Campus Guest/Visitor/Event parking

To minimize the risk of COVID-19 to our community, the UW-Eau Claire campuses are closed to visitors until further notice, with exceptions as outlined in this policy. 

Visitors may be authorized by UWEC department unit director, department chair, dean, UWEC Governance Committee Chair or Executive, or an Executive Staff member.

Visitor Definition and General Principles

For the purposes of this policy, visitors are defined as anyone coming to a UWEC campus, who does not possess a current Blugold ID and/or is not utilizing the daily symptom app mandated on UWEC campuses, and who is entering a building, attending an event, or spending more than an hour on campus property.  Public members passing through the campuses (i.e. running through campus, walking, biking, etc.) who are only on outdoor grounds not associated with an event, and who will be on campus for less than one hour, are not subject defined as visitors by this policy.  

Campus members should minimize guests to campus whenever possible.  If a guest must be invited to campus, effort should be made to minimize the duration of the visit and the number of unique guests coming to campus (i.e. it is better to invite the same expert three times to campus rather than three different experts). 

Masks are required on campus.  Visitors are expected to bring a face mask that covers their nose and mouth and to wear the mask on campus at all times.  One-time use masks are available for visitors who do not have a mask.

Residence Hall Visitors

Students living in the dormitories will follow the UWEC Residence Hall Visitor Policy ADDENDUM.

All visitors to the residence halls must comply with the UWEC All-Campus visitor policy, as well as the UWEC Appropriate Safety Measures policy.

Residence Hall students will be limited to one (1) visitor per resident in their residence hall room at one time in the case of a non-parent, and up to one (1) additional visitor if it is a parent.  A visitor is defined as any person not contracted and assigned to that residence hall room (whether the visitor is a student or non-student.)

Visitors must wear a mask at all times when visiting, except in those instances permitted by the Appropriate Safety Measures policy.  Students are responsible for all behavior of their visitors, as stipulated in the Residence Hall Judicial Code.  Those visitors who do not comply with campus policy will be removed from campus, and the student host may face additional disciplinary action.

Residence hall student hosts must pre-register their guests using the online eForm.  Visitors to residence halls will report first to Towers Hall to complete the Check-In and Pre-screening process.  If allowed on campus, visitor will be provided a Temporary Visitor pass, good for no more than three consecutive days.  Visitors are to be escorted by their host at all times while in the residence halls.

Visitor Center located at 105 Davies Center.
