During your online semester, staying engaged while you are away from campus becomes essential. We are committed to providing you with the same level of attention and personal connections that you would be getting in a traditional on-campus setting.
Learn about campus and student services availability
Campus and student services will remain available, either virtually or in-person with physical distancing measures in place. We are also committed to these eight steps to keeping you safe on campus.
Find out quickly and easily how the campus facility or service you need is either available remotely, in person with modified hours, has limited access or is closed.
Check the status of a UFV facility or service
While most of you will be studying at home, some of you may need to be on campus from time to time during the fall semester. This situation may happen if you are enrolled in a blended course, experiential class, lab session or need access to a safe and quiet study space or meeting room.
If you are coming on campus, we ask students to carefully read our guide.
