Returning to Campus | University of South Florida

We are so excited to welcome you back! Whether you’re a student, faculty or employee on campus, we are ready to be together, in person, again. 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. 

This webpage is meant to help you transition and find the resources you need to prepare for the months ahead. It’s a work in progress, so come back, take a look around—bookmark it! Thank you for your ongoing compassion for our community as we navigate our safe return together.

Protecting Our Campus Communities

USF is committed to promoting the health and well-being of our students, faculty and employees, ensuring timely access to medical care, vaccination information and other resources to protect our campus communities. Information below is subject to change based on further 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).

Students

We’ve missed you on campus and are so excited to welcome you back! USF will return to full classroom capacity and face-to-face courses, as well as in-person athletic and social activities beginning Summer B (June 28) and continuing into the Fall.

Faculty

Throughout the pandemic, USF Faculty have remained steadfast in their commitment to the success of our students, adapted to new technologies and teaching modalities, and sought creative solutions to keep our students connected and engaged in our “new normal,” all while continuing to tackle real-world challenges through research, scholarly and creative activity. As we excitedly prepare for our full return to on-campus operations, we recognize this marks another moment of adaptability. The following resources are designed to provide you with the information and resources necessary to support the transition.

Employees

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.
