COVID-19 and Campus Life

Students will be responsible to know and follow all public health protocols set by university, state and county officials (including social distancing and mask requirements, hand washing guidelines, etc.). Student Life will provide each student with information about WWU’s COVID-19 Code of Conduct as well as any sanctioning protocols for conduct that is not allowed. Read the COVID-19 Code of Conduct.


Students will be invited to return to campus in phases, by appointment, starting with the first-time freshmen.
Make a move-in appointment.

Eating on campus

The cafeteria has been reconfigured for distancing and will have dine-in occupancy limits. Menus are being streamlined for easy and safe access to food. Starting fall quarter food services in our campus dining hall will include special serving arrangements, including a mobile app that will allow students to order in advance and pick up their meals in a convenient location where safe traffic-flow protocols can be maintained.

Is the cafeteria currently open? The cafeteria will be closed until fall quarter. Students currently living in the residence halls can charge meals using their I.D. card at The Express grill, which is open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sunday through Friday. If you have questions about meal arrangements, please contact the Office of Student Life at (509) 527-2511.


Classes held in person will be limited in size so that students can maintain 6 feet of physical distance during instruction. Some traffic patterns in campus buildings may be altered to help with distancing, and convenient directional signs will be provided to help. Occupancy limits in our classrooms and public spaces will allow for safe distancing. In some cases, class schedules and locations may be more creative than usual. Special equipment, such as custom plexiglass dividers and high-end microphone/camera/computer technology, is being installed to facilitate safer interactions in our classrooms and study spaces.


The Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC)—the division of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) in which Walla Walla University holds membership—announced on July 17 that it will delay the start of all fall conference sports for 2020. The CCC will look toward conducting delayed seasons for fall sports teams in winter or spring 202. Read the full statement.
