Rocket Restart

Returning Safely

The safety and health of our students, staff and faculty is our priority for The University of Toledo.

Aligned with the state's Responsible Restart Ohio plan, our pandemic planning teams continue to develop our Rocket Restart plan to promote a safe return to campus for the fall 2020 semester. This COVID-19 recovery response plan is based on the framework of prevention, risk mitigation, continuity of operations and continued delivery of quality instruction.

Our Rocket Restart plan has been developed using a number of recommendations that are based on the most current public health information at the time. This plan is subject to change based on increases in the number of COVID-19 cases in the region and further guidance by local, state and federal public health experts, government officials and our own health and safety experts.

Safeguarding Success

Campus will look different when you return this fall.

We have taken significant measures to promote the health and safety of our entire campus community. While there is no perfect response plan for the COVID-19 pandemic, UToledo has worked diligently to provide the best plan to address the challenges we anticipate with the uncertainty of the virus. We are committed to continuing our operations and offering a world-class education for our students.


Let's talk. We’re here to help.

UToledo will be holding online webinars each Wednesday at 2 p.m. with campus leaders who can answer your questions. Take a look at our upcoming topics:
