Gatherings and Events

Effective as of March 7, 2022, Pace University is restoring event capacity to 100%.

Campus Visitors

  • Please review carefully as Pace University's Visitor Policy has been recently updated. To keep our community healthy, all registered visitors to our campuses must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or provide the negative results of a COVID-19 PCR test administered no more than 72 hours prior to their arrival on campus if they have a medical condition or religious beliefs that prevent vaccination.
    • Upon arrival, all registered guests must present a photo ID and proof that they meet the CDC definition of being fully vaccinated (i.e., two weeks past all recommended doses of a vaccine approved or authorized for emergency use by the FDA or WHO) against COVID-19.
    • If you are not fully vaccinated, you must present a negative test result for a COVID-19 PCR test administered no more than 72 hours prior to arriving on campus.
    • Visitors to the NYC Campus must enter through the main entrance of One Pace Plaza, adjacent to City Hall Park.
    • Visitors to the Westchester Campus must enter through the gate at Entrance 3.
  • In order to reduce density on campus, we are limiting the types of visitors allowed on campus. No visitors, including friends of students, faculty, or staff will be allowed in any campus building, unless they have been pre-approved to attend an on-campus event and have registered in advance, and completed a health screening questionnaire, either prior to or upon arrival to campus. Alumni access will require any government-issued photo ID (PARC members should present their Pace ID), completion of the health screening questionnaire, and proof of vaccination.
  • In the Spring 2022 semester, internal events are for Pace Community members only (faculty, staff, and students). No outside visitors will be permitted to attend so we can prioritize Pace Community involvement and maintain social distancing. Invited guest speakers, performers, and vendors are excluded from this restriction.
  • For external groups renting Pace facilities, all visitors must follow guidance set forth above. Each group must have a designated Pace contact who will review their health screenings and be a point of contact while the group is on campus. Each group will have access only to the space(s) identified for the purpose of their visit. External groups will be required to agree to terms outlined in the Facilities Use Agreement.

Pre-Registration and Screening Process

  • NYC Campus: The person inviting the visitors will register the visitors via the Splan visitor management software. Potential visitors to the NYC Campus will be asked to register through Splan Visitor Management System prior to their visit and complete a health screening questionnaire upon their arrival.
  • Pleasantville and Haub Law campuses: The person inviting the visitor to campus, will send the potential visitor a link to the health screening tool via the Teamworks site.

Contractors and Other Vendors

  • Contractors will be required to follow the guidelines outlined above. Like Pace employees, they must check in each day via the Teamworks or Splan Visitor Management System, and must display their approval to be on campus to security when entering the campus, or when asked.
  • Each contractor must be cleared to enter campus by Pace staff supervising their work.
  • If vendors are called to campus in response to an emergency, the department responsible must notify Security. Security will direct them to complete the screening questionnaire before they will be allowed to proceed to the worksite.

Face Coverings

Masks are required on Pace's NYC Campus and optional in most places on the Pleasantville and Haub Law campuses. We will continue to require masks only in classrooms during classes, on elevators, in healthcare settings, on Pace transportation, and for those who are exempt from our vaccine requirement. We will consider every other space a “mask-friendly” environment, where mask use is welcome and supported for anyone who chooses to wear one and is encouraged when distance cannot be maintained. For more information about face coverings, please see our Campus Health and Safety page.

Campus Safety and Security

Pace is committed to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. To the extent that protocols are not followed by any individual on campus, Pace reserves the right to take disciplinary action against students, faculty, and staff, as well as removing any visitor from the premises. These actions may involve Safety and Security, Student Life, and Human Resources.

  • To the extent that Pace allows outside individuals on campus for events such as lectures, conferences, or athletics events, Safety and Security shall be responsible for monitoring/enforcing face covering requirements.
