The Coronavirus - COVID-19

As you are likely aware, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) along with state and local public health agencies are monitoring the spread of COVID-19 – or the novel Coronavirus – which has been detected in Connecticut. At this time, both the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system and WCSU are monitoring the situation closely. Our Emergency Management team is meeting on a daily basis and is evaluating and assessing developments. We will continue to provide regular updates.

Latest University Information:

  • President Ojakian has just announced that we will be running a virtual campus for the rest of the semester.  This decision was made in response to the rapidly evolving pace of COVID-19.
  • For now, all faculty and staff who will be working remotely should retrieve anything they need from their offices by Friday, March 20.  After that time, we will begin the deep cleaning of campus and will not be able to allow access to buildings.
