Campus Reopening
As of September 8, the Institute campus has partially reopened. Faculty and Members, along with a limited number of essential staff, may request access to work in their offices.

We have created a series of Return-to-Campus guides, which feature more in-depth information than shown on the website and should be consulted before coming to campus.

Individuals requesting access to campus must complete the Health Screening Form each morning before coming to campus and must be approved by the IAS Covid-19 Response Team. 

To help ensure the safety of our community, we ask that you continue to wear masks or face coverings in all indoor areas on campus, including the activities center and laundry facility, and where social distancing of 6 feet is not possible.
