University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cancels Classes Through Spring Break; Classes Will Now Be On-Line Only

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will cancel all classes the week of March 16-20. We ask all faculty and instructors to use that week and Spring Break (March 23-27) to take the necessary steps to teach their courses remotely. We understand that this is a significant change for both faculty and students, and we believe this extra time will help everyone prepare thoughtfully and thoroughly so that we can continue to provide an excellent learning experience for our students.

Starting Monday, March 30 – all courses will be delivered utilizing remote access and will not meet in-person for the remainder of the semester.

  • We encourage students residing on campus to return to their place of permanent residence because there are advantages for social distancing.
  • For those students living on campus who are not able to go home or who have work or other commitments in Lincoln, we will continue to support our students in residence halls and dining facilities where appropriate social distancing and enhanced preventative public health and hygiene measures will be actively encouraged.
  • Libraries will remain open; however, some services and hours may be limited. Go to Libraries’ COVID-19 page for more information.
  • We will make every effort to ensure that our important research and creative activity mission continues and that faculty, staff and students engaged in this mission will be able to continue their important work safely. More information will be available through our Office of Research and Economic Development.
  • Earlier this week, we shared resources for faculty and staff to prepare for remote learning. They can be found here. More information and resources will continue to be added.
  • Advising for students will continue but may be done remotely. More information on accessing student advising and other student services will be forthcoming.

Please know that we will work tirelessly to ensure that this switch to remote learning does not disadvantage any student. Specific information about help with internet access, computer resources and other questions will be provided in the next few days.

For those who are seeking additional support, resources are available. Students can find assistance through Big Red ResilienceCounseling and Psychological Serviceswell-being coaches and academic success coaches.
