This website highlights key elements of the plan; please read the full Preparedness Plan for the complete details.

Parts of the Preparedness Plan

St. Thomas Health and Safety Protocols

From classrooms to the library, dining rooms and residence halls, the student center and common bathrooms, new protocols support social distancing and your safety.

Individual Health and Safety Protocols

We rely on all members of this community to stay healthy. This means continuing to follow our COVID-driven standards – because we can’t do it alone.

Classes and Instruction

With a mixture of in-person classes (in larger rooms with more space between seats) and online/remote instruction, we look forward to continue seeing you in Spring 2021.

Beyond the Classroom

Get answers on guidelines followed in the chapel and other religious spaces, study abroad, exercise facilities, and other campus activities.
