As much as we had hoped to return to a full campus experience in Chicago, London, and Hong Kong this fall for all our current and incoming students, we must prioritize the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and the communities we all live in amid the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know that some of you hope to convene on campus for class sessions, even with remote faculty. After consulting with the world-renowned epidemiology team at University of Chicago Medicine, we have determined that, at least for the start of Autumn Quarter, should local guidelines allow, in-class student participation on all three of our campuses will be limited to “local” residents.

  • For our Hyde Park and Gleacher campuses, only students who live within the State of Illinois will be permitted.
  • For the Yuen Campus, when it reopens at an appropriate stage to include students, only Hong Kong residents will be permitted.
  • For our London campus at St. Paul’s, only residents of the greater London region will be permitted.

These protocols are subject to change.
