Health and Safety

We expect that members of the Carroll University community — students, faculty and staff — act in consideration of the overall safety and wellbeing of all. All students are prohibited, as articulated in the Student Handbook, from creating a health and safety hazard that would put the Carroll community at risk. Those that demonstrate a hazard on campus grounds may be asked to leave campus grounds or campus housing. Students are required to comply with health and safety laws, orders, ordinances, regulations and health and safety guidance adopted by Carroll University.

Face Coverings / Masks

  1. Carroll University does not require face covering/masks in most outdoor spaces when 6 feet of distance can be maintained. Face coverings/masks are required indoors when others are present, in shared vehicles, and at large outdoor events; outdoor events at which masks will be required will be designated “Masks Required” ahead of time. Those who prefer to wear masks outdoors may continue to do so.
  2. Face coverings/masks must be worn in Residence Hall, Apartment and Suite common areas including lobbies, lounges, kitchens (when not dining), hallways, elevators and common area bathrooms, with the exception of shower use, brushing teeth or utilizing restroom stall.
