COVID Safety & Campus Access Guidelines for Visitors and Event Guests

Last Update: April 21, 2022

Effective May 1, visitors will no longer need to be pre-approved and event guests will no longer need an access placard. Also, Lion Health Check will no longer be required. Read more here. 

For events occurring on April 30, 2022 or prior, please refer to the following policies that will remain in place until May 1. 

Before You Arrive
Prior to coming to campus, you are required to take your temperature and submit your Lion Health Check. All visitors and event guests over the age of 2 years old must be fully vaccinated* or have received a negative result from a COVID test** collected prior to arrival on campus.  

You may attest to your vaccination status or negative test in the Lion Health Check. For those who will be returning to campus frequently, you may upload proof of vaccination in the Lion Health Check for extended clearance to avoid having to re-submit your Lion Health Check prior to each visit. 

*Per the CDC and L.A. County Department of Public Health, an individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or two weeks after the second dose of Pfizer, Moderna or W.H.O approved international vaccines. 

**If providing a negative test result, it must either be:

  • PCR test taken within three (3) days of the event OR
  • Antigen test taken within one (1) day of the event.

Campus Access
Enter campus from Lincoln Blvd/LMU Dr using the far-left visitor lane.  You will be required to show your completed Lion Health Check at the LMU Drive gate. The completed mobile app (showing a green checkmark or green VAX) or the corresponding email confirmation will be accepted. You will also be required to provide your name or show your campus access placard (electronic or printed) if a placard has been issued to you. Those who are not cleared, are not on a visitor list, or do not have a placard are not permitted to enter campus.

Be advised that the Loyola Boulevard entrance is closed to visitors, including pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles. 

Important Safety Reminders
As of March 7, 2022, face masks are no longer required on campus, although those who prefer to wear them are welcome to do so. Restrooms will be open and cleaned regularly, and hand sanitizer is available throughout buildings and learning spaces.

Do not come to campus if you are feeling ill or under quarantine or isolation. If you develop symptoms while on campus, promptly leave and get tested for COVID-19. If you test positive within the two days after your visit to campus, notify the LMU COVID Support Team.

If you are not fully vaccinated and you learn that you were exposed to a COVID-positive case in the 10 days prior to coming to campus, quarantine and contact the LMU COVID Support Team using this form.

The COVID Support Team may be reached daily, including weekends and holidays, at or 310.568.6868.

Paid parking is enforced Monday – Friday, from 8am to 8pm.  Timed spaces are enforced 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
