ODU COVID-19 Response:  More Information >>

This page was updated on May 11, 2021, 3:19 p.m. (Eastern).

Old Dominion University is working to safeguard the health of our community, following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health.

Recognizing that conditions may change, please be prepared to make any needed adjustments in response to the pandemic. The University will continue to assess conditions.

ODU offices are open, either virtually or physically.

Many offices and departments can hold appointments online, such as academic advising, financial aid, and the writing center. Faculty and staff who can telework are doing so as needed or required. The University is planning for staff to resume working on campus beginning this summer.

We will update students, faculty and staff regularly about any changes to our operating status.

  • A central page about ODU's response to the pandemic is at odu.edu/covid19.
  • ODU's campus reopening plan and related news is at odu.edu/blueprint.
  • In addition, updates to ODU’s operating status will be posted through the ODU Alerts System, on the University's website, and sent through ODU email to students, faculty and staff.
