The following information reflects the current status of COVID-19 response in the School of Design:
The UIC Architecture + Design Studios building is inaccessible until university preparations for a safe return to campus have been completed. In the case of any emergency needs, the ADS building does remain open to staff by swipe access and we are prepared to coordinate with students to retrieve any personal items stored in ADS.
Students need not clean out their lockers. There is no hard deadline for locker clean-out and no late fees will be accessed following the previously issued May 8 deadline.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE SICK – NEW
Students with symptoms should call Student Health at University Village at 312-996-2901 for guidance; faculty and staff should call University Health Service at 312-996-7420 during business hours or the University of Illinois Hospital at 866-600-CARE (2273) after hours.
FALL 2020 PLANNING
As we plan for fall instruction, our highest priority is the health and safety of our students and faculty. The School of Design will adhere to all state and campus safely protocols, once established. Any individuals with compromised immune systems, or the need to protect family members from potential COVID-19 exposure, will not be required to come to campus. We intend to make all undergraduate coursework available online at the start of the fall semester. This does not preclude in-person small group meetings and/or demonstrations, that may be scheduled by individual instructors. All First Year students will have opportunity to meet in-person on campus in small group sessions.
Our print, project, and fabrication labs will all be fully staffed to service faculty and students. Delivery of these services will require new protocols, now in development.
More details to come.
