Dear faculty, staff and students,

These are challenging times as the impact of COVID-19 is continually being felt around the world. The university is continually working together with the government of Bahrain to ensure that we provide you with the best possible support. The university has taken proactive measures to protect the health and ensure the safety and wellbeing of our faculty, staff and students.

We have moved all classes including any teaching and research activities online. The university has opened a 24/7 helpdesk for any technical support. Faculty members and students are able to maintain regular contact through the university’s online platforms; Microsoft Teams and Blackboard. We have also taken steps to minimized travel to campus. In alignment with the government guidelines, most of the faculty and staff will be working from home. We have also introduced a number of new policies related to student’s assessment and grading during this time. We will provide you with more details on this matter in the coming days.

As the situation unfolds, we will keep you updated with specific details and guidance. In the meantime, keep yourself and loved ones safe as we confront this pandemic together.
