UC Santa Barbara scales back reopening plans, citing COVID-19 infections among students

UC Santa Barbara now joins at least five other UC undergraduate campuses — out of nine in total — that will conduct essentially all classes remotely this fall because of the threat of the coronavirus. UC Irvine, UCLA and UC Riverside will hold almost all classes online when classes begin at those campuses in about a month. … UC Irvine is still planning to offer housing to one student per bedroom in its residence halls, but is offering fewer than 20 courses in person.
