JMU’s Plans to Return to In-Person Learning on Oct. 5

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the university’s main priority has been keeping our community safe. We moved to de-densify campus and transitioned to remote learning for four weeks because we care, first and foremost, about your well-being. In the time since we transitioned online, we have increased our ability to keep our students, employees and residents of Harrisonburg safe. We are currently finalizing plans to resume in-person instruction on Oct. 5.

What follows are additions to our original reopening plan. With these changes, plus additional changes we will be announcing between now and Sept. 25, we are confident that we will have a successful in-person experience going forward. More specific information, such as move-in dates and logistics, will be included in the announcement before Sept. 25.
