Visitors and Events

Visiting Drexel

To reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission, visitor access to Drexel’s campus buildings is restricted to individuals hosted by an official Drexel department or organization, including people doing business or providing services on campus, such as vendors, independent contractors and consultants. Visitors and family members are not permitted in Drexel University Campus Housing.

Prior to arriving on campus, all approved visitors MUST check in using the online Drexel Health Checker.

Drexel Health Checker.

Visitors (individuals who are not students, faculty or Drexel professional staff) must comply with all of Drexel’s public health policies and procedures and accept The Dragon Pledge, and are urged to review state travel advisories and health guidelines.

Get Cleared to Come to Campus

  • Confirm with your Drexel host that you have permission to attend campus on the appointed date. If the building or facility you are visiting requires DragonCard access, your host department will work directly with Drexel University Public Safety to request access for you.
  • Review The Dragon Pledge [PDF].
  • On the day of your visit, 1–2 hours (and no more than 24 hours) prior to your arrival, you must complete the online Drexel Health Checker. Based on your responses, you’ll be notified by email whether you are permitted to come to campus. If approved, print or screenshot your green check mark certificate and be prepared to show it to your host or other University staff.

  • You must complete the online Drexel Health Checker and receive a green check mark certificate every day that you plan to be on campus.

While on campus, visitors are always required to wear a face mask inside all campus buildings, and outdoors within 6 feet of any other person. While disposable masks may be available, it is your responsibility as a Drexel visitor to bring and wear a mask. Please stay at least 6 feet apart from other people, and wash your hands frequently.

In addition to reviewing The Dragon Pledge and completing the daily Drexel Health Checker, please visit the Drexel Admissions Visit Center page for additional details.

Additional Guidelines for Drexel Vendors

Drexel University is issuing additional workplace controls for Drexel vendors to reduce the likelihood of spreading coronavirus. Please see the following PDF: Drexel Vendor Guidelines During COVID-19 [PDF].


Whenever possible, please pursue virtual and other events that don't take place in person. Only essential events (those critical to the operation and mission of the University) will be permitted on Drexel's campus. All on- and off-campus events must be approved beforehand through DragonLink (students) or through the Return Oversight Committee (faculty and professional staff) and must follow the guidelines in this document: Drexel Event Guidelines [PDF]. These guidelines were made in conjunction with the COVID-19 health and safety requirements issued by federal, state and local public health authorities, as well as by Drexel University public health experts. These guidelines may be modified and further specified over time, as changes during the COVID-19 pandemic require.


Thank you for complying with these procedures to keep you, your contacts, and our whole campus community safe. If you have further questions, your Drexel University contact will be able to help answer them.
