An important aspect of returning to campus is ensuring that the spaces we will return to are set up to foster and encourage physical distancing. There will be some changes to campus facilities, both in how they are organized and what they are used for.
Facilities services is working closely with building architects and health experts to understand what modifications may need to be made to our indoor spaces. This includes rearranging furniture, installing plexiglass, creating clear ingress and egress points, installing hand sanitizer stations, and understanding how many people can be in a building or room at a certain time.
Repurposing of facilities
Additionally, certain campus areas are being reimagined to create additional space for eating, classroom space, and studying. More information about modifications to campus spaces and their potential new uses will be available soon.
