Many schools are preparing to reopen campus this fall. To make that possible, university leaders are looking at every available option to shrink class sizes, “de-densify” on-campus housing and dining facilities, and prepare to use many of their buildings in new ways.
Kaitlyn Maloney and Ann Forman Lippens discuss the magnitude and complexity of the challenge. They examine ways to create dedicated isolation and quarantine spaces not only for students who test positive for the coronavirus but for others who may have been in close contact with those students. They also explore how to balance faculty and department preferences on space utilization with institutional demand for greater flexibility.
