Campus Spaces & Events
While TTUHSC understands the importance in-person classes, meetings and events can play at the university, the health, safety and well-being of the entire TTUHSC community remains a priority.
As circumstances change, this guidance is subject to modification. Additionally, university-sponsored conferences, meetings and events may be cancelled in the interest of campus health and at the discretion of the university; sponsoring parties will be notified in writing of cancellation.
All university-sponsored conferences, meetings and events are subject to the following:
- Effective Monday, August 30, TTUHSC will implement a temporary attendance limitation on indoor and outdoor university-sponsored conferences, meetings, and events, held on or off-campus. Through October 31,these activities will be limited to 25% occupancy or no more than 10 people, whichever is less, while ensuring appropriate physical distancing between individuals. Exceptions for up to 50% of room capacity may be made with written approval from the applicable Vice President, Provost, or Dean if determined to be mission essential to the university. Attendance for academic instruction, residency workshops, and orientation activities will continue at 100% of room capacity. Steps should be taken to ensure physical distancing between individuals as feasible
- Effective Monday, August 30, TTUHSC will implement a temporary requirement regarding the provision of food and beverages. Through October 31, the provision of food and beverages at university-sponsored conferences, meetings, and events is allowed in accordance with respective TTUHSC operating policies. Hosts must also follow occupancy limits and implement steps to ensure physical distancing between individuals. Precautions in regard to the packaging of food and beverages must ensure minimal contact between individuals when serving, such as single-serve or "box" packaging.
- The host/planning department has the responsibilities to ensure appropriate TTUHSC SAFE protocols are followed throughout a meeting or event.
- In adherence to the requirements provided above, outside individuals or groups may be eligible to use TTUHSC premises for functions and events as provided under TTUHSC Operating Policy 61.07, Use of TTUHSC Premises and Amplification Equipment, with approval from the TTUHSC sponsoring department’s applicable dean, provost or vice president.
