Fall 2020 Campus Reopening

The campus of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVOTS) will be open for course instruction, residential student housing, meals and other student services for the Fall 2020 Semester.

SVOTS is committed to the health and safety of its seminarians, faculty, staff, and community members. In compliance with New York State directives (which are subject to change), and after consultation with experts and input from Seminary stakeholders, the Seminary is making necessary adjustments to campus life and procedures during the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Among other safety precautions, masks, social distancing, proper hygiene, testing and regular screenings are being mandated on campus; classrooms will be arranged for social distancing (students also have the option to attend sessions online); requirements for chapel attendance will be modified; cleaning and disinfecting of personal and common spaces will occur regularly throughout the semester; the Bookstore will remain closed to all walk-in customers (but orders may still be placed online, at SVSPress.com); and the Seminary’s Three Hierarchs Chapel will be closed to anyone outside the Seminary community.   

Further information and instructions for students, employees, and community members may be found here.
