As college students across New England return to campus for the fall semester, they're being tested for the coronavirus. And so far, more than 700 have tested positive at nearly 80 schools in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

A New York Times database is tracking all of the coronavirus cases at colleges and universities across the country. The list includes public, four-year universities in the United States, through Sept. 2. So schools like the University of New Hampshire, which recently had an outbreak of at least 11 cases, are not yet included.

The database includes total cases dating back to the start of the pandemic, so some of them are no longer active. For example, Bennington College in Vermont is listed as having three cases, which the school said were caught through arrival testing and have since been medically cleared. It also includes self-reported cases even if the students were off campus and learning remotely, which was the case at Worcester State University. The school said it has done 2,402 tests since the start of the fall semester, and there are no current active cases.

Here's a look at how many cases there are among college students in each state, and how many there are on each campus:


Connecticut has 361 cases at nine schools

Maine has 23 cases at eight schools

Massachusetts has 252 cases at 34 schools

New Hampshire has 38 cases at five schools

Rhode Island has 30 cases at five schools

Vermont has 18 cases at seven schools
