Guidelines for Instructional Spaces

As we navigate a return to the classroom for Fall and Winter Quarters, the entire Northwestern community will need to make adjustments to stay safe. This section of the website provides additional guidance on specific interventions — space modifications, behaviors, communications, and accommodations — for instructional spaces.  

Behaviors and Expectations

Students and instructors alike will be expected to follow new protocols before, during and after entering instructional spaces. Additionally, COVID-19 safety guidelines will apply.


Space Modifications

The seating capacities for all instructional spaces will be reduced. Learn more about new guidelines, which establish at least of 6 feet of physical distancing between individuals in all directions and demarcate instructor and student zones.
