Our Plan Forward - University of Florida


Welcome to the University of Florida’s website outlining how we can all have the safest and most productive semester possible as we work together to combat COVID-19. 

Led by UF Health’s scientific and medical researchers, UF has increased its in-person course offerings for Spring 2021 and is excited to welcome more students back to campus, even as others continue in hybrid or online formats. This website is where you will find the details on how you can have a successful spring semester, including information for students & familiesfaculty & staff, and visitors. We will update this site regularly and hope you bookmark it.

As Gators, we are characterized by our resilience and determination to press forward in the face of challenges. We hope you will join us as we care for one another, practice healthy behaviors, and embrace the spirit of learning and discovery that makes UF a leading public university in the country.

Let’s continue to do great things!
