The University of Northern Colorado will begin to welcome back our students, faculty and staff onto our physical campuses in August. This return to campus will look different than previous years due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Preparation for the Fall semester is coordinated by the Re-Entry Task Force and campus partners. As we plan for the gradual return of our campus community, the goal is to make the transition as smooth and successful as possible.
