A message from President Marta Meana - additional changes to university operations
Dear University Community:
Earlier this week, Governor Sisolak issued additional emergency directives related to the COVID-19 pandemic that is gripping Nevada and the country. Over the past several weeks, some faculty or staff have had the option of continuing to work from the office but that is no longer the case. The recent developments require further adjustments to our campus...
Due to limited staffing resulting from quarantine measures, the Student Wellness Pharmacy will not open on Tuesdays and Fridays as previously announced, until at least April 8.
The UNLV pharmacist will be available by phone at 702-895-0278, and can transfer prescriptions that need to be refilled before April 8 to a pharmacy of choice for students, faculty and staff.
Message from the Provost: Campus events and research continuity
Dear UNLV Community,
The health and well-being of the campus community, our partners and stakeholders continue to be at the forefront of our decision making and planning in dealing with the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Earlier this month, President Marta Meana had advised cancelling or postponing events held on campus through Sunday, April 12, out of an abundance of caution.
In an effort to provide students with greater flexibility as UNLV adjusts to remote instruction and students deal with potential health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are extending the last day to drop or withdraw from classes (without a refund) or change from credit to audit by one week. The new deadline to drop a class or withdraw completely from classes is Friday, April 10,...

In light of today's announcement and the increase of cases of COVID-19 in Nevada, I am now making it official that we will remain on remote instruction for the remainder of the semester. It just makes sense. Even if the public health situation improved before the...

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,
Today marks the first time in history that UNLV will deliver all of its instruction remotely. This is a monumental task, and I want to thank everyone for their efforts to get this done. We are converting more than 5,000 courses – or 87.5 percent of our classes – to remote instruction.
There’s no way we can do this without a good number of bumps along the way!...
