Facilities & Programming


All of the facilities designed for student programs and activities will be open this fall, including the Duncan Student Center, the LaFortune Student Center, Washington Hall, Stepan Center, Rockne Memorial, the Smith Center for Recreational Sports, and the Ricci Band Building. These facilities will implement enhanced sanitization and disinfection protocols, will modify furniture and adjust capacities to University physical distancing requirements and may reduce operating hours to ensure deeper daily cleaning or accommodate academic classes. Here is a list of places students can utilize this fall.

Outdoor grounds may also be used informally by students. Here is a list of outdoor places where students can gather whenever possible.


The Student Activities Office has created updated club and organization guidelines and protocols to help students program safely. Attendance must be taken at all in-person events and meetings to allow for contract tracing if needed and, per the University's Visitor Policy, outside speakers or performers are not permitted for in person engagements, but can be contracted virtually. Due to adherence with public health practices, student group travel and off campus events, indoor choral activities, student dances, races and runs, and the student group concession stand program are suspended. While the intention is for student group policies to remain in place for the Fall 2020 semester, the University will continue to learn and adapt based on the most up-to-date public health guidance.

Following appropriate health practices, the division offices of Student Affairs and the Graduate School will be open and available to students in person at Campus Ministry, the Center for Student Support and Care, the Family Resource Center, the Gender Relations Center, the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development, Multicultural Student Programs and Services, the McDonald Center for Student Well-Being, the Office of Community Standards, the Office of Student Enrichment, RecSports, Residential Life, Student Activities, Student Media, and the University Bands. Virtual engagement opportunities with staff are also available based on the preferences of students.
