Campus Building Access

Campus Building Access

Most of our campus buildings will be open during the spring 2021 semester, though some may have limited access. View a campus building access chart here. Students can access their assigned residence hall using their ID cards. Modified-Virtual or On-Site faculty and staff can access their assigned buildings by using their ID cards or building key.

In an effort to de-densify learning spaces for the health and safety of students and faculty, certain classrooms designated for in-person learning have been set up with socially distanced seating. Other classrooms have been designated as open study spaces. Find the list here. You do not need to reserve these rooms in EMS for studying during building hours. Please adhere to safety and capacity signage posted in rooms.

Information on library services this semester can be found here.

When you are done using any campus space, please make sure all devices have been unplugged, all windows are closed, and everything has been locked and reset for a possible period of no use. For those working in an individual office, please take any trash to a common area trash or recycling bin, as custodians will not be entering individual faculty and staff offices.

If you are an employee designated “V” (virtual) for the spring 2021 semester and would like access to a campus building, please fill out the Faculty/Staff Spring 2021 Exception Access form to confirm your visit for contact tracing purposes, and complete the health and safety assessment on the LifeSafe app ( prior to coming to campus.

Health and Safety Training

As part of the Drew University Campus Restart Plan, all community members are required to participate in health and safety training. Drew’s Health & Safety Training Hub will guide you through the required three-part training:

  • The Moodle course “Health and Safety Training”
  • Daily COVID-19 self-screening health assessments prior to entering campus or leaving residence halls, via the LiveSafe app. LiveSafe will replace the Emergency Notification System (you can expect more information about this in the coming weeks).
  • The Drew Community Pledge, a social contract for all members of the University community, that describes ways in which members will protect themselves and others

All community members are expected to complete the training requirements, accessible via Drew’s Health & Safety Training Hub. Campus Life and Student Affairs, the University Provost’s office, and Human Resources will follow up with students, faculty, and staff who have not done so in a timely manner. Please complete this required training by September 1 or prior to your next return to campus, whichever is sooner.

Face Coverings

We all must contribute to a healthy and safe environment on campus. As such, face coverings must be worn at all times. Modified-Virtual or On-Site faculty and staff members may pick up reusable Drew cloth masks (one mask per staff/faculty member) in the Mail Room in Pepin between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
