Approved projects are returning to their CMU locations while complying with university-wide minimum requirements. All other researchers are continuing to operate remotely until authorized to return to CMU facilities.
Working at CMU
The majority of departments and units across the university are currently working remotely. As future business needs dictate, the university has created plans for select units/employees to return to campus under strict guidance.
Campus Services Operating Hours
Most campus services are available remotely and/or in person with modified operating hours. Visit the Campus Services Operating Hours page for contact information and details for various departments across campus.
Seating arrangements in open areas across campus are repositioned to allow for at least 6 feet of distance. Campus buildings are operating at approximately 50% capacity (or less) to reduce exposure and high-touch, high-traffic areas are cleaned consistently throughout the day.
