    Events and Travel

  • Can others come to campus?

    In general, visitors should avoid coming to campus. Campus community members must show their WFU ID or authorized parking hangtag at the Reynolda Road and University Parkway entrances. Visitors will need to request entrance at the gatehouses located at those entrances. Buildings will be accessible only by card access. Please see the Visitor/Campus Access Guidelines.


  • Can sponsored research (grant) funds be used to pay for PPE?

    If PPE is required in order to perform the objectives related to the research project then grant funds can be used. If the PPE is needed now to protect against the spread of COVID-19 then other funds should be used to purchase PPE. Contact EHS to see if university funds are available.
