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 throughout the fall. If you can't find the answer to your question, please submit a question or email returntocampus@mail.wvu.edu.

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

While WVU is unable to offer on-campus events this semester, the Visitors Centers are currently taking reservations for limited campus tours though, availability is extremely limited. We encourage only students who plan on attending WVU for the Spring 2021 or Fall 2021 term to visit. Registrations can be made in advance.

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.
