Campus Safety Requirements

To protect all students, faculty and staff, UC San Diego has developed enhanced safety requirements for individuals arriving, working and living on all UC San Diego campuses, properties and locations. Policies focused on mandatory face masks, social distancing and daily symptom screening have been implemented and will be continuously reevaluated.

Social Distancing

Maintain social distancing. Limit one person per elevator
  • Social distancing of six feet or more shall be maintained in all areas. Where possible, seating will be repositioned to address the required six feet separations.
  • Campus community members must abide by signage indicating entrance and exits for classrooms, teaching labs and lecture halls to avoid pinch points.
  • Classroom seating distances will be identified, providing appropriate physical spacing for the given room but not less than six feet around each seat.
  • Elevator use is restricted to one person per car at any given time.
  • In buildings that meet the required fire life safety code, stairwells will be unidirectional to promote physical distancing. In case of emergency, all stairwells will flow towards the nearest building exit. 
  • Classes, study groups, and all activities that can be conducted outdoors, weather permitting, is recommended while wearing face mask and maintaining physical distancing.
  • Public areas (lobbies, meeting rooms, study rooms, laundry rooms, restrooms, etc.) and high-touch areas (door handles, elevator buttons, etc.) will be disinfected frequently. Hand sanitizer will be available at various entry points, dining facilities, study and other public areas.
