Royals Safe Together

University Events & Meetings

Events on Campus

  • Because of increased social distancing in classrooms, the University has prioritized the use of all campus facilities to support student instruction and other essential needs. As a result, in-person, indoor campus events are prohibited in the fall semester with the exception of events that are core to the University’s mission, such as liturgy, admissions and Commencement.
  • Academic, social, spiritual and developmental events for the campus community can take place in exterior spaces so long as social distancing guidelines are strictly followed.

Virtual Events

  • Virtual events can be scheduled using Zoom.
  • For University-sponsored events with over 300 participants, a Zoom webinar license can be obtained from Information Technology.
    • The use of a Zoom webinar will include training and rehearsal with the professional assistance of the Information Technology staff.
    • Events requiring Information Technology support must be requested at least two weeks in advance using a Request for Event Technology Support in the Royal IT Support of the My.Scranton portal.

University Meetings

  • In order to encourage social distancing and to preserve campus space for mission-critical functions, in-person meetings, including committee and departmental gatherings, are strongly discouraged throughout the fall semester.
  • Meetings should take place virtually – e.g. teleconference for small meetings of 2-3 people and Zoom for larger gatherings.
