Returning to Campus | University of South Florida

Welcome back! Whether you’re a student, faculty or employee on campus, we are excited to be together. This past year has been unlike any other, and at the University of South Florida, in the Tampa Bay region, and in Bulls Country beyond, we’ve learned how truly resilient and strong we are—and that together, we can accomplish anything.  

As we begin this new academic year, use this webpage to find the resources you need to settle in to the Fall semester. This page will be updated as needed, so take a look around—bookmark it! Thank you for your ongoing compassion for our community as we navigate our safe return together. Be well, and go Bulls! 

Protecting Our Campus Communities

To help us provide high-quality classes, student services, extracurricular activities and athletic programs in a healthy environment, we strongly recommend that everyone that is eligible get vaccinated. We also expect that all members of our community will wear a mask on campus, vaccinated or unvaccinated. 

Since the onset of the pandemic, our successes are a result of our campus communities accepting a shared responsibility for their health and well-being and practicing recommended precautions. Being vaccinated can protect your health and others and will help avoid disruptions. Thank you for doing your part to help protect our campus communities so we can have a healthy semester. Information is subject to change based on guidance from the University’s Executive Policy Group (EPG) and external sources, such as the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Student Life


The following resources are designed to provide you with the information necessary to support your instruction for the Fall semester.

Faculty Toolkit


Over the last year, so many of our USF employees have been on-site keeping our campuses running smoothly and efficiently, while others at home have been providing remote resources and services for student and faculty success. We have learned that we can thrive at home and on campus, and are looking forward to this next year and the future of work at USF.
