Event Guidelines

Minnesota State University, Mankato wants to ensure the necessary guidance and protocols are followed to protect the campus community as you plan for your upcoming event. Our goal is to work together to build a safe community that celebrates co-curricular learning and fun.

Campus Requirements 

  • Each event should have an individual responsible for ensuring guidelines are followed.
  • We recommend that those who have not been vaccinated get vaccinated.

Event Considerations 

  • Hand sanitizer should be available for use before entering and exiting spaces. 
  • Establish a COVID-19 safety plan that ensures campus activities are safe for students and staff.
