Dean of the College Jill Dolan's Jan. 19 memo to faculty about undergraduate teaching, which will mostly remain virtual, for the spring 2021 semester.
At the request of the New Jersey Department of Health, Princeton University will be one of numerous distribution points for the COVID-19 vaccine once available throughout the state. The University must follow the direction of the state health department and does not yet know when it will receive vaccine doses.
Vice President for Campus Life W. Rochelle Calhoun emailed undergraduates about the importance of reviewing and signing the social contract and completing other online requirements before the spring 2021 semester.
A reminder to the University community about New Jersey's travel guidelines ahead of the holidays and COVID-19 testing resources, as well as information about planning for the distribution of vaccines in the state.
To further the safeguarding of the University community’s health and safety, University- sponsored travel must be strictly limited until further notice. These restrictions must balance the need to conduct essential travel against that of protecting against harm to travelers, outbreaks on campus that could impact University operations, and the spread of COVID-19 into the communities we visit.
The University has released new information for undergraduates about move-in for the spring semester and arrival quarantine procedures, and has provided updates regarding housing, dining and other campus services and activities this spring.

In light of President Eisgruber’s November 24th announcement inviting undergraduates back to campus this spring, we’re reaching out to ask whether your department plans to resume undergraduate access to your research spaces and if so, in what capacity, given current health and safety restrictions and available resources.
The Dean of the Faculty, Dean for Research and Acting Dean of the Graduate School have announced next steps in the resumption of on-campus research and scholarly activities. The update makes it possible for faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and others in academic departments and institutes to request permission to work on campus.
For spring 2021, all student organization facilities will remain closed for individual and student group use until further notice.
