Welcome Back

The University’s Task Force on Reopening has been working closely with Northwell Health, New York state’s largest health care system and our partner in the medical and nursing schools, to develop protocols that align with local, state and federal public health guidelines and preserve the best of the Hofstra experience while protecting our entire community.

Fall 2020 will be different in many ways, and our plans are a work in progress because the public health situation locally and nationally continues to evolve. This website will be your main source of information about Hofstra’s Safe Start for Fall 2020, and it will be updated regularly as additional details about re-opening are available.



You must wear a mask in all campus buildings, including residence halls, except for your own room, suite, or office. Masks will also be required outdoors when six feet of physical distance is not possible.


Keep at least six feet between you and other people whenever possible. Classrooms and public spaces will be reconfigured to ensure distancing.


All students and employees must answer a four-question screening via portal or smartphone app before coming to campus or attending class.
