Campus Plans & Guidelines
As we have done throughout the course of the pandemic, the University of Memphis has followed latest national (CDC), state and local guidelines and directives for our campus.
The University has steadily increased campus density with 100% of our staff back to a regular on-campus schedule as of July 1. (Employees should work with supervisors and HR on requests for accommodations.)
Buildings are open only to University of Memphis community members with appropriate access. Residence Halls are open to residents only.
