What to Expect on Campus

Entering and Exiting Buildings

Among other measures, larger buildings may have doors designated to be “Enter” or “Exit” only in order to avoid congestion.

Circulating Through Buildings

Building occupants navigating through building corridors and hallways should follow the right side of these passageways and should avoid congregating.

Elevators and Stairs

Occupants are encouraged to use stairs for vertical circulation through buildings and should follow the right side of stairways.

Elevators should be limited to two occupants. Those waiting for elevators in lobbies should practice appropriate physical distancing. Those using elevators are required to wear masks or face covering regardless of traveling alone or with others. You should also avoid touching the elevator buttons with your exposed hand/fingers, if possible. Wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizers with greater than 60% ethanol upon departing the elevator.


Individuals are expected to keep at least six feet of distance in restrooms across campus. Please be mindful of the number of individuals inside a building restroom, and limit occupancy to ensure appropriate physical distancing. 

Signage Program

The University has developed a portfolio of posters, graphics, and decals to guide the building occupants and visitors as they enter, travel through, occupy, and exit buildings. Common areas in buildings such as main entry doors, lobbies, and restrooms will be populated with signage with reminders of safe hygiene practices and other important information.
