NYU Alumni & Friends Connect

September 15, 2020

Early September marked the start of classes for much of NYU and also a significant milestone for the University: NYU reconvened in-person and remotely for fall classes at NYU in New York and at most of our global campuses and sites around the world. In adherence to local public health orders, NYU Los Angeles will continue all-remote instruction for the semester.

To help keep NYU community members safe and combat the spread of COVID-19, the University has put in place testing and quarantining policies for students, faculty, administrators, and staff who’ve returned to campus. Here’s a summary of the latest news on NYU Returns, COVID-19 developments, and the University’s multi-layered health and safety plan:

  • Read President Andrew Hamilton’s message on reconvening for the upcoming Academic Year.
  • Read NYU’s official statement on the recent event in Washington Square Park and response to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s press conference remarks.
  • Learn about the University’s public health strategy to reduce COVID-19 risks on campus.
  • Stay abreast of key data on the University’s COVID-19 testing program, which will be used to monitor the rate of infections and detect possible outbreaks.

For more information, we encourage you to visit the NYU Returns web hub, which is updated regularly with COVID-19-related developments and guidance for the NYU community.
