Building Hours and Access

The Rita Anne Rollins and Candler School of Theology buildings are open with reduced hours and access for approved students, faculty, and staff. All students, faculty, and staff who plan to be on campus for any amount of time are required to complete an onboarding process, and are expected to adhere to Emory’s health and safety guidelines as outlined in the Emory Community Compact, including (but not limited to) wearing face coverings/masks positioned over nose and mouth, observing appropriate physical distancing, testing, health screenings, and self-monitoring.

In accordance with Emory University's campus safety guidelines, visitors not affiliated with Emory do not have campus access at this time; this decision will be revisited once COVID-19 conditions improve in Atlanta.
