Class Sizes and Protocols

Class sizes have been designed to maintain at least 6 feet between all students and faculty. In some instances, seats and desks may be blocked off to ensure social distancing.

The capacity of lecture and lab rooms has been determined by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. Deans and department heads should work with Taz Winger to ensure classes meet the proper 6 feet of social distancing. Deans and department heads are responsible for ensuring capacity is not exceeded during the semester. Departments can request “no seat” signs through the Office of Facilities Management. These signs can be picked up at Central Receiving.

For courses that regularly interact with the public, deans and department heads should develop plans for how such interactions can occur in a safe manner. If this cannot occur, the courses should be redesigned or cancelled for the fall semester.

Field trips are limited to sites within Lafayette Parish or one of the parishes immediately adjacent to it. Longer field trips must be optional. Students must drive or will have to arrange for their transportation to and from the site. An appropriate alternative activity must be provided to students who cannot attend the trip.

Remote advising options must be available to all students.

Testing centers will be designated in large rooms/arenas to reduce the risk of exposure for students when taking exams in-person.

Student Resources & Support

Wi-Fi has been extended into designated areas so students and faculty can drive up and access University internet services.

Masks will be available in all face-to-face classrooms, though you are encouraged to wear your own if you have one.

Remote advising will be available to all students.

Testing centers will be designated in large rooms/arenas to reduce the risk of exposure for students when taking exams in-person.

The UL Lafayette Campus Cupboard is a resource for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff who require short-term assistance meeting their food needs. The pantry provides free, nonperishable items to meet students' temporary food needs.


Disability Services & Accomodations

The Office of Disability Services has posted guidelines and updates for accommodating students with disabilities as we transition to remote delivery.

Requesting disabilility accommodations

Students with disabilities should register with the Office of Disability Services to discuss accommodations for the Fall 2020 semester. This includes concerns about wearing masks due to a disability.

Accommodations meetings will be conducted in a virtual format.

If a student needs to request an additional accommodation, fill out the "Additional Accommodation Request" in AIM via ULink.

Disability Services Testing Center

As long as the university is holding face to face classes, the ODS testing center will be open to students who need testing accommodations.

Schedule exams with ODS via your AIM account through ULink at least 3 days prior to the test.

Absences from Class

Students who feel unwell should complete the Anticipated or Unplanned Absence form to alert the dean of students.

If you are experiencing COVID or flu-like symptoms, go home/stay in your residence, avoid contact with others, inform your roommates, and call the Student Health Center at 337-482-1328. If you are told quarantine or isolate because of you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are presumed positive because of symptoms and testing, complete the isolation and quarantine form.

If you are immunocompromised or uncomfortable attending classes

Consider your personal situation and determine if you can attend face-to-face classes. If you determine you should not attend classes on campus, review the course schedule and choose classes that are held online, remote, or that are HyFlex.

Though HyFlex courses have an in-person component, many can be modified to 100-percent remote delivery by working with the instructor.

If you start the fall semester but cannot complete it

If you realize you are unable to complete the semester in person once it begins, contact your instructor to see if there are any options to complete the course remotely.

Clarifying Student Expectations for Housing

Students will be responsible for complying with University policies public health as described in the Housing Contract Addendum found in the StarRez portal. Failure to comply may render the student unable to participate in residence hall activities and/or may result in a referral to Student Rights and Responsibilities. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Physical distancing
  • Compliance with isolation/quarantine protocols
  • Use of personal protective equipment, including face coverings
  • Communication of COVID-19 situations through the online self-reporting form

Housing Health and Safety

We know that your health and safety are of the utmost importance as you weigh your options for the upcoming year. Here are some of the measures we're taking.

Masks are Required

Anyone entering a residence hall/apartment building (including residents) must wear a mask while in public spaces.

