The health and safety of the Loyola University Maryland community, including visitors, is our priority. The following guidance is effective immediately and will be updated as conditions change. Supporting health and safety requires the implementation of special precautions and guidelines affecting visitors to Loyola campuses and facilities.
All visitors to Loyola’s campuses, including contractors and vendors, must comply with all university, city, state, and CDC protocols and guidelines. As of Aug. 9, 2021, city and university policy mandates indoor masking at all times. Visitors who are not vaccinated are expected to follow CDC guidelines, wear face coverings at all times, and not to come to campus if they are sick.
Visitors to campus are invited at the discretion of the vice president of that area and must have authorization to be on campus. Hosts must have visitors provide contact information (name and phone number) and maintain records of visitors for the semester.
Failure to follow these guidelines will result in disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
Residence Hall Guidelines
Residential students are not be permitted to have non-student visitors or guests until further notice (with the exception of move-in). Family members are welcome to visit and not stay overnight in the residence halls for Family Weekend, but they must be masked at all times and follow all University policies. Residence hall room capacity limits are still enforced at this time.
