What are the guidelines for campus visitors?

Volunteers, adjunct faculty, tenants/affiliates residing in UB facilities, vendors, visitors and invited guests to campus who are otherwise not affiliated with the university are required to complete the Daily Health Check prior to their arrival on campus.

One of the most important things we can do is to work together to build and sustain a culture that takes our health, public health and the safety of others seriously. Students, faculty, staff and visitors must all follow a shared set of behavioral expectations  to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. We have a mutual responsibility to keep ourselves and each other safe.  

Whether you are coming to UB for business or leisure (e.g. walking your dog on campus grounds, a contractor or invited guest), all campus visitors will be required to abide by all campus safety protocols (including the use of face masks and physical distancing). Hosts of invited guests must ensure their guests are aware of and follow university protocols. Off-campus guests, including non-residential university students, are not permitted to enter the residence halls. The UB Libraries are closed to non UB affiliates.

If you are visiting the UB campus and require additional accessibility features, you must submit a health attestation through this form. This must be completed for every day you are on campus. 

New signage has been added across campus both indoors and outdoors, promoting safe practices, indicating flow of traffic in buildings, and designating where traffic is restricted.

For events and gatherings on campus, the university will adhere to New York State guidelines, as well as recommendations from the CDC and public health experts. This includes limiting the size of private, social gatherings as well as larger events and gatherings (e.g., arts, entertainment and other leisure activities) in both indoor and outdoor public spaces. The number of people allowed at an event or gathering may change, depending on the degree of COVID-19 spread within the community.
