Travel/Visitors Common Questions

These questions supplement What You Need to Know: Travel and What You Need to Know: Visitors, where you can find more information.

Questions will be added and updated as information becomes available. If you can't find the answer to your question, please submit a question or email

Are in-person events permitted on campus?

WVU strongly encourages hosting virtual events, programs, activities and gatherings, when possible, for the remainder of the spring semester. If you are considering a limited capacity in-person event, follow the guidance at What to Do If: You're Planning an Event.

Can I still come to campus even though in-person events are canceled?

While large events on campus have been discontinued, we have shifted to virtual delivery for most of our event types and introduced some new opportunities. Students can register for a livestreamed campus tour and we also have special events centered on different topics.

Limited in-person campus tour operations have resumed with priority reserved for high school seniors and their families. Students and families are able to visit campus and use our self-guided tour.

Can I still use in-person resources (Libraries, etc.) even if I don’t have classes on campus?

Yes, but anyone who plans to use any campus facility, resource or service needs to be tested for COVID-19 and receive a negative result prior to physically being on campus.

Does "out of state travel" apply to employees who live out of state?

Anyone traveling domestically outside of West Virginia is subject to a 5-day self-quarantine/self-monitoring period. This does not include commuting to work for employees who live out of state.

How do I arrange for a campus tour?

The WVU Visitors Centers are currently open, but in-person campus tour operations are limited and priority is reserved for high school seniors and their families. Seniors are encouraged to register for a tour through our website. Non-seniors can register for a livestreamed tour of campus. Questions regarding tour availability can be directed to or call 304-293-3489.

How will the University enforce the mandatory mask protocol for contractors and vendors visiting WVU buildings? What can I do if I see them not following the guidelines?

Vendors and contractors are required to follow appropriate guidelines for suppliers. If you witness instances of non-compliance, please contact the Procurement, Contracting and Payment Services team at or 304-293-5711.

If I am designated as a remote employee, will I still be allowed to visit my office on rare occasion without getting tested?

Yes. Remote employees may be on campus for limited periods of time as long as they wear a mask, maintain physical distancing and adhere to safety protocols.

What are the visitation guidelines for students living in residence halls or University Apartments?

Please view the guidelines for visitors to residence halls and University Apartments.

Will students and employees be able to travel?

WVU strongly discourages any student or employee from personal travel to locations other than their home and campus. The University also strongly discourages students and employees from hosting visitors from other locations. Visit What You Need to Know: Travel for current travel guidelines.

Will summer camps be offered?

The University has determined that in-person camps can take place on Morgantown, Beckley and Keyser campuses this summer, though some camps will remain virtual. Camp organizers choosing to host in-person camps will be required to follow guidance provided by local medical experts as well as the CDC and the American Camp Association. Camp organizers considering an in-person camp should email for more information.
