Classes to Move Online Following Thanksgiving
Due to the rising Covid-19 infection rates in the St. Louis area, the majority of on-ground classes in the St. Louis area will move to remote instruction beginning on Monday, November 30 — the first day following the Thanksgiving break. This includes Webster’s Gateway, Westport, Webster Groves and Winghaven campuses.
Classes requiring in-person instruction or specific facilities such laboratories or specialized equipment will continue meeting on campus as scheduled. The deans of the colleges/schools will continue work with faculty to determine what courses will remain in-person and notify the students affected.
University operations will continue uninterrupted with on-campus services like the library, dining, financial aid, and housing remaining open through the duration of the Fall Term. Students residing in campus housing will be able to remain through the remainder of the semester.
