Campus Access for Research and Education

Access to campus for research and education is now being considered on a case-by-case basis, and is subject to approval by the dean and the Vice Provost for Research.

If you or your team need to return to campus for research or educational purposes, please contact the SCS Research Continuity team.

See SCS Research Project On Campus Restart Process for SCS-specific guidance.

To submit your request for access to campus, please visit CMU's Research Status page for guidance and complete a Return to On-site Research Plan.


Return to Campus

Presently, all work – including events – that can be conducted remotely must continue to be conducted remotely. We expect that this guidance will continue through fall, and will update this space as further guidance becomes available. See CMU's Returning to Campus website for more information.

Anyone returning to on-site work must first receive university approval.

A similar process will be created for staff whose work does not fall into teaching or research categories, and we will communicate that process when it is available.
