If You Want to Request Access to Campus
To obtain permission to come to campus, QC members (students, faculty, and staff) must request access from their chairperson, director, dean or vice president. Once permission has been granted, an invitation will be sent to the individual’s email with instructions on how to check in. Anyone who accesses the campus must complete the aforementioned training, CUNY health screening on Everbridge, and the Queens College Access 2020 form (QCA20).
If You Already Have Approval to Access Campus
Plan in advance to minimize time spent on campus. Conduct meetings remotely. Even when hybrid classes have sessions on campus, faculty and staff will NOT provide any in-person advising. Everyone working anywhere on campus must adhere to the NYS Higher Education Research Guidelines. You will be required to show QC or CUNY identification at sign-in with Public Safety at the Main Gate upon arrival to campus, and wear a face mask at all times unless you’re alone in a private office. All faculty, and staff must complete the New York State COVID Back to Work Training (available on Blackboard) prior to their first day back on campus. Research staff must complete campus-specific COVID-19 training as directed. Read additional guidance pertaining to research laboratories, in the Queens College Research Reopening Plan.
Be prepared to make changes on short notice, as dictated by health and safety directives. On-campus instruction and projects will be halted if New York State or New York City issues a second Emergency Order Pause.
If you are approved to come to campus but cannot do so, we ask that you notify the campus by email at QCAccessCampus@qc.cuny.edu
. This is necessary as an extensive cleaning protocol is implemented after each day a space has been occupied.
In the event that you are not able to connect to the QCA20 site, when you arrive at campus you will have your temperature taken via a touchless thermometer and be provided with a device to connect to this mandatory registration system. Hard copies of the QCA20 form will also be available at the Public Safety Main Gate office. In addition, Queens College or CUNY ID must be presented at the time of access and if requested.
General Information for Everyone
Everyone will be required to abide by all campus and building-specific protocols. Individuals are restricted to the buildings they have received authorization to enter (e.g., instructional space, a lab, an office, or the library).
