COVID-19 Update

UPDATE 1/24/22: Return to campus. Testing is required for all students, staff, and faculty as we transition to in person learning. Please see this resource to learn what you need to do to return to campus.


In response to COVID-19, UIC’s College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts is taking a phased reopening approach to protect students, faculty, and staff and keep our community healthy. This fall’s hybrid plan includes both online and in-person classes; our buildings are open, with limited or restricted access. The college’s administrative offices are closed, and most college staff are working remotely.

UIC maintains a central website with information about COVID-19 for the university community at the link below. The campus site is the best resource during this dynamic situation:

All college staff remain accessible at the email addresses in the college directory.

If you are sick, or suspect you may have COVID-19, please review the information on this page.

Students with symptoms should call their primary care provider or Student Health at University Village at 312-996-2901 for guidance. Faculty and staff should call their primary care provider or University Health Service at 312-996-7420 during business hours or the University of Illinois Hospital at 866-600-CARE (2273) and press 9 after hours for guidance.
