Coronavirus FAQ

What will the 2021 spring semester look like?

Please visit the COVID-19 homepage and student page for detailed information. For answers to questions about campus reopening, testing procedures, enrollment changes and more, please visit the Registrar's website. 

What are you doing to keep public areas clean?

To ensure safety for those still on campus, our cleaning crews are using stringent cleaning protocols. A few of the measures being taken to help prevent the spread of viral infection include:

  • Virex — a disinfectant commonly used in hospitals — is being used to clean surfaces including bathrooms, doors, tables, desks, work stations and door handles.
  • Color-coded rags are used to make sure no cross contamination takes place, specifically in bathrooms and break rooms.
  • Chlorine tab spray guns are being used everyday in open, common spaces due to the high potency.
  • Kaivac machines are being used around campus to deep clean bathrooms, showers and locker rooms

Please note that in private office spaces it is the occupant's responsibility to clean surfaces in the workspace. 

Will child care be available?

Yes, but child care will only be offered for in-person class time, not for extended hours (advising, testing, etc.).

What about campus housing? 

While still in the Low Risk Phase, we are assigning students to regular occupancy. In the case of University Village, this means that there will be four students per apartment. For all other questions about on campus housing this fall, please visit our Housing and Residence Life website.

Can I still get to campus using UTA transit?

UTA has implemented a ridership plan which includes social distancing measures and extra cleaning protocol. Face coverings are also required on all UTA services. Some routes continue to be limited or suspended and schedules are available online.

What about athletics?

The Big Sky Conference is postponing all competition for fall sports to spring 2021.

The Big Sky's women's and men's basketball teams will compete in a 16-game conference schedule during the 2020-21 season. All 11 teams from each gender again will advance to the Big Sky Conference Basketball Championships, to be held for the third consecutive year at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho. The single neutral-site tournament will take place March 8–13, 2021.
