What's Open On Campus

Students walking to the Memorial Union

Campus is open, but not like it would be in a typical academic year. This page provides information about what’s open on campus and what’s closed, as well as building- and site-specific access instructions. Check back often.

We recommend students limit the frequency of coming to campus only when you have a specific need, such as attending an in-person class, going to your on-campus job, seeking medical services or testing, visiting the grab-and-go food pantry, conducting essential in-person research, or if you live in on-campus housing.

Aggie Public Health Ambassadors are available to answer any questions you may have about campus protocols and building access.

Before You Go

  • Complete the Symptom Survey - It's fast. It's easy. It's private. The survey is required for students and employees to go on campus, in buildings and to get COVID-19 tests.
  • Grab your face covering and hand sanitizer - Face coverings must be worn by students, academics, staff and visitors at all UC Davis locations. For indoor locations, the only exceptions are while eating or drinking or in private spaces such as dorm rooms, single-occupancy offices, showers and the like. For outdoor spaces, face covering should be worn when maintaining 6 feet / 2 meters of distance from others is not feasible.
  • Remember to maintain physical distance and stay 6 feet / 2 meters apart.
