Capitol Federal Hall access for fall 2020

Students can access Capitol Federal Hall only for classes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday during the fall 2020 semester in order to allow for more cleaning and help reduce foot traffic and contact in the building. Additionally, some areas inside of Capitol Federal Hall will be closed to all use or have restricted access as indicated in building maps.

Important changes in the building

  • There will be two main points of entry to Capitol Federal Hall, which are noted in building maps. Those entering the building will scan QR codes, which are generated upon completion of a daily health assessment in the CVKey app. Faculty and staff may enter the building through the east entrance, also noted in building maps.
    • Exit the building through the northwest and northeast stairwells, the doors by the auditorium or through the right-hand side of the east doors.
  • Sanitation stations and directional signs will be available throughout the building in common spaces and along hallways.
  • Printers will be available for use and will be equipped with wipes and hand sanitizer. There will be no log-in required on these devices to help reduce contact.
  • Stairways will be clearly marked as either "up" or "down" to control traffic flow. The main stairway located in the Anderson Family Atrium is the "up" stairway in Capitol Federal Hall. The stairways located in the northwest and northeast corners of the building are "down" stairways.
  • Elevators should hold only one person at a time.
  • The School of Business J Cafe will be operational, offering only grab-and-go items. Those waiting to order will be expected to keep physical distance from one another. Tables typically located near the cafe will not be accessible for use.
    • Food and drinks will not be allowed in the building. Students will be expected to consume food and drink outside. 
  • The Honors Student Lounge, MBA Student Lounge and MAcc Student Lounge will not be accessible during the fall semester.
  • Additional information about cleaning protocols and other adjustments to facilities can be found on protect.ku.edu
