Safely taking care of business

Steps we're taking

With very few exceptions, all campus services and offices will be open in the Fall and have been busy all summer incorporating measures to serve student and visitor needs with safety in mind. We are rearranging office spaces and reception areas, and marking out 6-foot indicators where lines could form.  

Walking patterns on campus and individual office flow will be reconfigured to facilitate physical distancing for everyone’s safety. Some staff will continue to work remotely while others will come to campus to keep in-person services available. 

Things you can do

We encourage you to use funds loaded on your Skycard or a credit/debit card, rather than cash, to reduce the amount of exposure. Many of our Skycard readers are “proximity readers” or touchless.

Try the web or phone first. Most of our offices' forms are online--use theFort to find them--and you can always call an office by phone. If you still need to borrow a pen to sign something, we'll be sanitizing in between uses.

Remote work for campus staff

While offices that students frequent will have in-person coverage, campus will be reducing the number of people on campus by remote work when possible.

Student employment positions

Student employment positions are managed department by department. Depending on the position, the work may be done remotely, undergo scheduling changes to lessen the number of people in an office, or require new safety-related protocols. Please check with your direct supervisor for details.
