For the 2020–21 academic year, Kenyon will offer a mix of in-person and remote instruction, welcoming every student to campus for at least one semester. 

First-years, sophomores and new transfer students are in residence for the fall semester. Seniors, juniors and sophomores will be in residence in the spring. We will reserve space on campus both semesters for students with exceptional circumstances, including international students, regardless of class year.

To petition for an exception, or to elect to study remotely or take time off in the spring, please complete the relevant form by Nov. 9 or otherwise specified date. 

COVID Reporting Dashboard

Throughout the year, Kenyon will administer COVID-19 testing to approximately 25% of students in residence weekly. The College receives copies of test results and will update each weekday a dashboard of aggregate data.

COVID-19 Signage

Kenyon has provided a mix of signs for common locations, preprinted signs available on request, PDF signs to download and print, and customizable signs.

Alert Status and Response

Many factors will be considered to assess the public health conditions on campus and guide the College’s response.
