We can’t wait to welcome you to Pace! Currently, Pace is closed to visitors, however, once visitors are permitted on campus, all visitors must enter through designated areas. If you are planning to be on any of our campuses, please read below for the information you need to ensure your safety and that of our Pace Community.

Once the University opens for visits, we require that all visitors wear appropriate face covering while on campus. Appropriate use of face coverings is critical in minimizing the risk of transmission to others near you. Remember, a face covering is not a substitute for social distancing. Face coverings must be worn at all times, especially in common areas or when social distancing cannot be maintained. In general, N95 respirators and medical grade masks are reserved for health care workers. For more information about face coverings, please see our Campus Health and Safety page.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends that people remain a minimum of six feet apart. Once visitors are allowed on campus, we require that in addition to wearing face coverings, you follow all posted signage and work to maintain appropriate social distance. For more information about social distancing expectations, please see our Campus Health and Safety page.
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 onto campus for events such as lectures, conferences, or athletics events, Safety and Security shall be responsible for monitoring/enforcing the capacity limits and other proper protocols, such as social distancing.
- Safety and Security will ask all visitors prior to entry to complete an online screening questionnaire, that includes questions such as:
- In the last 14 days, have you had any COVID-19 symptoms?
- In the last 14 days, have you tested positive for COVID-19?
- In the last 14 days have you been in close contact with anyone that has tested positive for, or has or had symptoms of, COVID-19?
For the safety of our community, in-person admissions-related visits to campus—including tours, info sessions, and admitted student events—are canceled through June 30. We can’t wait to show you our campuses in-person, but for the time being, you’re invited to attend a virtual tour or info session. For more information about admissions, campus tours, virtual events and info sessions, check out our Staying Connected to Pace page.
- Pace will work with local public health authorities to determine whether or to what extent it may host athletic events, practices, and trainings. Social distancing guidelines will continue to apply to athletic facilities including stadiums, training rooms, and locker rooms.
- Where events are allowed, attendance restrictions will likely limit participation and seating arrangements may require modification.
- Recreation and fitness facilities will follow local, state, and federal recommendation and is expected to be in line with re-opening protocols for commercial fitness centers.
Any construction or renovation projects taking place at Pace, or scheduled to take place in the future, will be done in accordance with all state and federal guidance for construction projects. Much like the mobile screening app used by students, staff, and faculty, all contractors will be required to complete a similar screening prior to arriving on campus every day.
- Pace requires that the general contractor for all projects maintain a daily log, which identifies each individual that was on campus and verifies the completion of the necessary screening. Additionally, Pace will mandate that the general contractor is responsible for proper cleaning and sanitization of areas utilized by contractors throughout the day. All project meetings will be held virtually, outside, or in open air spaces to ensure proper social distancing is maintained.
- In addition to any protocols that the contractors may have in place, Pace will provide the contractors a copy of its guidelines, which shall serve as a baseline for compliance by contractors in the event of a positive or suspected case of COVID-19.
- Contractors will be required to notify Pace’s Coronavirus Coordination Officer immediately upon any confirmed case or symptomatic individual and cooperate with Pace regarding communications, contact tracing, cleaning and disinfection, and allowing the individual to return to the work site.
