Skidmore College


For the purposes of delineating guidelines as they relate to COVID-19, a visitor is defined as any individual on the Skidmore campus who is not a Skidmore College student, faculty, or staff member. General visitors include individuals on campus for tours, exhibits, events, etc.; athletics spectators; visitors from other colleges; retirees; and any other non-student or non-employee community member. Visitors to offices and workspaces include vendors, contractors, speakers, job candidates, admissions recruits, and other third parties.

Visitor Guidelines

Visitor Guidelines

Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have created a flowchart to help you navigate the current status level and the subsequent guidelines you should take. These guidelines cover masking, participation in events, building access and more. 

Review Visitor Guidelines


We hope you will feel comfortable coming to our campus, as we require all faculty, staff, and students to be vaccinated unless an individual accomodation has been made. Vaccines are not required to visit campus; however, vaccination status may affect how you participate, or your ability to participate, in various activities. Please confer with hosts of events, programs, or tours you plan to attend, or guests you're here to visit. 

Mask wearing

All visitors are required to wear a mask while indoors, regardless of the status level and vaccination status. Unvaccinated individuals are also asked to wear a mask outdoors when social distancing isn't possible. 

Access to campus, buildings, and facilities

Visitors are allowed on campus during yellow and green status levels. However, their ability to participate in events, go indoors, attend gatherings, and more can change. For hours and availability of our various public facilities, it is best to contact those places directly (i.e. the Tang Museum, Scribner Library, Skidmore Athletics, The Surrey-Williamson Inn) as they may evolve during the semester
