Be Safe Bobcats – Coronavirus Response

As we work and learn in the midst of a global pandemic, Ohio University is focused on delivering the best possible student experience while reducing risk to our students, faculty, staff and communities. With that in mind, we are implementing a phased return to our Athens campus. This fall, students engaged in academic experiences that require access to in-person instruction, specialized equipment, or specific facilities to ensure academic progress toward degree requirements will be invited to return while some Athens students will continue with remote instruction through the fall semester. Our Heritage College of Medicine and Regional Higher Ed campuses will continue with hybrid instruction through the fall.

No matter where you are in the world, we want to stay connected through the fall semester, and we are working hard to deliver virtual and remote experiences that allow you to connect to one another and develop Bobcat communities of support. If you are spending time on one of our campuses, here you’ll find everything you need to know about how you can help us keep our University healthy and safe this fall.
