Covid-19 Safety Protocols Visit


Guest Protocols for In-person Campus Tour

  • Most buildings on campus are closed to the public due to COVID-related precautions and preparations, therefore, the campus tour will be conducted mostly outside.
  • Visitors will see the inside of select facilities only while on campus tour. The University is taking extra precaution to ensure the wellness of faculty, staff, and students at this time.  
  • All those registered for the tour, must measure their temperature on the tour date prior to arriving on campus.
  • Temperature readings of 100.0F or greater, will require you and your guests to cancel your scheduled visit.
  • Please call our office at (603) 862-1360 to cancel.
  • You may reschedule your visit once symptoms subside and if you can respond ‘no’ to all the health screening questions.
  • Water bottle because refreshments will not be available.
  • Dress accordingly for the weather and bring an umbrella or raincoat if needed.
  • A mask that covers your mouth and nose to wear while inside buildings for your tour.
  • Tours are offered rain or shine. Please check the weather prior to your arrival and plan accordingly. Umbrellas will not be provided, in case of rain, to prevent sharing equipment. We will do our best to seek cover during the tour. However, it is best to be be prepared as a majority of the tour will be outdoors and uncovered.
  • Tours will not be offered if the University curtails (cancels) operations. We suggest calling the UNH Storm Line at (603) 862-0000 to verify the University is open should weather conditions be questionable. We will contact all those registered for tours by email and text should the University curtail operations.
  • Tour groups will be capped at 1 tour guide per 20 registered guests maximum. There will be three tour groups out at a time.
  • Registrants cannot bring more guests than the number they indicated when registering for the tour.
  • We will not be able to accommodate additional visitors or walk-ins if the tour capacity has been reached. Visitors will be asked to do a self-guided walking tour instead. 
  • All visitors will be asked to answer a short health screening during check-in. If you answer affirmatively to any of the screening questions, you cannot participate in the campus tour program as your participation may put others at risk.
  • Admissions Tour Guides will be equipped with a microphone and speaker to ensure they are audible while on tour.  
  • UNH employees and visitors will always wear a mask while inside buildings and observe social distancing by remaining at least 6 feet apart while in Durham on University grounds. 
  • UNH faculty, staff and students are tested at least once a week for COVID and must have a negative test result to be on campus. Those with proof of vaccination can be exempt from our COVID testing program.
  • Should the Admissions Office have any suspected exposure, we will close our office temporarily for a deep cleaning prior to reopening. Any tours scheduled for that day will be cancelled.
  • All visitors, staff, and students must wear masks that fully cover their mouth and nose when entering buildings on campus.
  • Visitors will only have access to restrooms upon arrival on campus or after the tour in specific buildings. Please refer to your confirmation email for details.
  • We encourage visitors, staff, and students to wash their hands frequently or sanitize them.

Visitors will be verbally asked to attest (acknowledge or certify) the following. Those who respond ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, will be asked to reschedule their visit and not walk around campus:
