Guidelines for Instructional Spaces

As we navigate a return to the classroom for Fall 2020, 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.
