Information about the
facilities and services below, as well as others, will be updated as details become available.
Remember that campus resources, facilities, and services (including computer labs, dining halls, and fitness centers) are available to all students, including those taking all-remote classes.
To limit the number of people on campus during summer, many buildings and offices have been physically closed. But, our employees are working hard—many of them remotely—and ready to assist you. Facilities staff members are readying buildings in preparation
for the fall.
Access to academic buildings is restricted.
Faculty and staff members who need to return to their offices to prepare for fall should refer to the Returning to Campus page, Arrival/Return
to Campus section.

for lunch and dinner during the following days and times:
The James G. Mill Fitness Center plans to reopen August 17 under normal hours but limited capacity (25 percent). No more than 21 people, including staff members, can be in the center, and no more than five people can be in the back room at any time. A

The IUP Libraries will be open only to students and faculty and staff members during the fall 2020 semester to reduce the risk of virus transmission. Because of limited seating, we are prioritizing purposeful use, such as quiet study and student use of
technology to succeed in their classes.

in the Stapleton main lobby. Face coverings will be required at all times, following IUP guidelines.

However, the post office will take special precautions to keep students and employees safe. For example, face masks will be required, the lobby will have a 10-person limit, and students will need to ask a postal employee to retrieve their mail—they will
not be able to access their own mailboxes. For more information, see “Everything You Need to Know about Using the IUP Post Office.”
For IUP departments, the post office will continue to manage bulk mail services, incoming mail/packages via USPS, and outgoing mail on a daily basis. Learn more: “Postal Service Operations for Fall 2020.”
