Campus Protocols for Staying Healthy & Safe

Maintaining a healthy and safe campus is a priority, especially in the era of COVID-19. For that reason, the university has enacted protocols for campus members who are on campus. The University of Michigan-Flint Department of Public Safety (DPS) may be contacted for any questions regarding the building’s open or closed status. For building closure(s) due to emergencies or inclement weather, please check the university’s main page.

The protocols are part of a broader initiative across all University of Michigan campuses. Designed using the latest public health information on mitigating the spread of the virus, the protocols require the understanding and cooperation of all of our campus community members. The well-being of the campus community is a shared responsibility by all of us.


Building Hours & MCard Swipe Locations

All academic buildings are open from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. University buildings are available by swipe access with a valid MCard until 10 p.m. All university buildings close at 10 p.m. Please do not remain in any campus building after 10 p.m.

For weekend hours, Thompson Library, UPAV, and other specific use buildings and skywalks, please see campus building hours for more information.

Building hours are times of the day that the building is accessible by the exterior MCard Swipe locations for faculty, staff, and students, and does not require calling the Department of Public Safety to use these entrances. Public access (without a valid MCard) is restricted to only the University Pavilion at this time. Any guests of faculty, staff, or students must complete the guest ResponsibBlue screening before entering a university building.

UM-Flint Face Covering Policy

As of August 11, 2021, UM-Flint will require all individuals to wear face coverings in university buildings beginning Aug. 11 regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings will not be required outdoors on campus. The full policy is available here, with details of limited exceptions, which include actively eating and drinking, while alone with the door closed in an enclosed office, and being in your own residence hall, including common areas. 

As a campus, we are united in our commitment to working with all members of our campus community to continue to put the well-being of the campus at the forefront of all we do. It takes each of us actively working together to do the things we know are based on science that fights the common enemy that is COVID-19. We need your help as we look after one another by taking responsible actions that promote health and safety to protect one another from the spread of the virus.
