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 surveillance 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. Access to the fields is restricted after sundown to approved athletic activities with coach supervision only. Visitors will have access to these outside spaces provided that gatherings are kept at or below the active campus status level requirement, individuals are masked when six feet of distance cannot be maintained, and pets are leashed. Signage will be posted along the perimeter of campus to alert visitors of these restrictions.
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 surveillance testing program through the Broad Institute may access the grounds, but only preauthorized students, faculty, and staff may access any buildings or the docks.
