Reopening Radford University


In response to the COVID-19 global health pandemic, Radford University is putting measures in place to protect and promote the health, safety, and well-being of the campus and the community.  As such, campus will look different this fall.

This website has been developed in order to provide important information regarding the campus reopening.  This site houses detailed information about campus operations and services, as well as expectations of all Highlanders.

As we reopen campus on July 27, 2020 and begin classes on August 12, 2020, there is no perfect plan, ideal situation, or one-size-fits-all solution. However, we are working diligently and thinking proactively about what will work best for our students, faculty, staff, and the broader community given our current environment and difficult position. We are committed to working through these challenges and opportunities together!
