FALL 2020/COVID-19 Updates and Procedures
All procedures will be subject to change given the university's COVID-19 Standards & Guidelines.
The Pitt Global Hub functions as a meeting, event, and gathering space as defined by the University's Standards & Guidelines. University members are strongly encouraged to hold meetings, events, and gatherings remotely in all operational postures. In-person meetings, events, and gatherings should be held only when there is an identifiable function that cannot be achieved when held remotely and must adhere to the Shared Spaces Standards & Guidelines. Please read the full Meetings, Conferences, Events and Gatherings Standards & Guidelines here. Student groups should refer to the Student Activities Standards & Guidelines.
All reservation requests submitted through our website or via email will require further justification for an in-person gathering. The Pitt Global Hub reserves the right to reject or require amendements to any reservation request. Please also note that the Hub has been designated as a student study space for Fall 2020.
