Kent State University’s Semester Plans

During the 2022 Spring Semester, most aspects of university life to be very close to pre-pandemic normal, with a return of all in-person classes, engaging activities and residence halls that are at capacity. 

Face coverings will continue to be required inside all buildings, and are strongly recommended outdoors where six feet of social distancing cannot be maintained.

Because of the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, our plans are always subject to change to adapt to new pandemic conditions that might arise, including the rise of the COVID-19 omicron variant.

For the health and safety of our entire university community, on Aug. 27, 2021, Kent State implemented a COVID-19 vaccine requirement which now extends to all students, faculty and staff.  While booster shots are not yet part of this requirement, they are strongly encouraged.

All our decisions will continue to be guided by the best public health science and recommendations from federal, state and local health agencies, as they have since the beginning of the pandemic.
