Dear Dominican Community:

In an effort to adhere with public health guidelines regarding the Coronavirus‎ and to comply with area shelter-in-place orders, Dominican University is significantly reducing on-campus operations and discouraging foot traffic, beginning Friday, March 20 through Friday, April 3. The campus will be closed to the public and access to buildings will be available by door card only. Campus Safety is fully staffed and available to respond to your needs.

In addition to Campus Safety, departments required for the continuation of basic campus operations include Student Life and Residential Life, Office Services (8:30-4:30), dining services (for residential students and essential staff only) and janitorial services -- Personnel in all other departments will be working remotely and online.

While the library is closed, electronic resources are available via the website and reference assistants are working over phone, email, and chat.

IT has equipment for check-out and information will continue to be shared on the Support Center site, which is where you can submit a work order for any support needed.

Academic and personal support‎ services can be accessed through Canvas, and the new Stars Connect team is online.

The university is continually reassessing this fluid situation and will make‎ necessary adjustments after April 3rd. Regular status updates will be provided to the Dominican community.
