    Face Coverings

    Based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control about fully vaccinated individuals, IUP will not require indoor face coverings/masks for fully vaccinated individuals.

    Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are urged to follow CDC guidelines recommending masking indoors; students, employees, and visitors are expected to be on the honor system related to masking.

    Any student, employee, or visitor who chooses to be masked (regardless of vaccination status) is encouraged and welcomed to do so. Masking is not required indoors for fully vaccinated individuals (all are to be on the honor system regarding masking).

    Dining Facilities

    Our dining facilities are set up to maintain social distancing, with simplified menus and less movement around the dining hall. Read more on our Dining on Campus page.

    Campus Safety and Building Modifications

    Visitors to campus should keep in mind that the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to modify the way our campus operates. Each building will have sanitation stations available. Visitors will also see signage at each entrance and in hallways to remind them about safety guidelines. Read more about our on-campus operations on the Campus Health and Safety page.
