Ball State released the full operation recovery plan for the L.A. Pittenger Student Center Monday, detailing how the Student Center and its amenities — including the University Hotel — will operate during the summer and fall 2020 semesters.
The University Hotel will start its phased reopening process Monday, the plan states. Prior to opening, the hotel will be cleaned, disinfected, and sanitized.
On July 13, the hotel will re-open at 25 percent room occupancy for three weeks, it states. Reservations will only be available for four nights a week, Monday through Thursday, due to limited availability of building operations.
The plan states hotel occupancy will be increased to 50 percent beginning Aug. 3. The days of the week will be extended as the building re-opens for weekends.
Cleaning and sanitization at the hotel will follow the American Hotel & Lodging Association guidelines for enhanced industry hotel cleaning standards in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the plan states glass barriers have been installed at the hotel's front desk and the Student Center's campus information desk.
