Visitors to Northwestern
See Northwestern University's guidance below on visitors in light of the confirmed appearance of Coronavirus/COVID-19 on campus.
1. My department or unit had plans to host visitors in the coming weeks or months. Should we proceed with our plans to host visitors at this time?
2. Since visitors are now restricted from coming to campus, would a student be considered a visitor?
Students who are enrolled in classes or will enroll in classes at Northwestern are not considered visitors. If a student from another university comes to campus for research or other activities unrelated to a Northwestern class and without being employed by Northwestern, then that student would be considered a visitor and restricted from campus at this time. (Added 4/9/20)
3. For how long will visitors be restricted from coming to campus?
Northwestern is restricting all visitors until further notice. (Added 4/9/20)
