Update from Denison University
On March 16, 2020, we made an important decision to extend remote learning for the rest of the semester. We also are taking actions to close our residence halls.

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve quickly and dramatically. A week ago, we believed reducing the density of people on campus would get us through the coming weeks. We held out hope we could return to in-person learning and finish out the semester on campus. However, with the continued spread of the virus and our expectation that more areas of operation may be restricted by government order, we do not believe returning to in-person learning this semester is possible. Further, we are increasingly concerned about being able to sustain adequate services for the students remaining on campus. We also need to take steps to protect the health and safety of our faculty and staff.
Please watch this video for more information about our rationale for these decisions.
