COVID-19 Updates

The University moved to remote learning for the remainder of the spring semester, shifted to remote work for employees to the greatest extent possible, and plans to celebrate the Class of 2020 Commencement at a later date this year.

We also have information on academic policies, student belongings, fall registration, refunds, summer plans, budget and operational updates, planning for the 2020–21 academic year, and Governor Northam's phased re-opening plan. Visit the COVID-19 response website.

Excellence Lives Within Us.

Spiders are curious. Ambitious. Determined. And we employ these talents to create extraordinary results. We know that what we do here has an incredible impact everywhere.

Read our stories and see the difference we make.

"Graduates: you are taking the next step in your lives at a time of great uncertainty in our society; and that can be frightening and even overwhelming at times. And yet, I have every confidence in your ability to meet this moment with courage and compassion, using it as a catalyst to create more good in the world β€” and ultimately to accomplish everything you have set out to do." β€”#URichmond President Crutcher
