The University of Hartford plans to allow residential students to move in starting Aug. 24, and in-person classes will start two days later, President Greg Woodward has announced.

UHart, which closed its West Hartford campus in March amid the COVID-19 pandemic, will allow residential students to begin moving belongings into residence halls and on-campus apartment buildings starting in mid-August, with official move-ins occurring on a staggered schedule between Aug. 24 and Aug. 26, Woodward said. 

Courses will be held on a normal schedule -- although classes will be held on Labor Day -- through the fall semester until the Thanksgiving break, after which all classes and final exams through the end of the semester will be held online, Woodward said.

"President Woodward acknowledged that our students are eager to continue their education at UHart and that the entire campus community is looking forward to starting the fall semester in person and on campus," a UHart spokeswoman said in an email.

UHart's campus reopening plan is similar to the one announced last week for the four public universities within the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system. That plan, announced by CSCU President Mark Ojakian, has students moving onto campus Aug. 24, and courses moving online after Thanksgiving.

University of Connecticut President Thomas Katsouleas has said he will wait until June 30 to make an official determination on whether and how UConn will reopen its campuses to students.
