Covid-19 Safety Protocols Visit

 

Guest Protocols for In-person Campus Tour and Programs

  • Please review the health screening questions to ensure you can safely visit
  • Access to buildings may change or vary slightly as needed, but most tours will enter the Hamel Recreation Center, the Memorial Union Building (student center), Dimond Library, and an academic building.
  • Please review the information on this website. University guidelines and COVID updates are available here
  • Please call our office at (603) 862-1360 to cancel your visit should you feel it is best to visit another day due to feeling unwell.
  • You may reschedule your visit once symptoms subside.
  • We strongly recommend visitors be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 72 hours before visiting campus. 
  • Water bottle because refreshments will not be available.
  • Dress accordingly for the weather and bring an umbrella or raincoat if needed.
  • Complimentary masks are available in the Admissions Office.
  • Tours are offered rain or shine. Please check the weather prior to your arrival and plan accordingly. We will do our best to seek cover during the tour. However, it is best to be prepared as most 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.
  • Detailed information regarding university wide COVID-19 updates, safety guidelines and testing is available here.
  • While masks are not required, we encourage you to wear a mask when participating in indoor sessions unless you are actively eating or drinking.
  • There is no mask requirement outdoors, however, we highly recommend unvaccinated people wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or during activities (such as the tour) where there is sustained close contact with others.
  • To allow space for other prospective and admitted students to visit, registrants cannot bring more guests than the number they indicated when registering for programs.
  • We will not be able to accommodate additional visitors or walk-ins if the tour capacity has been reached. Visitors will be encouraged to do a self-guided walking tour instead. 
  • All visitors must review the health screening questions in the section seen below, prior to their visit. Those who can answer affirmatively to any of the questions are encouraged to cancel their visit and plan to come another day once symptoms subside or circumstances change.
  • For public health and safety, we strongly recommend that all visitors be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 72 hours of their campus visit. Vaccination cards and tests will not be checked upon arrival. We trust our visitors will do due diligence to ensure they can safely visit.
  • Admissions Tour Guides will be equipped with a microphone and speaker to ensure they are audible while on tour.
  • UNH faculty, staff, and students have the option of being tested regularly for COVID and must test when symptomatic.
  • Should the Admissions Office have any suspected exposure, we will close our office temporarily for a deep cleaning prior to reopening. Any programs scheduled for that day will be cancelled. 
  • We encourage visitors, staff, and students to wash their hands frequently or sanitize them.

We ask all visitors to attest (acknowledge or certify) the following prior to visiting campus. Those who can respond ‘yes’ to any of the following questions, are encouraged to reschedule their visit and not walk around campus:

    • For all programs but especially large ones such as the Open house and Admitted Student Visit Days, we strongly recommend visitors be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test within 72 hours before visiting campus.
    • Ask visitors to reschedule their visit and depart campus if they are experiencing symptoms outlined in the health screening questions referenced above.
    • Unless specified, all events will have a maximum of 2 guests per registrant.
  • Preventative measures to minimize the risk of exposure are in place, however, by registering for our in-person visits, registrants and their guests accept the risk and release the university from liability.
  • By visiting campus, even if not associated with an event registration, visitors are assuming the risk of exposure.
