PHOENIX — The University of Arizona announced on Tuesday that it has partnered with WeWork to expand the school’s global campus network.

The expansion will include over 490 WeWork locations in 80 cities across 37 countries, bringing UArizona’s Global Microcampus Network to a total of more than 650 combined locations worldwide.

This will allow both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in UArizona’s international programs to be able to continue their education from their home country by having access to WiFi, a study space and in-person community.

“Worldwide health concerns have forced universities to adapt how we meet the needs of international students looking for a path to a U.S. degree,” UArizona President Robert Robbins said in a press release.

Those enrolled in the school’s abroad programs will have access to “hot desk” space, which will allow students the ability to work from anywhere within the common areas of a WeWork location while also receiving access to its office amenities.

Numerous cleaning and social distancing measures have been created and instilled within all WeWork locations in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19.

The full list of UArizona’s WeWork locations can be found online.

Last month, the school announced its plans to create a fully online university and acquire the assets of Ashford University.
