Return to Kennedy Hall – Fowler Law School Update

This post was updated on

The following communication was sent from Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Nidhi Vogt to law students on September 22, 2020.

Dear Students,

As President Struppa indicated, we will begin a gradual return to Kennedy Hall on October 5th. Our initial phase will be for the limited purpose of holding hybrid and in-person classes. Your professor will provide more information regarding your classes, including when students may attend in-person and hybrid classes. It is possible that some classes originally intended for in-person or hybrid format could remain online if the faculty choose to remain remote. Kennedy Hall will generally not be open for students to study or socialize at this time. The University will have some study spaces in tented areas around campus, but we ask that if you are in Kennedy Hall to attend class, you leave once your class is over. Students who wish to remain off campus for the fall semester may take their fall classes remotely. All student meetings with professors, administrators, and/or student groups will continue to occur virtually.

We take the health and safety of our community seriously, and there are several initiatives underway by the University and safety measures required before returning. If you choose to return to campus for an in-person or hybrid class, please follow the University’s return-to-campus process for Orange Campus, which requires you to:

  1. Complete the Online Training: You can access the COVID-19 Safety Training at
  2. Take the COVID-19 PCR at-home test (within 14 days before you return to campus) through Pixel by LabCorp: To request your Pixel by LabCorp at-home test kit, go to: You must use your Chapman email address when registering.
  3. Daily Symptom Monitoring Survey: You will not receive the daily symptom screen email until you’ve completed the online training and COVID-19 test. The daily screen is emailed to you and needs to be completed on days you will be on campus.

You must receive a “Cleared” email message from the daily symptom survey before coming to campus.

These protocols and processes may change as needed. For updates and other University announcements related to COVID-19, please check the CU Safely Back website frequently. 

Another email will be sent soon about the new safety measures and protocols in place at Kennedy Hall.
