Commuter Student Access

We are excited to share a few changes starting Tuesday, April 6th, 2021.

To provide additional access to space across the Residential and Academic campus, we have created in the School of Management study spaces that can be reserved. To support student wellness, Athletics has created a Holmes Sports Center plan to be open to allow the use of the pool, weight room, and cardiovascular equipment. Lastly, as programs are conceptualized and created, you will be able to attend them when they are available.

Please know, it will take the community support in following the rules to allow for these spaces and opportunities to remain open. We will evaluate the space used every two weeks to ensure we meet student needs and overall safety.
