In order to keep students and designated employees on campus safe, many facilities will be closed and services will be provided remotely or through limited in-person appointments. Always call or email prior to arriving at a destination. For those services that are open for limited in-person use, plexiglass barriers, technology for ordering, extended vending and sanitation protocols will be in place.
All regular appointments with Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) will be through tele-counseling and can be made by calling 401-454-6637 or emailing email@example.com. Students can also access a crisis counselor 24/7 to support mental health emergencies by calling 401-454-6637.
The Fitness Center will remain closed, but the Center for Student Involvement will provide virtual fitness programming throughout the semester.
Student Health Services will institute a hybrid model of in-person and tele-health services. The daily walk-in clinic will be unavailable and all students must speak with a nurse before coming in. Appointments can be made by calling 401-454-6625. A separate respiratory clinic will be housed in Thompson House for students exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
These and other public-facing facilities will be open and will follow protocols established by the state of Rhode Island for businesses, which include technology for ordering and queuing, sanitation practices, plexiglass barriers and expanded vending options.
