School of Information Response to COVID-19 Coronavirus

All I School classes will be conducted by distance learning beginning on March 10 through at least the end of the summer semester.

For Fall 2020 INFO classes, the course schedule has detailed information for each class about teaching modality and expectations of real-time attendance. In accordance with UC Berkeley policy, no student will be required to take in-person classes.

All upcoming I School events will be cancelled or provided remotely during this time.

All I School staff are working remotely; all or most staff expect to continue working remotely through at least January 1, 2021.

South Hall is closed and card key access has been disabled, except for essential employees.

I School operations will continue as usual, albeit remotely. Please feel free to contact any of our staff by email; we plan to be available to you during normal business hours.

We are aware that some students may not have the ideal space or Internet connection at home, and we are committed to working with you. Please reach out to help@ischool.berkeley.edu if you need assistance.

Most campus buildings are closed, and most campus operations are shut down, except for student housing and dining and essential health services. Essential research operations will continue on campus only with the express permission of the office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.

We recognize that this is a disruptive and stressful situation and that it is evolving rapidly. We’re thankful to be part of a cohesive community and ask that we all continue to support one another with grace and kindness.

Thank you for your flexibility and patience as we deal with this uncertain situation.
