All classes scheduled at 12:00 p.m. (noon) or later Thursday will be held as scheduled.
Additional information on the virtual format for each class will be provided directly by the individual instructor.
Faculty have been asked to prepare for online or remote sessions in the event of in-person meeting cancellations. These options will be determined by the faculty member and all questions should be directed to the Faculty teaching each course section. Faculty also have been asked to be very understanding and accommodating of the individual situations of their students who may have difficulty managing these alternative online or remote class meetings on short notice.
COVID-19 arrival testing being held at the Beckerman Recreation Center on Thursday will begin at 1:00 p.m.
Campus operations for residential students, unless otherwise noted, will operate as scheduled, though hours may be modified or changed based on conditions. Separate messages will be sent from the Peterson Library, the Beckerman Recreation Center, and Dining Services if any changes to their normal hours of operation are necessary.
Please note that only essential employees, as previously determined by their respective department leaders, should report to campus unless determined otherwise by their supervisor. All other employees should continue to fulfill the requirements of their role remotely.

As a student at the University of New Haven, you will have the opportunity to work closely with your professors in conducting innovative research. And, you can pursue prestigious – and nationally recognized – fellowships that make it possible to participate in transformational learning experiences.
Students have secured Boren and Fulbright Scholarships as well as research awards from the National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and other well-known organizations.
External financial awards – funded by government grants or private foundations – are competitive and reserved for outstanding students only. The University has had much success in placing students in these opportunities for study abroad, graduate school, independent research, public service, internships, and teaching experiences in the U.S. and abroad.
Such awards may be used for study abroad, graduate school, independent research, public service, internships, or teaching experiences in the U.S. or abroad.
These awards may be funded by government grants or private foundations and are generally quite competitive, although the profile of an ideal candidate varies, depending on the award. Some are more narrow and specialized within a disciplinary area, while others are much more holistic, seeking well-rounded individuals who can demonstrate talents and experiences well beyond college transcripts and letters of reference.
In addition to the benefits of a significant financial award, these grants and fellowships confer a number of tangible and intangible benefits, some of which are lifelong. The prestige associated with a major national or international fellowship can facilitate admission to top-tier graduate programs, jobs in government, opportunities for work abroad, and access to networks of senior experts.
