FAQs for Community
We recognize that the University’s decisions affect our neighbors in Charlottesville and the surrounding area, a fact that is especially true as it relates to matters of public health. We are committed to providing members of our broader community with the information they need as we continue to plan for the Fall semester. Please use this site and its contents as a resource – we plan to keep it up to date as new information is available. In addition to the general information available on this site, we will develop FAQs addressing issues of particular relevance to residents of Charlottesville and the surrounding area.
We have made and will make every single decision about our plans in close consultation with physicians and public health professionals. Every student, faculty, and staff member who will be on Grounds this Fall will have to meet certain health and safety requirements designed to keep members of the UVA and broader community safe. It is important to note that our plans could change based on the spread of the virus, the advice of public health experts, or an order by the Virginia Department of Health. We sincerely hope that will not be the case, but our top priority will always be keeping our entire community safe—and we will let you know if circumstances require us to adjust.
