Return to Campus

Bradley remains committed to returning to on-campus operations for the fall 2020 semester while keeping health and safety as our top priority. Several university committees have been diligently preparing plans and contingencies to ensure that the 20-21 academic year is safe and successful.

Until a vaccine or preventative treatment for COVID-19 is available, practices like physical distancing, hand hygiene, proper cough/sneeze etiquette, frequent disinfection of high traffic areas, and face coverings in public are some of our best strategies to control the spread of this virus. They are also the campus’ new normal.

We must make a personal commitment to observe these campus safety precautions. We each have a responsibility to look out for the health of our Bradley Family.

We will continuously reevaluate our policies and adjust them as necessary, and we promise to update you as soon as possible. Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate these uncharted waters.


Bradley University will conduct ongoing COVID-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) surveillance testing of all students, faculty and staff who will physically be on campus in the fall.
