Undergraduate Students

Based on the current COVID-19 conditions in Atlanta, we have made very difficult decisions for our fall semester.

Emory University has reduced the number of students allowed to live in residence halls and take in-person classes this fall. We will still deliver a first-class education to all students but will do so in ways that allow us to maintain community health for faculty, staff, and students.

All students are allowed to choose remote classes, and we are encouraging everyone to make their own decisions for their fall semester Emory experience. Our hope for the spring is to expand in-person opportunities if conditions allow.

Fall Semester Plans

On-campus housing is limited to those who have an approved housing agreement for the coming academic year and fit into the following categories: first-year and new transfer students, international students, undergraduate students receiving scholarships as part of a scholarship program specifying on-campus housing as a condition of their scholarship, and students with specific on-campus housing needs, pending review and approval of this form. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors not included in the categories listed above have remote-only learning this fall.

Taking Care of Each Other

“We know that we must take care of ourselves and each other if we are to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and remain on campus. We all recognize how difficult it is to build a sense of community within the constraints of our new environment, but we—students, faculty, and staff—are working together to provide each other with support in helping to keep us healthy and well while finding new and creative ways to connect, socialize, and learn.”—Enku Gelaye, Vice President and Dean of Campus Life
