Pipers Wear Masks!

Hamline University requires that students, faculty, staff and visitors wear masks in most settings on campus.

Masks must be worn by all students and employees outdoors when unable to sustain at least 6 feet of physical distance from others.

Masks must be worn by all students, employees and guests while indoors in common areas of campus, including hallways, classrooms and labs, offices without private office space allowing for 6 feet of physical distance and shared common areas in all campus buildings including residential facilities.

Department heads should coordinate with Public Safety to obtain masks for staff and faculty. New students and returning residential students will receive masks during check-in. Returning commuter students can pick up masks at the Anderson desk starting on August 27th.

The full policy is linked on the COVID-19 page and on the Hamline University policy site.
