Social distance to prevent COVID-19 spread

UT Arlington is adopting a phased approach to safely resuming campus activity, while encouraging social distancing to provide the healthiest possible environment for staff, faculty, and students.

That approach include signs concerning face masks, social distancing, and other healthy practices, as well as limited room capacity, seat and desk arrangements, Plexiglass shields, and more.

Check our Mavs Back 2020 page for updates on what to expect as we return to campus for fall 2020.
