Student Life

To begin the spring semester, Emory’s campus will remain open and courses will begin on time. However, in an effort to support academic continuity and reduce density across campus, undergraduate, graduate, and professional courses will start the spring semester in a remote format—excluding clinical, research, SOM courses, and other select activities. In-person learning will resume on January 31, as health and safety conditions permit.

Campus Housing 

Spring 2022 

Residence halls will remain open to begin the spring semester. Students are not required to change their move-in plans and have the ability to return to campus housing throughout the remote period. 

Students who return to campus before in-person classes resume should prepare for a greatly reduced on-campus experience with limited activities, few co-curricular events, modified grab-and-go dining, and new changes to isolation and quarantine protocols.

Students who plan to return during the remote period must input their arrival date in the MyHousing portal. Further campus housing information will be communicated directly to residential students. 

If you test positive for COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms, or have a household contact testing positive for COVID-19, do not return to campus until you can confirm a negative test.

Student Programs

Effective December 28, 2021, co-curricular student activities will be moved to a remote format. Outdoor activities can continue in accordance with the new orange operating condition status. All other indoor activities will be postponed or can be rescheduled outdoors through January 31, as health conditions permit.

Any outdoor gatherings still will need to adhere to current Emory health and safety protocols, as directed by university guidelines, including the Student Involvement, Leadership, and Transitions student organization program planning guidelines.
