As Whitman College works to protect our students, faculty, staff and community from the continued spread of COVID-19, we are restricting access to many campus buildings. Buildings are open only to authorized employees.

We are slowly reopening buildings on campus for authorized employee access only. No employee should return to work on campus even after their building opens until contacted by Human Resources with a notice that they are authorized to do so and have completed training on Whitman's coronavirus safety policies and procedures. Services, such as the rental shop, bookstore and fitness center, remain closed unless otherwise noted below.
