TALLAHASSEE – The State University System of Florida is pleased to announce that all 12 public universities expect to increase classroom occupancy to pre-COVID capacity by the 2021-22 academic year and return to pre-COVID operations. Further, we anticipate returning to full in-person participation in athletic and social activities on our campuses, including fan participation in stadiums and arenas.

We applaud Governor Ron DeSantis, the Florida Department of Health, and the Florida Division of Emergency Management for their success in securing the availability and access to COVID-19 vaccinations for our students, faculty, and staff, as well as the extraordinary efforts of our faculty and administrations to continue to provide high-quality education and services for our students.
