When the College is open, typically from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM on weekdays, contact either a direct campus office, or if you are unsure who to contact, call the Division of Campus Life Office at 718-390-3423.

Community Health Expectations - COVID-19

As part of the Wagner College community, we rely on one another to personally take steps to ensure our health and safety on and off campus. We require all community members to agree and abide by the following requirements and expectations to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Please be advised that these expectations may evolve and can be adjusted by the College as circumstances change.

I pledge to take responsibility as a Wagner College community member to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 and other infections for my own health and the health of others. As a community member, I agree to:

Be Safe
● Wear a face covering any time I am indoors – excluding my assigned residence hall room/suite/apartment – including but not limited to hallways, bathrooms, academic spaces, study/lounge spaces, and dining facilities, and any time I am outdoors and cannot maintain six feet of social distance.
● Self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and complete the daily symptom checking app; abide by guidance from Health and Wellness when seeking medical attention.

Be Considerate
● Remain mindful of community members that may be immunocompromised or live with others who are.
● Stay positive, attentive, and helpful to anyone who may need support.

Be Smart
● Wash hands frequently with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer.
● Disinfect your work space, personal items, and living space regularly; limit sharing items.
● Review each day’s schedule, plan ahead, and limit unnecessary travel.

Be Respectful
● Practice a minimum of six feet for social distancing where possible and be aware of others’ personal boundaries.
● Abide by all event and gathering restrictions as identified by the College and/or state or federal governments.
● Stay home if you feel ill or after exposure to someone who is ill or has tested positive for COVID-19.
● Wear a face covering when in public spaces. You may feel great, but others around you could be vulnerable to the virus.

Be Together
● Maintain connections through virtual tools.
● Practice good personal hygiene.
● Remind others to do their part.

I understand that due to ongoing changes in guidance and infection rates, the College may institute different or additional COVID-19 related limitations, restrictions or policies. I agree to comply with any and all additional or different restrictions as they are implemented.

I understand that if I fail to adhere to any of the foregoing safety measures I may be subject to consequences that include but are not limited to: warnings, loss of specific campus privileges, housing reassignment, loss of the privilege to live in College housing, or loss of permission to be on campus. Depending on how severe and/or pervasive the violation is, I may be sent home for the first violation or any combination of violations. In certain cases, violations may also result in formal disciplinary proceedings that may result in sanctions up to and including suspension or expulsion.
