Due to increasing coronavirus cases in Rhode Island and new restrictions issued from Governor Gina Raimondo and the Rhode Island Department of Health, Salve Regina University has announced that beginning Monday, November 30 all classes and labs will be offered remotely for the remainder of the semester. Final exams will be offered remotely as well.

On Thursday, Governor Raimondo announced a two-week pause for Rhode Island, which includes the closure of in-person colleges and universities.

Residence halls at Salve Regina University will remain open for the remainder of the semester, and students who previously opted to remain on campus are able to stay if they so choose.
