University of Bridgeport closes clinics, dorms, in-person classes response to coronavirus
BRIDGEPORT — The University of Bridgeport announced late Wednesday that students will not be allowed to return to campus following the conclusion of spring break this week.
The message on the university’s website said all students on campus must leave by noon on Friday, March 13, and must take any materials they will need to complete coursework.
“In recognition of the difficulty that this poses for some students, those who wish to remain on campus shall email Dean of Students Craig Lennon according to the announcement and decisions will be considered on a case-by-case basis,” says the message, which is signed by UB President Laura Trombley.
UB has a high international student population.
Beginning on Saturday, March 14, 五福彩票注册送15元, all in-person classes at the Bridgeport and Waterbury campuses will be moved online.

Students enrolled in an internships, clinical experiences, or other experiential course can continue to do so.
Campus offices and buildings will remain open. All UB events are canceled and UB Clinics will be closed for patient visits until further notice.
