Status of Buildings, Facilities, and Services

  • The statuses below are for IUP's Summer Sessions, which end August 6. The fall semester begins August 24.

    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.
