Ready! Student checklist
Students may sign up for testing clinics held throughout the semester at Lane Stadium or attend walk-in testing clinics when available. Students may also be selected for random prevalence testing throughout the semester. Review the testing section of the Ready site for the latest information on COVID testing.
Hours and accessibility have been altered as a safety precaution this year.
Whether it’s managing your health, wellness, or finances, there are plenty of options – both in-person and virtual – to assist in achieving your goals.
Check out Student Engagement and Campus Life for student center schedules and upcoming events. Make sure to check out GobblerConnect for upcoming programs, and keep an eye on the student email for the latest Hokies Can Do options and pod programming.
Review updated procedures and offerings from Rec Sports – There are lots of options for exercise and competition while staying safe and healthy this spring.
Keep an eye out for updates to this checklist and other information provided throughout the semester to be aware of the most current guidelines, as well as testing and even vaccination information.
Study spaces, gathering areas, Wi-Fi
If your in-person class ends at 9 a.m. and your next online class starts right away, what do you do?
Both of these maps are available in the Hokie Ready app by clicking on the Maps icon.
There are six sites for studying and gathering outdoors:
- Dietrick Plaza
- Peddrew-Yates Plaza
- Owens Plaza
- Lavery Hall Plaza (near Turner Place)
- Burchard Plaza
- Derring Hall overhang
All of these locations have outdoor furniture, lighting, and coverage from the elements. Burchard Plaza, Dietrick Plaza, and the Derring Hall overhang have new power sources to charge your devices.
Wi-Fi: Alongside the existing outdoor Wi-Fi areas, the university is upgrading outdoor Wi-Fi at several locations, including Burchard Hall Plaza, Hahn Garden area, Owens Hall courtyard, and the Lavery Hall patio near Turner Place. The map referenced above shows the approximate range at each of the existing and new locations.
The rooms listed below are reserved for students who need to study or attend an online course, especially for those who might not be able to get back to their apartment in the time between an in-person and online course.
While the rooms will have capacity limits, there are nearly 600 seats available across the 53 rooms, which are dedicated to this academic use. The rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and hours are subject to change.
