William Paterson University has carefully planned its return to on-campus teaching and residence life for the Fall 2020 semester. The University began the semester on Monday, August 24 with a mix of in-person, hybrid, hyflex and online courses. All on-campus instruction follows social distancing and face covering policies.

The University developed a comprehensive plan based on guidance and standards provided by the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education (OSHE) for institutions of higher education, in concert with Gov. Phil Murphy’s state reopening plan, “The Road Back: Restoring Economic Health through Public Health.” The University is following all state and federal guidance regarding best public health practices to ensure a safe and healthy work and learning environment for its students, faculty, and staff.
