Spring quarter classes being held remotely

Spring quarter began on March 30, with remote instruction that will continue through the end of the quarter. As country-wide social distancing requirements continue to increase and evolve daily, we believe this is the best course of action for reducing uncertainty and anxiety and establishing a reliable, high-quality method of instruction and academic progress for UW students through the spring. Please see the relevant FAQs below, a page with information for students about spring quarter and messages to the UW community for more information.


Coordinated response

The University of Washington is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak in coordination with the UW Advisory Committee on Communicable Diseases and state and local health departments. Additionally, UW Environmental Health & Safety maintains a UW count of confirmed COVID-19 cases by campus.

This is an evolving situation, and updates are available from the Washington State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
