University of Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The University of Portland is planning to reopen for its fall term. University officials said Tuesday it’s planning to open on Aug. 17.

KOIN-TV reports in-person classes will resume on Aug. 24 after a week of campus move-ins, orientations, coursework introductions and other training sessions.

The university says its traditional fall break in October will be eliminated and all in-person classes will end by Nov. 25 ahead of Thanksgiving. Final exams will be taken online.

University President Rev. Mark L. Poorman says the on-campus experience will be very different for students with strict health and safety protocols including social distancing, sanitization measures and face masks.
