Frequently Asked Questions

Protecting Our Community

UTA always recommends our community members follow CDC and public health guidelines, which are similar to what is recommended during cold and flu season, including:

  • Stay home if you are sick and seek medical attention.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer.

The Office of Facilities Management has increased its sanitization of public spaces on campus, including focused sanitization of touch points such as handrails, door handles, common spaces, common area seating and tables, etc. Additional hand sanitizer dispensers have been installed across campus as well.

We understand some of these measures will be an inconvenience to some members of our community, but we take the health and safety of our Maverick family seriously. There will be many questions and challenges that we will need to resolve together during this unprecedented situation. We will continue our efforts and implement new procedures and guidelines as warranted. We appreciate the work of our faculty and staff as they prepare to protect our campus and assist our students to complete the semester successfully.
