Campus Visitors

We are excited to announce that, effective May 17, the Greenville community and general public may once again access the lake and other outdoor facilities.

The only indoor location currently accessible to the general public is the Barnes & Noble Bookstore, including Starbucks.

Visitors are welcome outdoors to take wedding and prom photos. Small family/group picnics also are permitted. We just ask that visitors keep their groups to fewer than 10 and that groups remain self-contained and physically distanced from high-traffic areas close to buildings.

The Golf Course continues to be open and available to the public.

Parents and Families

Parents and families of students are welcome to visit Furman. We encourage parent and family member visits to occur in outdoor spaces. Family members are not permitted in the residence halls and apartments (except for move in and move out), academic buildings, or other campus facilities, but may access the Barnes & Noble Bookstore and Starbucks. We ask that parents and families follow campus health and safety protocols.

University Invited Guests

Alumni, friends of Furman, and other guests may be invited to campus; appropriate health and safety protocols will be shared by the organizing department or office. The Furman host is responsible for ensuring these protocols are followed.

Guests may access the Barnes & Noble Bookstore and Starbucks. All other facilities are off limits to visitors and may only be accessed with the permission of the Furman host.

Sports Medicine patients may continue to access the Alley Gym and the PAC therapy pool as prescribed and scheduled by Sports Medicine staff.

Effective June 1, Furman OLLI students may access the Herring Center for classes.

Vendors and Contractors

Vendors and contractors must be approved to enter campus buildings. All companies will be required to review and sign safety requirements before their employees and associated subcontractors are allowed to work at Furman. Submit the completed safety requirements form to Jeff Redderson, AVP for Facility and Campus Services, for review and approval.

The university will closely monitor the evolving circumstances related to COVID-19, along with rapidly developing scientific knowledge and medical resources, to determine the appropriateness for adjustments and contingencies.  For general questions, please email furman.focused@furman.edu
