Visiting Campus

Campus visitors must abide by Cornell’s travel and visitor policy (PDF), which significantly restricts visits by individuals not part of the residential Cornell community, at least through May 15, 2021. With few exceptions, campus visitors are prohibited from entering any campus facility. Only approved current students, staff or faculty, essential vendors (such as food and delivery workers or construction and service providers), or individuals approved, in writing, by the provost or appropriate dean, vice president or their delegate, may access campus facilities.

Walking around Cornell’s campus, including the Botanic Gardens, is permitted. However, all employees, students and visitors are required to have a mask on their person when outdoors on campus and to put on their face covering or mask when it is NOT feasible to maintain physical distancing measures (i.e., at least six feet of separation between others).
