“Six feet apart” is the public health mantra of the moment and, in some ways, the antithesis of how many academic institutions have previously viewed campus life. What does it mean for classroom utilization? For residential life? For student health services? In this session, our panel discusses what “campus life” might mean — both in the wake of and in the long-term aftermath of a pandemic.

The short-term needs of both cities and campuses have fundamentally shifted due the pandemic — and some long-term ones are likely to change as well. In this panel discussion, we explore how the relationship between city and campus, and the physical infrastructure that both offer, can be leveraged to support public health, financial viability, and sustainability in a COVID-19 age.

What does this all mean for physical space requirements? Our panel will discuss these questions and more.
