Hofstra University is planning for and expecting to have classes on campus for Fall 2020. We have a Task Force that is developing ways to get our campus ready, including guidelines for academic, residential and student life areas, and working with Northwell Health, our partner in the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing and Physician Assistant Studies, on health and safety protocols. All decisions about how classes are conducted will be based on the recommendations of public health officials and in accordance with state and federal guidelines.