Increased Cleaning Efforts

  • All common spaces and high touch point areas such as elevator buttons, water fountains, door handles, public restrooms, and laundry rooms will be cleaned at an increased frequency.
  • Signage is placed on every suite/jr suite/apartment entrance door as well as suite/jr suite/apartment bedroom doors explaining how students should self-report COVID-19 symptoms/issues.
  • Residents should bring their own cleaning supplies to clean all spaces within suite/jr suite/apartment. Here are some tips for cleaning your room.

Restricting Occupancy

No more than two residents will share a bathroom or bedroom. There will be no triples or quads.


  • Some residence hall spaces have been taken offline to be used as isolation/quarantine spaces for residents that decide to isolate/quarantine on campus.
  • Resident MUST follow the university’s isolation/quarantine policy, or they will be asked to move off campus. View the student COVID-19 quarantine and isolation form.
  • Residents must self-report if in contact with a positive person, feels symptoms, or has tested for COVID-19 (meaning the resident has taken a COVID-19 test but has not received the results yet). This is an online process. A flyer with the URL is on every suite/jr suite/apartment entrance door as well as suite/jr suite/apartment bedroom doors explaining how students should self-report COVID-19 symptoms/issues.
  • Housing, Residence Life, Student Affairs, and Student Health Services will work with any resident that needs to isolate/quarantine.

​Room Changes

  • If a resident decides to move to another room, isolation/quarantine students would only move the necessary items needed during the isolation/quarantine period, not all of their belongings.
  • When one resident is involved, the resident will be assigned to a new, clean space and move within two hours to a new room.
  • When two or more residents are involved, residents will move one-at-a-time into a clean space. Residents will be given two-hour windows to move. NOTE: Students cannot “swap” rooms. All rooms would need to be cleaned by Housing custodial staff before another resident can move into that room.

Common Spaces

Parking & Transit Changes Fall 2020

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and are making transportation decisions as new information emerges. Please check back frequently for updates.

Buses & Shuttles to and from Cajun Field & Bourgeois Hall

Students who ride the buses to and from Cajun Field, Bourgeois Hall, and main campus will be required to wear a face mask or face covering. All buses will have limited seating — at most, that is 18 passengers at a time. Passengers will load and unload from the rear doors to limit exposure issues, and every other seat will be blocked to ensure social distancing.

It’s important to know that these added safety measures will make wait times for the buses longer. We encourage you to build more time into your schedule or use the on-campus paid parking spaces when possible to reduce wait times for the buses at Cajun Field (however, we understand this isn’t feasible for all students).

New Pay Lot Added on Mildred Street

A new pay by the hour parking lot has been added for student and visitor use on Mildred Street behind the Continuing Education Building. This new lot will offer an additional parking option for students who would like to park closer to campus. This lot will operate the same as the pay by the hour floors in Girard Park Circle Parking Tower on campus. Individuals will pay for an estimated amount of time at the kiosks at the time they park their car.

When using the pay lots, individuals should make a note of their license plate information since this information is required during the payment process. Kiosks only accept a credit or debit card and do not accept cash. Individuals will enter their card in the slot and follow the prompts to complete the payment. Payment must be made at the time the car is parked for the estimated time the vehicle will be parked in the lot.

There is an option to enter a phone number during the payment process. This allows the system to send a text message approximately 10 minutes before expiration time reminding them time is about to expire. If additional time is needed, replying to the text with minutes in 60 minute increments allows the system to charge their payment card for the additional time plus a convenience fee of 25 cents.

Handicap Parking Permits - NEW PROCESS starting Fall 2020

The Office of Transportation Services is moving to electronic submission of state issued handicap credentials to obtain a handicap parking permit for students and employees starting August 3, 2020. This change is being put into place in an effort to reduce the foot traffic in our lobby for the safety of the students, employees and our staff.

Students who had a handicap parking permit for the spring 2020 semester and whose state issued credentials are still in effect should send an email that includes their full name, ULID and cell phone number to geauxpark@louisiana.edu requesting to purchase their fall 2020 commuter handicap parking permit online. We will confirm we have all the necessary credentials on file and then send an email within 2 business days with instructions. If we have any questions, we will email or call. Locations for parking for students with a commuter handicap parking permit can be found on the Zone Map.

