Current policies and protocols for visitors, Continuing Studies students, and the general public. 

Campus Visitors and Tours 

Visitor Policy

Visitors are allowed by appointment only and must check in with the department they are visiting to obtain an expiring Visitor badge. Managers who expect their areas to be inviting guests to campus but have not yet been trained to create them should contact Public Safety ( Although we at Ringling College have always been known for welcoming the community to our campus, departments are still encouraged to limit in-person interactions with guests from outside our campus community whenever possible to help maintain the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.

Library and Campus Galleries

Library and Gallery staff have already begun providing services on campus; however, those services may be limited at this time. Please contact Kristina Keogh, director of library services, at or Tim Jaeger, director and chief curator of galleries and exhibitions, at for the most current services and hours available. 


As with other public spaces on campus, face coverings are being required; occupancy limits are being reconsidered to accommodate physical distancing requirements; signage is being added to address spacing and traffic flow where appropriate; additional hand sanitizing stations are being installed; and occupancy limits of elevators are being determined and signage posted.
