All campus gatherings and events are currently limited to 100 attendees or less, for indoor meetings and events, based on venue capacity, in accordance with New York State guidance. Event spaces are cleaned and disinfected after each use. New event protocols will be implemented to approve and monitor all campus gatherings. To further reduce risks for the campus community, no external visitors who have not approved are permitted to attend any campus gathering or event. Protocols are subject to change based on the evolving situation.

Rensselaer travel restrictions are still in effect. Exceptions may be granted (i.e., required research trips, travel to athletic competitions, etc.) if consistent with federal, state, and CDC regulations and guidelines. Any travel exception requires approval as delineated in the return to campus plan.
