Reporting Influenza-Like Illness and Missed Classes

We are encouraging Brown students who are ill with influenza-like illness (ILI) to report their missed class time and needs for assistance through this website. Log in to answer some questions which will enable us to know that you are ill with influenza-like symptoms, that you are being cared for, and what needs you have. The information you give will also allow us to confirm for faculty missed class time due to influenza illness.

You will receive a follow-up phone call from a staff member in Campus Life or the Dean of the College office, so please be sure to provide a phone number where we can reach you.

 If you get significantly worse before you receive a return phone call, please
call University Health Services at 863-1330863-1330.
