Visits & Events

We are pleased to welcome visitors to Chatham University for safe and socially distant campus visits and tours. 

For Out-of-State Visitors

As of Friday, November 20, by an Order of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health, anyone who visits Pennsylvania from another state must have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth. 

Proof of a negative test must be sent via email to undergraduate@chatham.edu prior to arrival on campus in order for visit confirmation to take place, and must be received at least 1 hour prior to visit start. If test results cannot be provided, the visit must be moved to virtual. 

If someone cannot get a test or chooses not to, they must quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Pennsylvania. This directive does not apply to people who commute to and from another state for work or medical treatment. Learn more.


Campus Visitor Requirements

Whether taking a tour or meeting someone on campus, we take the health and safety of our visitors very seriously, and we ask that all visitors adhere to these protocols and requirements.

  • All meetings or visits require an appointment
  • All visitors will need to receive a health screening  (via ChathamU app or in-person). 
  • A mask or face covering is required inside and outside (when physical distancing not possible). 
  • Physical distancing of at least six feet apart from others must be followed.

Visit our campus health protocols web page to review all the details. 


Campus Events

On-campus events with public (non-Chatham community) attendance will not be allowed from June 2020 through March 2021. 

Student and academic on-campus events with no outside public attendance are permitted as long as they follow campus health & safety protocols, group event attendance limits (Chatham, state or county requirements) and record attendance. 

Wherever possible, recorded or real-time virtual attendance options will also be provided for those who cannot attend in person.

Additional guidelines and protocols for campus social events are below.

  • Social event spaces will be chosen according to reduced event occupancy guidelines to ensure that the room chosen can accommodate guests with social distancing.
  • Chatham and Allegheny County guidelines limit indoor and outdoor social event attendance/size.
  • Attendees must check in via an app (such as ChathamU or Slate), online form, or sign-in sheet.
  • Masks must always be worn in indoor events. Masks must also be worn at outdoor events when physical distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible.  
  • Event seating and lay-outs options are designed to ensure physical distancing.  
  • Given the current County and State mask guidelines, catering will not be permitted at indoor events in order to ensure that masks are worn at all times.
  • Event staff and guests are encouraged to utilize the sanitation stations located in each building to sanitize high touch areas before and during events.  

Additional guidelines for staff and faculty on planning on-campus and virtual events can be found on the Special Events page of myChatham.
