Saint Anselm College allows visitors on campus, including access to college buildings and the Abbey Church; access to performances, activities and exhibits; access to athletic events; and access to the grounds for walking and recreational activities.

Mitigation of potential spread of the COVID virus and in particular the delta variant remains an important priority for the College. For the protection of the College community, at this time masks are required at indoor college events where visitors and guests are in attendance. Masks are required for all patrons of the Dana Center, indoor sporting events, and funerals held in the Abbey Church. Groups seeking rental space from the college, performers or speakers, guest lecturers, alumni events, and weddings will be treated on a case-by-case basis. The COVID Response Group in conjunction with Events Management and the appropriate campus sponsors will review all event requests with external visitors/guests.

We ask that people on campus continue to carry a mask and respect any request to wear the mask during in-person meetings or when outdoor social distancing is not possible, regardless of vaccination status. Please remember that people may choose to continue to wear masks for a variety of reasons, and that wearing a mask is not necessarily an indicator of vaccine status. 

Guests and visitors are allowed to attend Mass in the Abbey Church. Capacity and social distancing will be guided by both the Diocese of Manchester regulations and those of Saint Anselm College. Wedding capacity likewise will follow the Diocesan and College guidance. Please visit Saint Anselm Abbey’s COVID response page for ongoing updates:

For prospective students and athletic recruits, official visits will continue to be permitted based on state and local health guidelines and health screening protocols. Students wishing to tour the campus may schedule a visit here. Athletic recruits also will follow NCAA, NE10 and NEWHA recruiting policies.
