What campus services will be running? Libraries, unions, computer labs, recreation facilities?

  • We are working with the libraries, the unions, labs, and other campus facilities to come up with creative solutions to allowing safe access as well as finding spaces for students to study.
  • We are currently preparing for a safe reopening of our recreation/wellness facilities. We expect to have a plan in place soon and will share it widely. In the meantime, visit recwell.wisc.edu for a list of virtual programs, including group fitness classes, intramural sports, at-home workouts, personal training, and well-being resources.
  • Our libraries will be open for appointment-based access to collections, study space and computer lab services. In order to improve safety (block off time for cleaning, for example), there will be a reduction in library locations and hours, and increased support through online services. We remain committed to providing library support for learning and research, but in general students should expect limited capacity in the library buildings and should plan to do studying in their residences as much as possible.
  • Our intention is to have some of our computer labs open in-person in the fall (safety permitting). We’re working with our partners to confirm where this will be feasible based on their own, localized plans for reopening.  In addition to this, we also have plans to continue our laptop checkout program and to open up access to certain InfoLabs desktops through remote desktop connections.
  • More details about which libraries and computer labs will be open, and under what terms, will be finalized as the start of the semester draws closer.
