Club programming and extracurricular activities will continue, but will be reduced and modified for remote delivery based on health and safety protocols.
A small number of programs or activities may be offered in-person only when the college social distancing policies as well as protocols from state and local authorities are met.
Large group gatherings and events are prohibited. Performances and exhibitions will not be open to the public.
Gatherings or Parties
Gatherings or parties of any size are prohibited in all residential spaces. Visitors/guests are not allowed in the residence halls and/or apartments. This includes family, other students, etc.
Outside gatherings of more than 25 people are prohibited and subject to change based on local and state ordinance. When engaging outdoors, all students must maintain social distance and wear masks.
Requests for official events must obtain approval, limit size of participates/attendees, and abide by the social distancing and mask policy. To submit a request for an In Person Event, please complete the In-Person Event Request form.
Campus departments, student groups, and independent organizers considering holding an in-person/face-to-face event or gathering must submit a brief narrative to address the five elements of the event rubric to the Student Services Working Group for clearance 21 business days prior to the event.
There will be no athletic competitions in the fall semester. Support will be provided for student athletes to continue to train within safety guidelines. We hope conditions will allow for the resumption of competition in the spring semester.
A new webpage will gather the extracurricular activities and content offered remotely.

In addition to college policy and the Student Code of Conduct, Purchase College has, and will continue to comply with SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras’ set of SUNY-wide standards for those who do not comply with COVID-19 safety protocols. The Uniform Sanctioning in Response to COVID-19 Student Violations (effective October 1, 2020) sets a range of allowable sanctions for the infractions listed below:
- Intentional Violations of COVID-Positive Students
- Failure to Self-Isolate
- Failure to Quarantine
- Prohibited On-Campus or Off-Campus Gathering
- Violations of Face Mask and Social Distancing Requirements
- Contact Tracing
- Failure to Comply with Campus Health Protocols (e.g. daily COVID screenings and pool testing)
Non-compliance may result in a disciplinary referral to the Office of Community Standards for further action under the Student Code of Conduct.
Allowable sanctions include a suspension from college and/or housing access with continued access to their academic program via remote learning only (if available and as subject to campus policy and process), college and/or housing suspension, or permanent dismissal from the institution. All sanctions established in this policy serve as the minimum. The college has discretion to enact higher sanctions where merited.
Additionally, residential students that fail to comply may be removed from on-campus housing through the Office of Community Engagement Residence License Agreement.
Pursuant to their continuous participation on campus, students understand that they need to comply with the college’s policies, safety protocols, and COVID-19 re-opening plan.
