Back on Campus this Fall!

Eastern is the #1 ranked public regional university in New England two years in a row in U.S. News and World Report’s 2021 Best Colleges guide.

The University is planning a full return to on-ground, on-campus operations in fall 2021. Eastern is Connecticut’s public liberal arts university, offering small classes and personalized instruction on a beautiful residential campus. We expect to deliver that same experience to students this fall.

  • On-campus housing will be at full occupancy (2,600 beds in 14 residence halls)
  • All classes will be on-ground, except for the usual small number of online classes, i.e. for graduate programs
  • A full slate of athletic events, including NCAA Division III games — conference and non-conference — as well as intramurals, club sports, and recreational programming. The gym, pool, and weight rooms will be open. We also expect that spectators can return to root for the Warriors at our athletic events.

Eastern will continue to follow CDC guidelines and will make adjustments to its plans as health conditions warrant.
