Visitors and Guests

[Updated May 27, 2022]

To continue to ensure the health and safety of our campus community, all visitors, guests, and/or spectators are required to follow current New York State health and safety guidelines in place. View Masking on Campus for more information about SUNY Oswego's mask policy (currently "Masking is optional" for fully vaccinated and boosted individuals).

Admissions Visitors / Prospective Student Events: SUNY Oswego will be open for in-person events for interested students and their families to visit our campus. Tours will require pre-registration and walk-in visitors are welcome. Visitors must follow CDC COVID-19 requirements and New York State health and safety guidelines.  Wearing a mask indoors is currently "optional" for fully vaccinated and boosted individuals. 

Visitors/Guests to the Residence Halls:  Daily visitors must check in at the front desk with their host and provide proof of vaccination. Overnight guests must be vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination on their registration form.

Spectator/Ticketed Events: Spectators to indoor campus events must continue to abide by New York State health and safety guidelines in place at the time of the event. Wearing a mask indoors is currently "optional" and a personal choice for fully vaccinated and boosted individuals. Those individuals who are unvaccinated or have not yet received their booster shot are responsible for continuing to wear masks in all settings.   

Effective 3/21/22, SUNY Oswego will remove its SUNY Oswego Indoor Spectator Policy, and no longer require attendees of the aforementioned events to show proof of having completed a full COVID-19 vaccination series or proof of a negative COVID-19 test. This is subject to change or reinstatement at any time depending on evolving metrics and health and safety conditions. 

Indoor/Non-Ticketed Events: Invited speakers to campus, alumni sharing knowledge in the classroom, and other guests coming to campus are strongly encouraged to wear a mask indoors in all public settings.  

Outside Group Using Campus Facilities: It is the outside group / contracting agency's responsibility to abide by all New York State and SUNY Oswego COVID-19 guidelines in place at the time of the event.
