Due to the dynamic nature of COVID-19, this policy is subject to change. Please check frequently for updates.
Campus is Closed through May 31
In accordance with New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu's modified stay-at-home order extended through May 31, campus will remain closed to all employees unless otherwise instructed by a supervisor. Students who were scheduled to move out of their residence halls between May 4-18 are highly encouraged to change their appointment until June 1-15. Students who need to retrieve belongings that they deem “essential for everyday needs,” as outlined in the executive order, and choose to move out on their originally scheduled date/time, may do so. Students who are approved to remain on campus for extended emergency housing will still have access to "grab and go" meals from the dining hall, but will not be permitted entrance into other campus buildings aside from Lawson Hall. Campus remains closed to all other students, employees and campus guests until the governor’s stay-at-home order has been lifted.
Travel Policy for Students Staying on Campus
In accordance with the New Hampshire governor’s stay-at-home order, unnecessary travel around our communities is prohibited. As an important reminder, all students who have decided to stay on campus must follow the following protocol:
- Students staying on campus should only travel off campus for essential reasons such as to the grocery store, pharmacy, or to an important doctor’s appointments.
- Students will not be permitted to return to campus if they take overnight trips or trips outside New Hampshire.
- Students who do not follow these guidelines will jeopardize their emergency on-campus housing.
Colby-Sawyer supported international and domestic travel remains prohibited for faculty and staff at this time. Personal travel, including domestic travel outside of New Hampshire is strongly discouraged due to possible self-quarantine requirements upon arrival at your destination, following your return home, or both.
