Service Provider and Vendor Access to Campus

Service provider, vendor, and visitor access to campus continues to be restricted¬† to support the University’s efforts to provide a safe and healthy campus. Service providers, vendors, and individuals conducting business with a University office/department must only be allowed to access University buildings, when necessary, to provide essential support for University operations. Their access must be approved in advance by the relevant dean, director, or unit leader (or their designee).

Package deliveries, including deliveries from FedEx and UPS, will continue to be re-directed to the Hawkins Warehouse. Facilities Services will deliver the packages from Hawkins to their specific on-campus delivery locations and also pick-up outgoing mail and packages from building mail rooms and mail boxes.

Departments and University personnel coordinating to have an on-campus visit(s) by a service provider, vendor, or other individual conducting scheduled business with a University office/department, are asked to:

  • Obtain dean, director, or unit leader (or their designee) approval prior to authorizing a service provider, vendor, or individual conducting business at the University to come on campus. For research laboratories, the principal investigator must also authorize their visit.
  • Schedule the on-campus visit(s) by the service provider, vendor, or individual conducting business at the University in advance of their planned arrival on campus.
  • Advise the service provider, vendor, or individual conducting business at the University of their obligation to complete the University’s ¬†COVID-19 Safety Certification for Service Providers and Vendors form.
  • Confirm the service provider, vendor, or individual conducting business at the University has completed a COVID-19 Safety Certification before their arrival to campus. A copy of the submitted certification form will be emailed to Purchasing and to the University contact email they enter on the form.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, these requirements may be updated as needed to align with the most current public health recommendations and University requirements.

Construction contractors hired by Syracuse University Facilities Services or Campus Planning, Design and Construction (CPDC) are required to adhere to the CPDC and Facilities Services specific contractor safety requirements, the terms of their contracts, and their site-specific health and safety plans.
