In preparation for the spring semester, the University has updated the Safe Campus website and developed a detailed strategy focused on reducing the spread of COVID-19.

A few things to know:
  • The Spring 2021 Guide contains information about returning to campus, housing, and much more.
  • The MTest webpage provides guidance on when and where to get tested for COVID-19. Testing is encouraged for everyone and you do not need to have symptoms to be tested. The MTest site at RecWell will hold special testing clinics for new and returning students between Friday, Jan. 15-Monday Jan. 18, and again Friday, Jan. 22-Monday, Jan. 25. Students who use Boynton as their primary care clinic and who need a test can use the MTest site at RecWell at any time. Make an appointment. Mail-in testing continues to be available to anyone who wants one.
  • The new vaccine webpage will give updated information about vaccine availability as it becomes available. Vaccines are limited right now, but we are hopeful that vaccinations will be widely available in the spring. Throughout the weeks and months ahead, the COVID-19 Vaccine Team continues to identify specific target populations of students, staff, and faculty and ensure timely access to vaccines as they become available from state and local public health partners.
Resources for the CSE community during COVID-19

In addition, the College of Science and Engineering (CSE) remains committed to providing important information and updates during COVID-19 to our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. We continue to update the Resources for the CSE community during COVID-19 website, a comprehensive repository of resources for the CSE community, including the top five things you need to know, updated regularly.

The CSE resources specifically for undergraduate students webpage includes:
