All visitors to campus are extremely limited at this time. For prospective students and their families, we ask that you review our Admissions site for COVID-19 related details regarding virtual tour opportunities.
Although we are not currently hosting formal campus visits and events, prospective students may visit campus on their own and utilize our tour app or campus maps for a self-guided campus tour, following the same requirements as students, faculty and staff, including conducting a self-screening before coming to campus. Visitors are not permitted to access campus buildings or facilities.
Yes. Anyone entering a University building must wear a cloth face covering to minimize risk to other building occupants and the Lehigh community. This policy is informed by guidance from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the CDC, and Pennsylvania Department of Health and tailored to the unique context of our residential and University community.
On the Lehigh campus:
Visitors are not permitted in the Packer/230 West Packer residences. Saucon Village residents living in graduate and non-traditional housing are currently permitted to have visitors in accordance with their lease terms. Visitors during this time are only permitted access to your personal living area and are not permitted to access other campus spaces or facilities. Current campus restrictions should always be followed. Students who are hosting visitors in their apartment are responsible for knowing the current university protocols and communicating them with their visitor(s). A visitor is required to complete a self-screening.
Undergraduate students are not permitted to host visitors from off campus in any Lehigh residence hall, building or facility.
All students, faculty, and staff are required to complete all necessary training and health requirements such as testing and quarantining before returning, and follow proper health protocols when on campus.
For all students, faculty, staff and visitors:
All on-campus and off-campus meetings and gatherings (indoors and outdoors) are limited to five people at most. For any gathering up to five people, appropriate social distancing of at least six feet from others must be able to be observed and face coverings must be worn. Given no evidence of transmission in classroom and formal settings, in-person courses may exceed this five-person limit in accordance with the established course format when held. The restrictions on gatherings include occupancy; for example, five roommates living together are not permitted to host visitors.
