The LInC, the HC offices and the SLUG will remain open in winter term to provide students with support, services and study spaces as long as conditions allow. Co-curricular activities will be offered both in-person and remotely. HC advising will be offered primarily remotely, but students who wish an in person meeting should contact the Honors College advising office. Our plan for these services and their availability will respond to current health conditions and public health guidelines, and we will take all precautions to minimize student, staff and faculty risk of exposure to COVID-19. Information about Oregon State University's current safety and success plans is available here.

The Student Learning Center in the LInC (the SLUG) is currently closed and will reopen on Monday, January 4th during its typical hours of operation, with restrictions on capacity (currently limited to 40 students) and some new policies designed to increase safety.

During the term, access to the LInC on Sundays and Monday-Thursday after 6:00 p.m. requires use of your ID card and is restricted to Honors College students. HC students working in the LInC outside of building hours (6:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday) are restricted to the SLUG, Honors College classrooms and adjoining study spaces. When entering and exiting after hours, be sure external doors close and latch. Violation of rules, bringing in non-honors students after hours, or sharing the passcode may result in suspension of after-hours privileges for the entire HC community.

Students accessing the SLUG are required to clean up after themselves according to posted instructions using provided supplies.
