N.C. State University students can take in-person classes for the spring semester and live in campus housing, the school’s chancellor announced Wednesday.

Chancellor Randy Woodson said on the school’s website that classes will start Jan. 11 and finish April 29. There will be a mix of in-person, hybrid and online classes for undergraduate and graduate students. However, N.C. State will work to ensure students will have a chance to take courses remotely if they choose, according to the chancellor.

Woodson also said the university will hold spring break March 15-19 and will conduct final exams May 3-7.

N.C. State reported more than 30 clusters of COVID-19 since classes began in August, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported. According to the school, students contracted COVID-19 in residence halls, fraternity and sorority houses and in off-campus apartments. It led the school to move all undergraduate classes online for the remainder of the fall semester.

Woodson said N.C. State would more aggressively enforce violations of the school’s community standards and state mandates on and off campus to keep the school safe and well.
