Coronavirus FAQ

Will child care be available?

Child care at the Weber State Ogden campus will open Aug. 24. 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 yellow risk level, we are assigning students to regular occupancy. We will continue to assess this based on the county or university risk status through check-in. 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 will continue to be limited or suspended and schedules are available online.

What about athletics?

The Big Sky Conference has canceled all of its competitions and championships for the remainder of the 2020 spring sports season

Wait, I missed all the info about the summer semester. What’s happening?

All summer session courses are offered for the remainder of the semester online or in a virtual format. 

What do I do if I have tickets for an event at the Browning Center and it was canceled?

Ticket holders for non-WSU events at the Browning Center should contact event organizers about reimbursement/refunds.

Can I get a refund on parking?

For information on parking permit refunds, please visit our parking services website.

Will the Student Health Center be open?

The Weber State Student Health Center is closed. If you receive prescriptions through the Student Health Center pharmacy and need a refill, every effort will be made to arrange for the refill over the phone; however, an appointment may be required. Appointments for elective procedures (i.e. cryotherapy for warts) or minor medical concerns will not be available at this time.

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 my concurrent enrollment class still be held?

All decisions regarding the cancellation of concurrent enrollment courses will be made by the high schools that host them.

Will campus tours for prospective students be allowed?

Admissions counselors are now hosting virtual admission information sessions at weber.edu/campusvisit. Additionally, future Wildcats are encouraged to participate in our virtual campus tour at weber.edu/virtualtour.

Is the Weber Cares Food Pantry open? 

The Weber Cares Food Pantry is no longer taking appointments for food distribution.

In order to provide the safest possible distribution of food during the COVID-19 pandemic, pantry supplies have been shifted to the Joyce Hansen Hall Food Bank in Ogden, Open Doors in Layton and the Salvation Army in Ogden. An up-to-date list of available resources is available on the Weber Cares Pantry page. Another great resource is the Student Affairs page: Get Help With Essentials.

What about the Charter Academy and Melba S. Lehner Children's School?

The Charter Academy will reopen Aug. 17, and the Children’s School will reopen Aug. 25.
