Important Notice

In response to the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, and evidence of its likely progression over the next few months, all University events on Grounds are prohibited until at least May 15. Final Exercises will not take place as currently planned. A team is already focused on developing creative alternatives to mark this important occasion for the Class of 2020, which includes holding Final Exercises at a later date. We will communicate updates as we have them. All events on Grounds have been cancelled during this semester.


Our top priority is the safety of students and members of the local and UVA community, visitors, and guests. More information on UVA's response to COVID-19.

Memorial to Enslaved Laborers: Public Dedication Events


On March 11, 2020, President Ryan shared an important message regarding changes to University operations in response to the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19. All University events with more than 100 attendees are prohibited for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers Dedication Weekend has been postponed until a later date. 

We will communicate with everyone our future plans as the COVID-19 pandemic is better under control and the University resumes to normal operations. The top priority is the safety of members of the local and UVA community.