Faculty and staff who wish to renew their annual handicap parking permit should send an email to geauxpark@louisiana.edu requesting to purchase their 2020-2021 parking permit online. We will confirm we have the credentials on file and send email within 2 business days with instructions.

Faculty, staff and students who are obtaining a handicap parking permit for the first time or have new credentials from the state should send an email that includes their full name, ULID, cell phone number and an electronic copy of their current drivers license, mobility impaired card and handicap placard or vehicle registration. All three must be currently in effect to be considered.

Electronic copies of the drivers license, mobility impaired card and handicap placard/vehicle registration should be clear and legible to be approved quicker. We do reserve the right to request the original credentials be brought into our office. If we have any questions about your request or your submission, we will email or call.

If a handicap parking permit is needed sooner than two business days, individuals are welcome to come into our office provided it is open to the public at that time.

Questions may be emailed to geauxpark@louisiana.edu.


Masks Required on Campus

All students, faculty, staff, and visitors must wear masks in public areas. View Gov. Edwards' mask mandate.

Masks will be available in all face-to-face classrooms, though students are encouraged to wear their own if they have one.

Instructors will be provided with transparent face masks in face-to-face scenarios to ensure maximum clarity, particularly for students who rely heavily on visual communication.

Social Distancing

Social distancing means keeping space between yourself and other people outside of your home. To practice social or physical distancing stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people. The University will follow all CDC guidelines, which require maintaining 6 feet between people in all environments.

Class sizes have been designed to maintain at least 6 feet between all students and faculty. In some instances, seats and desks may be blocked off to ensure social distancing.

Signage in halls and common areas directs traffic flow and reminds viewers of appropriate behaviors, such as social distancing, proper hygiene and PPE protocols, and maximum room occupancies.

Tips & Prevention

You can take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Download our safety advice and tips sheet  and visit the CDC's website for more information on prevention.

Disinfecting & Cleaning

The University is taking safety measures to maintain the cleanliness of our campus to mitigate any spread of a possible infection.

What we're doing

Our custodial staff meets daily to discuss and follow up on all safety requirements, updates, and changes regarding the COVID-19 virus. Academic building inspections are taking place multiple times a day across our campus. The staff is using approved disinfecting agents to kill all bacterial, viral, and infection droplets on all surfaces, door handles, stair rails, restroom facilities, and water fountains. All hand sanitizing dispensers are checked multiple times daily.

How you can help

Disinfecting supplies will be available in classrooms so that faculty and students can wipe down desks, podiums, and equipment between classes and labs.

Hand sanitizer will be available in all buildings and classrooms. Be sure to wear a mask and keep your hands clean.

What to do if you're showing COVID-19 symptoms

Students must be free of ANY symptoms that are potentially related to COVID-19 before coming on campus. Currently, COVID-19 symptoms include one or more of the following:

  • Cough;
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing;
  • Fever;
  • Chills;
  • Muscle pain;
  • Headache;
  • Sore throat;
  • New loss of taste or smell;
  • New GI symptoms;
  • Trouble breathing;
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest;
  • New confusion;
  • Inability to wake or stay awake; and
  • Bluish lips or face.

Students experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 or who may have been exposed to the virus must remain at home and contact their primary care clinicians or Student Health Services in order to seek advice and receive clearance before returning to campus.

The University requires anyone coming from CDC Warning Level 3 countries or those who know that they potentially have been exposed to someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 to self-quarantine for fourteen (14) days before returning to campus. If a student develops symptoms potentially related to COVID-19 at any point, regardless of whether or not the student has traveled recently, the University requests that students contact their primary care clinicians or Student Health Services.

Students must report if they are COVID-19 positive, if they have been asked to quarantine, or isolate.
