Roadmap to Fall

As we return to traditional on-campus operations, we want to assure the LSU community that safety is our guidepost. We will follow all CDC and state safety guidance, and will do everything possible to protect the health of our students, faculty, and staff.

Updates and modifications to fall reopening will be communicated on this site. All information provided is subject to change if the public health and safety situation changes.

Download the "Roadmap to Fall 2020" for comprehensive information on our guiding principles as we return to campus as well as our plans to keep everyone safe and healthy, including specific guides for students and employees.
