Resources for the University community
Rowan University is committed to returning as an on-campus living and learning environment for Fall 2020. As always, the health and safety of our Rowan community is our top priority. We have developed and continue to update an extensive reopening plan in compliance with government directives, public health guidance and higher education best practices.

Student Guide for Returning to Rowan

As students return to campus this fall, Rowan University is prepared for a new normal. While none of us know with certainty what lies ahead, we now have a flexible plan in place to guide our way back.

Employee Guide for Returning to Work

The goal of this guidance is to prepare for the return of staff over the next 90 days, while anticipating updates based on changing circumstances, health information and resources. Based on our current knowledge, we can begin to take some action, acknowledging the need for adaptability at every level and every stage.

Monitoring & Testing: Keeping Rowan Safe

Everyday life on Rowan University’s campuses is dynamic, interactive, collaborative and social. While this culture makes possible the transformative experience that is integral to our community, the health and safety of our Rowan community is our top priority. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 threats within and around Rowan, we must change the way we live and work together for the foreseeable future.

Enhanced Cleaning Protocols

In an effort to provide a clean and disinfected learning environment, Rowan’s custodial team has implemented additional cleaning processes to assist in minimizing exposure to viruses and bacteria. Along with the new procedures, several suggestions have been included for occupants of Rowan University to complete to assist in maintaining cleanliness.

Rowan University Travel

Given the uncertainty about when travel will again be safe and when countries will begin lifting current travel restrictions, we share the following guidance for all populations affiliated with Rowan University including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff. This guidance is in place until further notice but please be advised that guidance is changing rapidly as conditions change throughout the country and internationally.

Other Resources
