COVID-19 Update

Dear students,

We care about you. We know the spread of COVID-19 has led to a lot of changes in and outside of the University, and things can feel very uncertain and stressful. You may have questions and need support.

Due to the recent rise of COVID-19 cases in the State of Illinois, the Office of the Dean of Students will be closed until further notice. However the staff will remain available to assist you remotely.

Beginning on Monday, November 16, 2020, if you need assistance, please call us at 312-996-4857 or email us at dos@uic.edu to access service. We can also set up a virtual meeting with you if requested.

NOTE: In observance of the UIC winter break, our office will be closed from Thursday, December 24th through Friday, January 1st and will re-open Monday, January 4th. 

These changes will require some adjustments for us and for you, and we ask that you be patient as we adapt. If you reach out to us, know that we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Remember that the U and I Care program is here for you as a resource should you require additional support during this time. Visit the DOS website for more information. And if you would like some additional information about how to keep yourself healthy and well during this time, our friends at the Counseling Center and the Wellness Center have lots of tips and tools on their websites.

Please do what you can to stay healthy, care for yourself and care for one another. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need support.
