After careful review of the health and safety needs of the Ithaca College campus community, the evolving landscape in NCAA Division III, and the alarming increase in COVID-19 cases around the country, the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has come to the difficult decision to suspend all fall competition for the 2020 season.

State and local health and safety guidelines require physical distancing in order for the college to reopen for in person instruction.  To accommodate the need to prioritize instruction and food service, many event and meeting spaces will need to be repurposed for at least the fall semester.  Beginning immediately, all existing reservations for fall semester events and meetings will be canceled in various campus spaces. 

Once the scheduling process for academic and dining services is complete, the college will review reservation requests for the fall and spring semesters taking state, local and college guidelines into consideration.  An additional notice will be posted in Intercom at that time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
