Public Spaces, Events, and Visitors to Campus

Bowdoin College continues to be closed to the public in order to protect the health of students, faculty, and staff and the broader Brunswick community. Until further notice, only students, faculty, and staff participating in the College’s testing program through the Broad Institute are permitted inside any campus facilities or on campus grounds. Exceptions to this rule are the trails and athletic fields at Pickard and Whittier Fields and the playground area on Longfellow Avenue. A decision regarding access to the fields will be made at a later time.

Visitors will have access to these outside spaces provided that gatherings are kept at or below the active campus status level requirement, individuals are wearing face coverings when six feet of distance cannot be maintained, and pets are leashed, unless state guidelines supersede any of these rules.

With the exception of the trails marked by the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust, the facilities and grounds at the Schiller Coastal Studies Center in Harpswell are closed to the public. Students, faculty, and staff participating in the College’s testing program through the Broad Institute may access the grounds, but only preauthorized students, faculty, and staff may access any buildings or the docks.
