COVID-19 Information

Campus Life


Though masks are not currently required in most campus settings, some locations and activities may require masks to be worn. The University may require masks more broadly if local transmission of COVID-19 in the Harding community is determined to be high. Students and employees should bring masks to campus and have them available for immediate use.

Residence Halls

Students are asked to be mindful of distancing when visiting the rooms of their friends. Only fellow students are allowed past the lobby of a residence hall after move-in week. We ask that all guests in the lobby be mindful of distancing. Masks are optional at this time.

Cafeteria and Student Center Food Court

Seating is currently at full capacity. We ask that students be mindful of those who may prefer to have increased distancing while eating.


Chapel is especially important to the Harding experience. It is where we gather each day to worship and build community. We plan on meeting together daily at 9 a.m. All students will choose a chapel seat via Pipeline. Masks in chapel are optional at this time; if you would prefer to sit in a section that allows one seat of spacing between students and requires a mask, please email with this request. The University may require masks in chapel if local transmission of COVID-19 in the Harding community is determined to be high.

Campus Activities

The Office of Campus Life is looking forward to the return of students and will be offering a number of campus activities including tailgating, concerts and movies. Some specific activities may require masks and/or distancing.


2021-22 sports schedules and season ticket information can be found at As we receive more information from the NCAA Sports Science Institute for competition recommendations and guidelines, we will get that information to our student-athletes.
