TUCSON, Ariz. — The University of Arizona will shut down in-person learning for the fall semester, shifting to remote learnin Nov. 23.

According to a UArizona tweet, the remainder of the fall semester will shift to remote learning.

UArizona has had students on campus for in-person learning since Aug. 24.

According to UArizona spokeswoman Pam Scott, the university made the announcement in October:

We made this announcement way back that students would stay through Thanksgiving break and then go home until Spring Break. There are only 8 instructional days after the Thanksgiving break. Most news outlets reported it following the Oct. 12 briefing. That was the reason for the Thanksgiving Travel Survey so students could let us know their plans.
