Guidelines for Campus Visitors

We understand our visitors are concerned about safety, and we want everyone that visits our campus to be assured that we are taking your concerns and the well-being of our Belmont community seriously. Below outlines what we are asking of all visitors, guests and vendors who come to Belmont's campus:

  • In order to keep our campus community as safe and healthy as possible, all visitors to Belmont's campus are asked to bring a mask or face covering and wear it while on campus. Masks must be properly worn, covering an individual's nose, mouth and chin area.
  • We are enforcing social distancing. Everyone on campus should maintain a distance of six feet apart. All spaces on campus have been evaluated and adjusted as necessary to maintain proper social distancing.
  • Several sanitation stations are located on campus, and frequent handwashing will be encouraged. The University is also enhancing cleaning protocols.
  • If you feel sick or have a temperature above 100.4, please stay home, and reschedule your campus visit.
  • Please be aware of COVID-19 symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle pain or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. Do not visit campus if you or someone traveling with you is exhibiting any of these symptoms.

Admissions Visits 

Belmont is happy to welcome prospective students and their families, and in-person campus visits resumed on June 15, 2020. In accordance with Nashville's Roadmap for Reopening, we are limiting the size of our Campus Tours and Information Sessions so sessions may fill quickly. You can schedule your Campus Visit on our Admissions site. Please carefully review the health and safety expectations above prior to your visit.
