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, October 18, TTUHSC will modify its temporary attendance limitation on indoor and outdoor university-sponsored
conferences, meetings and events, held on or off-campus. Through December 31, these activities will be limited to 25% occupancy, while ensuring appropriate physical
distancing between individuals. Exceptions for up to 50% occupancy may be granted
with appropriate dean, vice president or provost approval.
Attendance for academic instruction, residency workshops and orientation activities will continue at 100% occupancy. Steps should be taken to ensure physical distancing between individuals.
- Through December 31, providing food and beverages at university-sponsored conferences, meetings and events is allowed under respective TTUHSC operating policies. Event organizers must follow occupancy limits and take precautions when food and beverages are served to ensure minimal contact between individuals, such as providing single-serve “boxed" packaging, plated meals or serviced buffet lines. Self-served buffets are not permitted.
- 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.
