Visitors to Campus

Updated: Monday, Aug. 10, 2020

Monmouth University is committed to safeguarding the health and safety of its community members. Therefore, the University will significantly curtail the number of visitors to campus during the fall 2020 semester.  

Individuals who do visit campus will be required to complete and submit a COVID-19 health questionnaire prior to arrival. While on campus, visitors will be required to comply with campus safety protocols, including wearing a mask or face covering in all buildings and public areas. Visitors can avail themselves of a limited supply of disposable face masks in the Student Center if they fail to bring a mask or face covering to campus. 

All visits will be logged by the University and the information will be made available to contact tracers. 

Campus Tours 

We are excited to be offering prospective student tours of our beautiful and historic campus. More information is available on our Visitors to Campus webpage.

Outside Vendors and Contractors 

Vendors who have annual contracts with the University will be required to file the vendor company’s protocols for health/safety/screening of its employees with Monmouth University Purchasing Department. Vendors will be required to keep logs of campus deliveries for University review. Package deliveries to the University Mailroom will be logged by mailroom staff.  

Ad hoc vendors will be screened using a Monmouth University COVID-19 symptom questionnaire by the Monmouth University Police Department (MUPD) prior to entry to campus.  

MUPD will maintain such logs including area of campus destination.  

Offices Receiving Visitors 

All visitors must complete a Monmouth University COVID-19 symptom questionnaire prior to arrival. The area/department receiving the visitor is responsible for reviewing the questionnaire responses, restricting entry to campus based upon any positive response, and keeping records of the completed questionnaire.  

The area/department receiving the visitor is also responsible for keeping visitor logs of all non–Monmouth University community members such as delivery persons, maintenance and repair persons, prospective students and families, or others who are entering any building of the University. These logs should be stored in digital format wherever practicable. Information Management will provide assistance in meeting this requirement to include digitization of paper logs and/or software implementation such as EMS Room Management system. Visitor logs will be made available to contact tracers. 

Major Events 

Planned campus events and activities are subject to the prevailing public health guidance. As such, it is unlikely that in-person, large-scale events such as Homecoming, the Career Fair, and Family Weekend will go on as scheduled this fall. However, the University will make final determinations on if or how these activities will take place as their scheduled dates draw nearer. Announcements of those final decisions will be forthcoming. 

Athletics Events 

Monmouth University has cancelled all fall athletics contests.

The University’s plans and protocols are subject to change in response to evolving guidance from local, state, and federal government and public health officials. We will continue to update this website regularly and encourage you to check back often for the most up-to-date information.
