COVID-19 Guidelines

SCPS reserves the right to cancel or postpone any event due to health and safety concerns and University COVID-19 pauses.

Entrances and Exits

To support traffic flow and monitor capacity throughout Schine Student Center, the accessible entrances located on Waverly Avenue and the Einhorn Family Walk will be the designated entranceways to access the building. All other doorways will be exits only. To help with traffic, it is recommended that you use the Einhorn Family Walk entrance for convenient access to dining options and the Campus Store. Signage at the Waverly entrance, as well as stairways and an elevator, can help direct you to other spaces in the building.

Food, Beverages and Catering

No food and beverages are permitted in Student Center spaces except in designated dining and café areas. At certain times, even dining space may be grab and go.

When eating in designated areas, remember to maintain social distance and limit your time without your mask properly displayed. Mask use is still required when in dining spaces if not eating.

Catering services are not permitted for the spring 2021 semester.

Building Access and Guests

The Schine and Goldstein Student Centers (Student Centers) are spaces designed for students, faculty and staff to gather in an atmosphere conducive to social, leisure, and educational purposes. Due to COVID-19 protocols, non-SU/SUNY-ESF students, faculty or staff, including minors, are not permitted in Student Center spaces for the spring 2021 semester without express permission.

The Student Centers give priority to Syracuse University students, faculty and staff. Users with valid Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF I.D. cards may use the facility during all operating hours.

Only SU and SUNY-ESF students, faculty, and staff may be present in the Schine Student Center after 8 p.m. or before 7:30 a.m., unless express permission is given by SCPS.

Any building occupant must provide proof of identification and/or affiliation when asked by any University official.

Building Use

Use of spaces should be limited to no more than two hours. This will allow for more students to have access to the building.

Seating and occupancy limits should be followed at all times. Only congregate in spaces designated for seating. Keep all pathways (tiled areas) clear so that people may safely pass through the building.

If occupancy limits are met, entrance into spaces and rooms may be suspended for a limited time. We ask for your cooperation if you are asked to return to the building or a particular space at a later time to allow for the building capacity to remain at recommended levels.

Those who do not comply with the health and safety protocols may lose building privileges.

Visitors to office spaces must comply with all visitor management guidance provided upon entrance to those spaces.

Tabling

Protocols related to tabling will be implemented in compliance with recommendations from the Public Health Committee and social distancing expectations.

Tabling reservations will be adjusted to reflect current state and public health guidelines and are subject to change as regulations revise. This could happen at any time and may change after your table has been approved.
