Events and visitors

All meetings, events, and social gatherings will follow local, state, federal, and CDC guidelines. This includes any meetings, events, or social gatherings hosted or attended by faculty, staff, students, alumni and visitors/guests of the University.

  • All faculty, staff and student (including student organizations) meetings should take place virtually whenever possible. If a meeting must occur in person, it should be limited to 10 people or fewer and should occur in a space that allows for adherence to physical distancing guidelines.
  • The size of events will be determined by the University and, in part, by the most-recent guidance from local and state officials, regarding the maximum approved gathering size. It’s important to remember that, even when larger gatherings are allowed, adherence to physical distancing guidelines and the use of face coverings is still required.
  • All events must be requested and subsequently approved through the Campus Reservation System at least three weeks in advance to allow for budget approval and proper facilities scheduling and pre- and post-event cleaning.
  • Whenever possible, visitors to campus should be limited. Virtual opportunities for engagement with the University are encouraged.
  • All campus visitors are expected to abide by the guidelines set forth in this document. This includes adherence to the following personal health guidelines:
    • Self-monitoring.
    • Respiratory etiquette.
    • Wearing a face covering
    • Personal hygiene.
    • Staying home when sick.
    • Physical distancing.
  • Visitors on official university business (not including prospective students and families)
    • Official visitors and contracted vendors will be limited and must be registered through the On-Campus Visitor Registry by their identified host that is a member of the University community.
    • The host will be responsible for ensuring that the visitor is aware of and accepts the guidelines and expectations before arrival.
    • All pre-registered visitors to campus must check-in at a designated Visitor Check-In Location upon arrival.
    • If a visitor is sick, he/she must reschedule their visit.
    • Face coverings must be worn at all times. And visitors must abide by the health guideline set forth in this document.
    • Visitors must sanitize their hands upon entering and exiting common areas and/or individual offices.
    • The University has adopted a no-handshaking policy. Please do not be offended, but members of the University community will not be shaking hands during visits.
  • Prospective students and families
    • Prospective students and families who wish to visit campus must be pre-registered or hold an appointment through the Office of Admission. Walk-in visitors are asked to call 215-951-1500, as some same-day visits might be available.
    • All prospective students and accompanying family members will be subject to temperature checks and other health and safety protocols upon check-in of their visit or appointment.
    • Class visits will be scheduled on a case-by-case basis and, if approved, will be limited. Virtual class visits, when available, will be permitted.
    • No large group tours will be conducted this spring. We will revisit this policy at a later date.
  • Visitors and guests in residential living
    • La Salle Residential Communities has implemented a No Guest Policy in place through February 15, 2021.
    • The guest/visitor policy will be reviewed/evaluated after this date and updated as needed.
      • Residential Communities are only permitted to be occupied by the assigned resident of the facility. The No Guest Policy (NGP) includes no visitors between any units, to include rooms, apartments, and townhouses.
      • The only exception to this policy is during the scheduled move-in or move-out process where Residential Students will be permitted a max of 2 guests to assist them for a designated time block.  Face masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times.
    • If students wish to have parents or family visit, they may do so on the main campus in open-air spaces.  Face masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times.
    • Residential students should be aware that it is unlikely that the guest policy will expand to include non-residential student visitors, whether they are commuter students or non-affiliates.
