Holy Cross Community Commitment

As members of the Holy Cross community, we commit to the following proactive behaviors in order to protect ourselves, one another, and the health of the community at all times.

Student Compliance

All students returning to campus property in any capacity must comply with the restrictions, requirements, and behavioral expectations the College and state and local authorities are putting in place to promote public health with respect to COVID-19. 

Health and Safety

Find information about testing for employees and students approved to be on campus, contact tracing, and how we're working to keep campus clean during the pandemic.

Masks on Campus

To help prevent inadvertent asymptomatic spread of coronavirus among our community, effective immediately, any individual who enters the Holy Cross campus must wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth at all times, both indoors and outdoors. 

Mandatory ID Policy

For the security and safety of our community, the College requires all faculty, staff and students to wear a visible Holy Cross-issued identification card (“ID”). All faculty, staff, and students are required to wear their ID so that it is easily visible at all times when on campus, unless doing so presents a safety or operational risk.

Study Spaces

A number of classrooms throughout campus have been identified as study spaces. You can find a list of all those spaces, along with their max occupancy limits, here.

Students can use these classrooms for studying or for remote classes. While using these rooms, students must keep masks on, six feet apart and obey the posted capacity limits.
