Towson University issued a campus-wide statement Tuesday afternoon announcing that all classes March 11 through 13 are cancelled to prepare for potential remote teaching, learning and working after spring break.

The University is asking students to take all essential belongings, including medications, from their residence halls or work spaces in case access to campus becomes restricted over the next two weeks.

TU has also suspended all university-sponsored events and gatherings through March 22, which is the last day of the planned spring break.

“This is based on current best-practices regarding social distancing as a prevention strategy for disease transmission,” the University statement said. “We will seek opportunities to enable certain events through live-streaming or other platforms.”
