The University of Lynchburg has decided that Spring 2020 courses will be conducted online for the remainder of the semester. Commencement will be held at a later date. These were not easy decisions, but we must protect everyone’s well-being.
- As a result, we encourage residential students to move out of their campus residences and return their residential key(s) by Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at 4 p.m.
- We understand you may not be able to return this week and retrieve the contents of your room. Should you decide not to travel, your belongings will remain locked in your room until such time as travel becomes safer. We will adhere to the CDC’s travel guidelines in determining a date.
- If you decide to come to Lynchburg in the next several days, we ask that you follow some basic safety precautions.
- A small number of students (international and others) had been approved to remain on campus for the remainder of the semester. At this time, those students will remain on campus and will likely be relocated into Hundley Hall. More information about that process is forthcoming.
- The Office of Housing and Residence Life will continue to engage with all residential students throughout the remainder of the semester. Please keep an eye on your email for more information.
- We are discussing room and board reimbursements and/or credits. Information will be shared as it becomes available.
- In the meantime, faculty have been getting ready for online instruction.
- They should be communicating with you via email to discuss what this will look like, how your syllabus may have changed, and how they are going to accommodate learning disabilities, etc.
- If you have no internet connection where you live, we’ll work with you. Please let your faculty know so they can make arrangements.

The Office of Housing and Residence Life will maintain that list and contact students if we have questions regarding the information provided. We ask that this form is submitted by March 27, 2020.

A program called U-Box allows students to store belongings in boxes that can remain in Lynchburg at one of U-Haul’s locations or be shipped to another location. These boxes can be delivered to the student’s address to be loaded, or it can be loaded at one of the U-Haul facilities.
