After-Hours Access to Selected Academic Facilities (8/20/20)
Dear W&M Students, Faculty & Staff,

As some Arts & Sciences classes begin in-person across campus, this message addresses after-hours access to selected academic facilities.

As of Wednesday, Aug. 19, academic buildings supporting Arts & Sciences are open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. These hours allow for student access for both day and evening classes. To allow for after-hours study, the following facilities will remain open until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday:

  • Tyler Hall
  • Tucker Hall
  • Morton Hall
  • Jones Hall
  • Integrated Science Center (except the third floor)
  • Blow Hall (third floor)
  • McGlothlin-Street Hall

While these facilities will be locked at the times noted above, students may remain in the facilities until midnight if necessary. The William & Mary Police Department will periodically patrol the facilities during this time.

Not all spaces within a building will be available for student use. Classrooms previously scheduled for classes, departmental offices, and paces restricted by departments will not be available for student use.

All university health and safety guidelines apply for after-hours use of these facilities. These include, but are not limited to, at all times wearing a mask that covers both nose and mouth, maximizing physical distancing in all approved locations with no less than six feet when working or seated with another person, and frequent and consistent personal hygiene (hand washing, etc.). Additional guidelines may be posted depending on building-specific requirements.

Access to these spaces brings with it an obligation to sanitize the space when you come in and as you leave. Please bring the necessary wipes with you. This is for your own safety as well as that of others. Food is prohibited throughout these facilities.

Swem Library and the Sadler Center continue to be available as study spaces for students. Please check their respective websites for current operating hours and follow their guide the lines for care and use of space. 

The School of Law, School of Education, and Mason School of Business (Miller Hall) facilities remain closed until one business day before in-person classes resume for each school. Their respective operating hours and availability after-hours will be determined at that time.

The COVID-19 Response Team will evaluate the effectiveness of this approach prior to additional undergraduates arriving around Labor Day weekend. 

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to being Healthy Together,

Sam Jones

Chair, COVID-19 Response Team
