As classes resume this fall semester, Voiland College and other WSU buildings will remain locked.

Please contact your school/department administrators for door access.

Research labs are required to have approved Return to Research plans. General guidance is available on reopening research facilities (PDF) and conducting human subject research (PDF).

Available student gathering spaces will be limited to the Compton Union Building, the Smith Center, The Spark and University Recreation sites like the Chinook and Student Recreation Center. Those with reservations will be able to access the space(s) using their WSU Cougar Card. Colleges can also request approval to open up spaces for student use, with information on how to do so available on the WSU Risk Management website.

A limited number of General University Classrooms (GUC) are available to use for teaching if faculty would like to teach on campus.  The Spark and Cue will need to be scheduled in advance.  Sloan and EEME GUCs will be locked.

As a reminder, Voiland College is under the directive that if you can work effectively from home, then you should work from home. For those who cannot work effectively from home and who intend on resuming work on campus, there are some important steps to take prior to transitioning.

  1. Notify your supervisor immediately of your intention and your proposed work schedule.
  2. Complete the WSU COVID-19 Safe Return to Work and Disinfecting the Workplace for COVID-19 trainings.
  3. Review the WSU HRS Employee Guide for Returning to a WSU Work Location.
  4. Review Voiland College’s Return to Work Location Distancing and Disinfection Plan.
  5. Complete the VCEA Return to Campus Request Form. Do not return to work at a WSU location until you have received approval from your supervisor.
  6. Faculty, staff, and students must review and implement the Staged Return to On-site Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities guidelines (PDF) and receive written approval from your school director or department head before returning to your campus laboratory.
  7. VCEA personnel teaching face-to-face courses are required to have the course preapproved through the Provost’s Exception Request prior to meeting face to face, and must follow the Provost’s WSU Classrooms and Teaching Labs Distancing and Disinfection Plan for SARS-CoV2 and COVID19 (PDF).
  8. All employees reporting to a WSU work location are to log in to my.WSU and complete the WSU COVID-19 Employee Attestation Form each day the employee is reporting to a WSU work location.
