COVID-19 Update March 16

This communication was sent campuswide March 16, 2020.

Dear Weber State Family:

Following the new federal guidelines issued March 16 regarding the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, Weber State University is implementing the following measures effective immediately.

Stewart Library, Shepherd Union Building and Stromberg Complex will close at the end of the business day on Monday, March 16. Employees with offices in these buildings will continue to have access to these facilities.

All remaining computer labs and testing centers will close at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17. These facilities will continue to use social-distancing guidelines and follow rigid cleaning protocols while open on Tuesday.

WSU Davis in Layton, Center for Continuing Education in Clearfield, Farmington Station, Morgan, Roy, the West Center and Wildcat Stores at all locations will close Tuesday, March 17 at 6 p.m. 

We recognize this decision impacts students who rely on access to these resources. The university is in the process of providing technology to students who lack computer resources. Students who need to check out a computer can complete the form located at Laptop Checkout.

Additional updates:

Weber State University has canceled all Study Abroad trips through May 10.

A decision about commencement and convocations is expected from the Utah System of Higher Education on Wednesday, March 18. We will provide updates as quickly as possible.

The Children’s School will close all locations at the end of the business day on Wednesday, March 18. When that occurs, the Community Education Center in Ogden will also close.

Students are not only asked to remain off campus, but also to refrain from congregating anywhere per the latest federal coronavirus guidelines. We continue to ask employees to work from home if they are able. However, critical services, such as food services to students living in Residence Halls, will continue to operate. 

The university will continue to post updates at and that site’s FAQ page.

As President Brad Mortensen said at today’s town hall, “Thank you for your spirit of cooperation and fortitude in this difficult situation. Stay safe, and stay in touch.”
