Coronavirus Information


On March 20, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker issued a stay-at-home order for the state of Illinois beginning March 21, 5 p.m. until the end of the day Tuesday, April 7. Due to this order, the move-out of the residence halls, St. James Apartments, and SAC has been suspended.

Students should not return to campus to retrieve their belongings, regardless of where they live. We will make alternate arrangements once the order has lifted. We are also moving to an alternate workplace scenario for all non-essential employees, including those who have previously had authorization from their supervisors to work on campus.

In addition, the formal spring Commencement program scheduled for Saturday, May 16, has been canceled. This difficult decision was not made lightly, and the university is looking at plans to celebrate our graduates’ accomplishments in a meaningful way.

Ongoing updates and details are available in the communications section.
