COVID-19 Updates

Alumni Gym and Schaffer Library facilities update

Publication Date

Given the high rate of COVID infection in Schenectady County, we are announcing changes to building access for the first two weeks of the winter term.

The Schaffer Library will be open with limited access Monday - Friday 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Students and faculty can enter the building for classes, use the Bloomberg Terminal, print and pick up requested materials. There will be no studying or in person services in the building. Please see our website for more information:

Alumni Gym is currently closed and will reopen for general campus use beginning on Monday, January 25. Please see our website for more information:

With the high rate of infection and the confirmation that the UK strain is present in upstate New York, we decided to close the buildings for general use until students get their full round of test results back.

Please let us know what questions you may have.
