Campus Expectations

These expectations are effective January 14, 2021, and apply to all students. The intent is to limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep students, faculty, and staff safer. Our community’s health and safety depend on compliance with these standards.

As scientific understanding of the virus increases, it is likely that guidance from public health authorities and directives from the government will change. Please note the following expectations:

  • If a new guidance/policy is more restrictive than what is listed here, all students are expected to immediately comply with the new measures announced.
  • If the new guidance/policy is less restrictive than what is listed here, all students are expected to continue abiding by these measures until the College notifies them they have changed.

College campuses present unique considerations, and Lafayette may deem it necessary to continue restrictions longer than mandated by authorities. Changes to these expectations will be shared via Lafayette Today and updated on this website (


As of August 5, 2021, masks are required inside campus buildings when in shared spaces.

All members of the community must comply with local, state, and federal guidelines and published procedures.

In situations where failure to uphold the expectations outlined above results in a health and safety risk to the community, immediate consequences may result. Immediate consequences include but are not limited to things like fob shutoff, restrictions from campus buildings including the recreation center, and/or revoking access to College applications such as OurCampus or the College portal, etc.

Intentional, significant, or repeated alleged violations of the Pard Pledge may be referred to the disciplinary process, in addition to or in lieu of imposing consequences as described above.

The disciplinary process may result in a range of sanctions, including suspension or even expulsion, in the most serious cases. Additional information on the disciplinary process can be found at An expedited process will remain in place  for alleged violations of the Pard Pledge and/or the COVID Addendum to the Student Handbook.
