Accessing campus


Students, Faculty, Staff – Daily Health Screening

PSC faculty, staff, and students are expected to complete a daily health screening assessment prior to arriving on campus or leaving the residence hall. Individuals are encouraged to use the college’s new mobile app for this purpose.

Visitors and Guests

Families, friends, and other casual visitors are not permitted on campus. The following types of guests will be permitted provided they complete our health screening questionnaire, follow our health and safety protocols, and are sponsored by a PSC employee who will be responsible for compliance:

  • Business-critical vendors and partners
  • Prospective student
  • Prospective student family member
  • Guest lecturer/academic presenter
  • Business-critical vendor/partner
  • PSC service outlets guest: Ganzi restaurant, A.P. Smith’s bakery & Packbasket bookstore
    VIC guest/visitor


The Hutch and Lakeside Dining Hall are operating with modifications. Please click here for details regarding hours of operation and available services.

The bakery and restaurant are a critical part of the training for our AOS, AAS and BPS baking and culinary students. In the Spring 2021 semester the bakery will be open to the college community only with very limited hours and menu. Staff will adhere to college-wide physical distancing and cleaning/disinfection protocols as described elsewhere in this document.

Due to the educational nature of serving guests, the Ganzi may allow off-campus visitors later in the spring semester depending on the pandemic climate in NNY. Off-campus patrons will be required to obtain an advance reservation, and they will be screened before entering the restaurant.


The library is open to the PSC community for adjusted hours. Please click here to review all of the below policies before joining us in the library.
