Return to Tech

Latest Information

Face coverings will be required in all classrooms, labs, indoor public spaces, shared office space, elevators, stairwells, on-campus events and gatherings where distancing is difficult, and all places and times where physical distancing is not possible.

Face coverings are encouraged, but not required, in residence hall rooms, enclosed single-person offices, enclosed single-person study spaces, and outdoor settings where distancing can be managed.

These instructions are consistent with the current COVID-19 national, state and local guidelines. Instructions may change if those guidelines change.

Students requesting accommodations should contact the Accessible Education Center at 372-6119. Faculty and staff requesting accommodations should contact Human Resources at 372-3034.

In May, we announced that Tech would start a phased return to campus throughout June, culminating with the return to Tech on July 6 in order to prepare campus for summer orientation sessions that start on July 13, student move-in to the residence halls, and the start of fall semester on Monday, Aug. 24.

As we said in that message, many faculty and staff members have been working on plans with the goal of safely returning students, faculty and staff to campus. The health and safety of the Tech community remains the top priority during this process.

While Tech’s working groups continue to develop recommendations, this FAQ provides the latest information and will be continuously updated as new information becomes available.
