UAH has modified our various physical spaces for appropriate distancing and safety. Items and actions that were implemented include:

Modified Surroundings

  • Sanitation stations and hand sanitizer in more locations.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols, especially for high-touch surfaces.
  • Preventative equipment, such as plexiglass dividers and covers.
  • Modified layouts of classrooms and communal spaces to provide for required distancing.
  • Signs are posted with COVID-related information.  Additional signs are available for COVID-related information, announcements and warnings. Visit the COVID-19 Signage page or order a sign or download a template.

Housing and Residence Life

  • Housing and Residence Life is preserving students’ residence life in their “home away from home.”
  • COVID-19 requires some changes, such as education, training, enhanced cleaning, staggered move-in, social distancing in common areas – especially building kitchens and laundry rooms, limitations to non-UAH visitors, and provision of PPE for staff.
  • Isolation and quarantine spaces are provided for any residential students who may need them.

Food Services

  • Campus dining maintains distancing to provide for the health and safety of students, staff and faculty.
  • All dining locations, including Charger Cafe, are operating to-go only at this time. For more information, please see our Dining and Meal Plan FAQs.

Modified Actions

  • Gatherings: Virtual meetings and activities are encouraged.
  • Travel: is restricted for employees and must be approved.

Communal Spaces and Waiting Areas

  • Chairs and furniture are rearranged to allow for social distancing.
  • Procedures are in place to reduce shared objects like pens, forms, magazines, and sign-in sheets.
