Following the COVID-19 crisis, New York Tech is developing an adaptable, responsive, and comprehensive campus re-engagement plan that follows all requisite national, state, and local guidelines while supporting a best-in-class student experience.
Long Island Reopening
- Students, employees, and visitors must complete an online COVID-19 Health Screen before coming to campus. Students must login to access the Student Health Screen. Anyone else coming to campus should complete the standard Health Screen.
- Security will check Health Screen before allowing anyone access to campus.
- Facial coverings must be worn on campus.
- See updated New York City and Long Island campus maps for Fall 2020
- Plans, as determined by our working groups, include enhanced access requirements and layout changes to meet physical distancing requirements. Facial coverings are required on both campuses.
- Equipment adjustments will allow hands-free operations of entries/facilities and support healthy air quality.
- Disinfection will be conducted frequently via multiple methodologies.
- This fall, we are offering instruction in a variety of modalities. Three of these methods—in-person, blended, and online—are already in use. A fourth, hybrid remote instruction, will use synchronous video conferencing technology, with options for occasional in-person and asynchronous online activities.
- We have made improvements in technology-enabled engagement in our classrooms and in online user experiences, and continue to provide online teaching and learning resources for faculty and students.
- Additional academic considerations for fall include scheduling adjustments and programming revisions to meet blended (in-person and virtual) educational environments.
- Students who plan to be on campus this fall must take a COVID-19 diagnostic test and report results. Details about testing and reporting requirements can be found in our Students FAQ.
- Student life, including student government and clubs, will operate following the same guidelines as academic activities, and will involve a mix of remote, online, and in-person meetings.
- We have identified new housing for our Long Island residents and will inform students about residence hall regulations for both campuses as soon as they become available.
