To promote the safety of our community, access to campus is currently limited to approved students, employees, and essential visitors. A visitor is defined as any individual coming to campus who is not a Knox College employee or current student. Essential visitors may include the following:
- Contractors, Vendors, and Other Essential Partners. Decisions regarding campus visits by contractors, vendors, and other partners must be approved by the appropriate vice president at least 48 hours in advance of the visit (excepting emergencies). Visitors in this category must check in with Human Resources at the Administrative Services Building upon arrival to campus and follow visitor protocols. (This does not include UPS, FedEx, and other delivery services that have their own no-contact protocols in place.) Contact the Human Resources Office at email@example.com.
- Prospective Students and their Families, Including Recruited Athletes. The Office of Admission is offering limited, modified on-campus visits by appointment only. Visitors must check in with Admission at Alumni Hall upon arrival to campus and follow visitor protocols. Schedule you visit online or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
- Family Members Assisting Students. Students residing on campus may have limited family members visit for a defined period of time. Family visitors must be approved by the Campus Life Office at least 48 hours in advance of the visit and must check in with Campus Safety at the Administrative Services Building upon arrival to campus and follow visitor protocols. Contact Campus Life at email@example.com with any questions.
Students and their families who are retrieving their belongings from housing are permitted on campus under the current move-out protocol until July 15. Questions regarding retrieving belongings can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All guests not listed in the above categories are considered non-essential visitors and we ask that they refrain from visiting campus at this time. Rare exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and will be determined by the appropriate vice president (for employees) or the Vice President for Student Development (for students). Urgent requests may be communicated by phone to Campus Safety at 309-341-7979.
Guest use of on-campus facilities, including the Library and fitness facilities, are closed to members of the greater Galesburg community at this time. The registration of third-party and external events has been suspended until further notice.
