U.Md. Delays In-Person Classes For Two Weeks

The University of Maryland, College Park will delay in-person classes for two weeks for undergraduates because of the coronavirus pandemic, the school announced Tuesday.

Students will be able to move into dormitories as scheduled, however, university officials said.

The fall semester will begin on Aug. 31 as originally planned and the undergraduate classes will be conducted online until Sept. 14, university President Darryll Pines said in an announcement on the school’s website.

Pines said graduate-level instruction and research activities will go on as planned.

“I know this two-week delay is disappointing, but it will permit us to phase in the resumption of on-campus activities and allow us to implement campus-wide virus testing,” he said. “We will not hesitate to pivot to more stringent measures if dictated by these initial assessments, and health conditions within our state, county or campus.”

In regard to student housing, the university website said the deadline to confirm on-campus housing in residence halls has been extended to noon Wednesday.

Students living on and off-campus have been asked by university officials to stay in their residences as a precaution as much as possible through Sept. 14.
