Numerous companies around the world have announced they're getting rid of office space and allowing their employees to work from anywhere in the world, if their roles allows it. Have any major universities around the world announced a similar transition? It would be impossible for, say, cancer research to move "into the cloud" but there's no reason why theoretical math research would need any in-person interactions.

Obviously there's still the question of how to teach students but this was also executed successfully (in terms of technical feasibility, how good the outcomes have been is unclear to me) during the pandemic so in theory an institution might choose to shutdown large swaths of their campus altogether or switch to a hybrid model.
