus and the Waterbury Center will conduct all classes through virtual instruction methods for the remainder of the spring semester and summer sessions.

All UB policies are still in effect in the virtual classroom.

Specific concerns should be addressed to your faculty advisor, clinical coordinator, school director, or dean. Students who would like additional advising services should reach out to Academic Advising Services in the Heckman Center for The Bridgeport Plan.

A message from the Interim President and Interim Provost:

We hope this message finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.

Like colleges and universities across the U.S., UB worked quickly to transition from in-person to online instruction due to the unprecedented nature of the coronavirus pandemic. To ensure the continued health, safety, and protection of our students, faculty, and staff, both of UB’s summer sessions will be offered through online instruction.

We are taking this opportunity to let you know that UB is planning to resume on-campus operations and conduct in-person instruction, learning, and residential life for the fall 2020 semester. We want to assure you that we are considering multiple models that will account for our community’s health and allow us to safely open the campus consistent with best practices, as defined by the State of CT's Report of the Higher Education Subcommittee: Reopen Connecticut.

We continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and assure you that we will adhere to state and national directives.

Like you, we are ready to get back to campus. We hope to be together again soon and welcome our new and returning students. We are grateful to the many members of the UB community who worked to ensure the continuity of our educational mission and business operations these past two months.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon.
