Tartans, All In. Everywhere.
Tartan Testing Ramp Up: By Invitation Only
The Tartan COVID-19 Asymptomatic Testing Program is CMU's program for the diagnosis of COVID-19 in asymptomatic individuals and is the latest element of the university's ongoing strategy to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
At this time, only those who have received a testing invitation email may schedule appointments. As we ramp up the Tartan Testing program, the size of this invited cohort will expand over time until we are able to offer testing to all Pittsburgh-based students, faculty and staff.
Most current numbers of cases at CMU, as well as Allegheny County data.

Current Service Posture
Restricted Services, Effective 12/11/20
Following Allegheny County’s stay-at-home orders, we changed our campus posture from modified to restricted services.
Approved projects are returning to their CMU locations while complying with university-wide minimum requirements. All other researchers are continuing to operate remotely until authorized to return to CMU facilities.
Working at CMU
The majority of departments and units across the university are currently working remotely. As future business needs dictate, the university has created plans for select units/employees to return to campus under strict guidance.
Student Wellness Kits
CMU’s Wellness Kits have what you need to follow the four behaviors shown below, and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Pick up your kit during Winter Welcome events at the beginning of the spring 2021 semester.
Campus Services Operating Hours
Most campus services are available remotely and/or in person with modified operating hours. Visit the Campus Services Operating Hours page for contact information and details for the various departments across campus.
El Gallo de Oro, Entropy+, Stephanie's - Market C and Tartan Express are currently open for take-out dining.
Seating arrangements in open areas across campus have been repositioned to allow for at least six feet of distance. Campus buildings are operating at approximately 50% capacity (or less) to reduce exposure and high-touch, high-traffic areas are cleaned consistently throughout the day.
