Study, dining and Zoom locations on campus

Olin has marked out the following locations in its facilities where students can study, eat or engage in a Zoom call, along with the capacity in those locations. These should not be confused with WashU-supplied “Zoom pods”—referred to as “cubbies” on this WashU page under the “Campus Spaces” section (here is where you can reserve a WashU cubbie). The university pods appear as though they will be wired for power. Electrical access at the Olin locations is limited to whatever is available nearby in the space.

In addition to the capacity counts listed below—totaling 123 tables for study, dining and Zoom—Olin has increased single-seat capacity (without tables) across Knight Center, Knight and Bauer halls and Simon Hall by reusing furniture relocated from lounges and various other spaces in common areas on floors 1-3 of Bauer Hall and the lower level of Simon Hall. Here are the locations with tables (and available capacity) in Olin’s buildings:

  • 38 seats in the third-floor atrium
  • 24 seats in the BSBA Student Lounge, Simon Hall
  • 23 seats in the A-B Dining Room, Knight Center
  • 12 seats in the space formerly occupied by Einstein’s in Simon Hall
  • 11 seats in the Simon Hall courtyard
  • 9 seats in the Grad Student Lounge, Bauer Hall
  • 6 seats in the Knight Center courtyard

PhD student office attendance

All PhD students will work and conduct research from home unless absolutely necessary to work on campus (approval from Dean’s office necessary). All meetings with PhD students will be held online.

Student advising (both academic and WCC)

All advising appointments should be held virtually to the extent possible.

Students clubs, organizations, and extracurricular activities

Based on university guidelines.
