Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science

Campus Access for Research

Access to campus for research purposes is very limited. No research is to be performed on campus. Access is restricted to individuals on a list maintained by OVPR with a need for brief access relating to activities that:

  • Maintain living organisms/perishable samples
  • Maintain or support systems that enable the ability to do research remotely (e.g., re-booting servers or computers for remote access)

Your department research liaison has the list for your department and is the initial point of request for additions/changes.

Visit CMU's Research Status page for updates on plans for guidance on returning research activities to campus.
