As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and campus response, the Environmental Studies Program is operating fully remotely and the building is restricted to critical personnel only. ENVS personnel are available via email and Microsoft Teams Chat. Please view our directory for contact information and continue to contact individual staff members for assistance.

OIT has provided information for remote teaching resources and remote work resources, as well as remote learning resources during this ongoing situation.



Building Access

At this time, all campus buildings are locked and access is only available using a BuffOne Card. Faculty, staff and researchers should work remotely as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020 unless given approval from the program director. 

The most up-to-date information on building access and campus restrictions can be found on the Campus Building Access site. Please be sure to check the FAQ section on that page to see if your access questions have already been answered.

According to University policies and procedure, critical employees who are on campus are encouraged to take the following precautions:

  • Limit your time on campus to working as needed (e.g., remote teaching/critical research functions).
  • Remember that you should still practice social distancing (e.g., use your own office and do not congregate).
  • Be mindful that you may be responsible for cleaning your office and area (e.g., custodial work is not prioritizing your space).

Mail Distribution

With campus operations scaling down in most campus buildings due to COVID-19, the Distribution Center will also be modifying operations for distribution of mail and packages, including UPS packages. We are making these changes due to campus efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing and remote work arrangements, including reduced staff working onsite in our own operations.

Faculty and staff can cancel their permits or put them on hold. If they cancel their permit, they are not guaranteed a spot in their previous parking lot when they return. If they put the permit on hold, it is on hold for a minimum of one month and their parking lot is reserved when they return. To do this, visit the parking permits web page.

Students can email Parking Services at to request a cancellation and a refund.
