Due to limited access to campus, only a certain number of campus spaces will be available to students, faculty, and staff in the on-campus testing protocol this spring. Please be aware of renewed, clearly posted occupancy limits, which will vary depending on the size of the space. Programming and space use on campus are subject to change based on evolving state restrictions.

  • The Facilities Department has inspected mechanical HVAC systems throughout campus and performed maintenance and replaced filters where needed.
  • Open windows whenever possible when a space is occupied, including classrooms, labs, residential bedrooms, and office spaces. Open windows enhances ventilation and air change in a space.
  • Close windows completely when leaving a space overnight or for more than a few hours. This is especially critical during the winter, and will prevent damage to pipes and equipment.
  • Some spaces on campus have mechanical HVAC systems with windows that do not open. In these spaces the HVAC system will provide ventilation.

Hours and Menus

Resident students use their residential meal plan, and faculty, staff and commuter students who are on campus may also use the dining hall by paying the door rate at the register or purchasing a block plan. All patrons must tap at the register and should be mindful of social distancing when moving about and eating. State guidelines require dining patrons to wear a face mask at all times except when eating and drinking. The dining hall has been updated to meet health guidelines and to provide additional space between patrons and tables, so seating may be limited during peak times. All meals can also be taken to-go, and additional seating is available in the lower student center.
