New This Week:

COVID-19 Rates Rising in Allegheny County

Given recent increased COVID-19 positive cases in Allegheny County, we ask that you continue your commitment to the common good as part of University’s COVID-19 response. Your collective and individual efforts have helped to keep the Carlow community safe throughout the pandemic.

If you have symptoms or reason to believe that you have been exposed to, or contracted, the COVID-19 virus, please quarantine and/or isolate per CDC updated guidance here. Students who test positive should remain in place and immediately contact Health Services by calling 412-578-6474.

Mask Update

As of today, we are currently remaining mask-optional on campus, except in The Campus Laboratory School and Early Learning Center where masking is required. As this trend continues to evolve, we are monitoring our strategy.

Help Needed? Submit a Care Report

Students occasionally struggle with affordability, academic barriers, and connecting to community resources. If you become concerned about yourself or others, please submit a report and let the Care Team know about any needs, questions or concerns. We are active throughout the summer months and will contact you, or those you refer, to help. You may also contact the Student Affairs office at 412-578-6293 or .
