Updates for return to campus

  • Fall Food Reopening. Starbucks and Bauer Café will open August 2 as staff begins returning to campus. Starbucks hours: 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., M-F. Bauer Café hours: 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with grab-and-go options), M-F. Customers will be able to use a new mobile ordering platform at both locations (details to come). Watch for hours to expand during the month. Meanwhile, a reminder about the Olin dining website.
  • Fall Cleaning/Custodial Protocols. Fall cleaning schedules will resemble pre-pandemic operations. Cleaning teams will request your patience as they adjust to more building traffic and increased office occupancy. Find summer COVID-19 cleaning schedules and reminders here, which is where changes and updates will appear. As always, requests for additional or special cleaning services can be placed on the Olin General Services site
  • General Services Help. Need help carrying that heavy file box back to your office? General Services can help! Submit a request with Olin General Services for curbside service the day you return to campus. They’ll bring a cart or dolly and their smiles to help you lug that stuff back to your office. Submit your request today to make sure it’s on their schedule.
  • IT Help. Need help setting up your computing equipment when you return? WashU IT can help! Complete this form in ServiceNow to schedule assistance with IT Deskside support. Advance notice required. Schedule early for what will likely be a popular request.
  • Card Access. No change in card access for exterior doors on Danforth: 24/7 swipe access is required. But if you can’t find your card is, you’ll need to replace it before you return to the office (for a fee). Details here.
  • Key Access. Lost your hard key, too? Olin Operations can help, but, again, there is a fee. Visit here to request a replacement.
  • Parking Operations. Parking is complimentary in visitor and yellow designated spaces, but normal operations resume August 16. Purchase a 2021-22 permit now to be safe. Remember the Occasional Parking Program is an option.
