Campus Safety

Menlo College has engaged an outside consulting team from Stanford University that keeps us abreast of the ever-changing status of COVID-19 and we have made a number of safety enhancements on campus. These include:


To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Menlo has adopted various measures, such as:

  • Setting aside housing for isolation and quarantine
  • Changing our residence hall entrances and exits so there is one central entry and exit point to better control pedestrian flow. Trained COVID-19

Ambassadors also spend portions of their daytime shifts monitoring entrances to ensure only students who live in a specific residence hall are entering.


In conjunction with leading healthcare consultants, Menlo Athletics has adopted rigorous protocols with regard to training, sports medicine, and sports performance as it relates to maintaining student-athlete safety:

  • Daily symptoms screening and temperature checks
  • Medical clearance required for formerly COVID-19 positive students with a gradual return-to-play program

Dining Hall

In conjunction with Sodexo, Dining Hall procedures are continuously being adapted to meet local and state regulatory guidance that may require take-out only or allow for indoor and/or outdoor seating with social distancing measures in place. Students and guests can expect to see:

  • Increased sanitation and disinfection procedures, including hand sanitizing stations throughout the dining facility
  • Added plexiglass barriers where necessary to protect employees and guests, and friendly staff equipped with appropriate PPE
  • Adjustments to seating availability, Dining Hall occupancy, and visible floor traffic patterns to reinforce social distancing 

Visitors to Campus

For everyone’s safety, the Menlo College campus is closed to visitors unless they have scheduled a visit and completed a screening form. In addition to the form, there are detailed protocols that visitors to campus must follow to maintain the health and safety of our community.

For prospective students and their families, we look forward to safely welcoming you to campus for a visit!

For faculty and staff, no uninvited or non-essential visitors are allowed in campus buildings. Essential visitors must follow the same policies (for PPE, quarantining, etc.) as members of the College community.
