Salve Regina’s campus has formally reopened for new student move-in. Week of Welcome will begin Thursday, Sept. 3, with classes starting Wednesday, Sept. 9. As a result, many campus facilities are set to resume their regular hours of operation, often with new policies and procedures in place.

As always, general comments, questions or concerns regarding Salve Regina’s pandemic response and reopening plan may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or (401) 341-2329.
Face coverings, access to buildings with Salve Regina ID
Salve Regina employees and students must wear a mask or face covering while inside campus buildings and outdoors on campus in close proximity to others. This includes all common areas, hallways, lobbies, bathrooms, entranceways and exits. It does not apply to private office spaces or residence hall rooms where employees or students are alone.
In accordance with Salve Regina’s pandemic illness plan, only current students, faculty and staff may access University buildings at this time. All members of the University community should carry their Salve Regina ID at all times in order to access academic and administrative buildings. Exceptions to this policy may apply to previously authorized vendors after proper verbal health screenings have been conducted.

Textbooks for the fall 2020 semester are available to rent or purchase in digital or printed format from the bookstore website. Orders can be shipped to your home or held at the bookstore to be picked up when you arrive for the fall semester. Students are encouraged to have orders shipped to their home to reduce contact and crowd size in the bookstore at the start of the semester.
Students are also encouraged to consider rental or digital options to help lower the cost of textbooks. You may highlight and make notes in both used and new rented textbooks. You may also convert a rented textbook to a purchase any time during the semester by paying the difference between the rental and purchase price.
