Top thing to know

Return to campus:
As the University of Minnesota welcomes students, faculty, and staff back to our five system campuses, safety is our top priority.

  • Our plans reflect our commitment throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to prioritize the health and safety of all University students, faculty, and staff. We coordinate continuously with our public health and medical professionals—at a state level and within our own University experts. Most importantly, we are working to implement processes to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing practices will occur throughout all of our facilities.
  • Stop the Spread of COVID-19 is our shared commitment to protect one another with daily individual health monitoring, proper handwashing, physical distancing, and wearing masks.
  • Additionally, the Twin Cities campus is currently in “Step Three” of the U of M Systemwide Maroon and Gold Sunrise Plan, which details the safeguards put in place for undergraduate students living on campus.

Corporate Relations & Career Centers: During this time, staff will be available by email, phone or virtual meetings.   Learn More→
