Indoor Events, Gatherings, and Activities

In accordance with the California Department of Public Health guidance for Institutions of Higher Education, while Butte County remains on the State County Monitoring List, all in-person, indoor student activities, meetings, group events or gatherings are prohibited except for approved, specialized instruction. This applies to the use of Chico State, Chico State Associated Students, Chico State Enterprises and Chico State Housing facilities. Face to face interactions for one-on-one advising, or other essential campus operations, may be permitted after completing the return to campus process and establishing proper health and safety protocol.


Any in-person gatherings are an exception to current policy mandating virtual services and will be allowed on a very limited basis. At this time, only small and medium on-campus gatherings of up to 50 people may be considered and must follow the exception approval process. For more details, please email  fres@csuchico.edu(opens in new window)(opens in new window). Large on-campus events and gatherings of more than 50 people in one place at one time are restricted until Butte County has moved into later stages of reopening.
All previously scheduled campus events for the fall remain canceled, postponed, or moved to online delivery. Athletic competitions remain suspended for fall. The vast majority of University athletics, recreational sports, and intramural and sport club programs will remain virtual.
