COVID-19: Greenhouse Studios Operations

The health and safety of our staff, collaborators, the UConn community, and the State of Connecticut are Greenhouse Studios’ highest priorities. Greenhouse Studios leadership provides this planning information in coordination with the University of Connecticut’s response to the public health situation related to the novel strain of coronavirus. In keeping with the University's latest advice, the Greenhouse Studios physical space will be closed and we will be continuing our work online until further notice.

We will be monitoring the situation and will share additional information on this page and via the Greenhouse Studios Slack channels on the UConn Libraries Slack Workspace. Please contact us by Slack or email with any questions. Students, faculty, and staff may access the UConn network via the Pulse Secure client, a VPN software, allowing them to access on-campus resources away from campus. Instructions for this resource can be found here:

Additionally, the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and the UConn Library will both continue to offer updates regarding COVID-19 response on their websites.
