Subject: Process for Granting Permission for Visitors to Enter Stevens Campus and Leased Properties

In order to promote a safer, healthier and less dense campus environment, the Stevens campus and leased properties will remain closed until further notice and only Stevens students, faculty, staff, and approved visitors and vendors will be allowed to visit. The University recognizes that there is a need for visitors to come to campus to conduct essential business that cannot be conducted remotely and for prospective students and their families to tour the campus as part of their college selection process.

Visitors and guests must be granted permission to visit Stevens on a particular date and time by a Stevens faculty or staff member. Students may not grant permission for individuals to visit. We ask faculty and staff members to carefully consider the need for in-person meetings and only invite visitors with a legitimate business purpose. To help de-densify the campus, please do not invite friends, family members or other visitors to campus whose presence is not required or essential at this time.

When granting permission, the faculty or staff member must submit an online form 24 hours prior to the planned visit and provide all required contact information for each visitor. You must use your Stevens credentials to access, complete and submit the on-line form available here. When the form is submitted, an email will be sent to each visitor granting permission for the visit and providing information regarding the health and safety precautions that must be taken before, during and after the visit. The visitor will be required to have this email available when visiting. The employee granting permission and their supervisor will also receive a copy of the email sent to the visitor. 

While most undergraduate and graduate recruitment activities will continue to be offered virtually throughout the fall semester, in mid-August, as part of our phased reopening plan, Stevens plans to provide in-person, socially distanced tours of the campus. Prospective undergraduate students and families will be notified when in-person tours will begin and will be required to register through the Undergraduate Admissions Campus Visit portal. Each registered visitor will receive an email granting permission to visit the campus on a specific date, time and location and must bring this email with them. Visitors will also receive detailed information about the required health and safety precautions that must be taken before, during and after their visit. To promote social distancing, we cannot accommodate walk-in visitors or those without a reservation.

Visitors who are unable or unwilling to follow Stevens’ required health and safety precautions may access the campus and our faculty, staff and students remotely. 

If you have questions, please contact the Office of University Events at extension 5111 or email [email protected] 

Thank you for your cooperation as we take these precautions to promote a safe and healthy campus.
