Planning for the 2020–21 academic year

The return to residence planning process

At Gettysburg College, we are committed to a residential educational model.

Learn about our return to residence

We look to the fall committed to return to that residential model, but we also recognize that the ongoing pandemic may cause us to adapt our planning in the months ahead. To ensure that we continue to structure our fall semester as thoughtfully as possible, the College established a Scenario Planning Steering Committee, consisting of four working groups.

Moving forward, the College will create working groups focused on implementing the steps necessary to return to a residential environment. More information about these groups will be forthcoming, in the meantime, please contact
