Normandale recently sent out a message from the Dean of Students to all students registered for Spring Semester classes with an update regarding Campus Office Services. You can read the message below or click on the link in the first sentence. Due to the recent changes caused by the Omicron variant, campus service offices will be temporarily adjusting to a reduced in-person staffing model through January 31. You can still access services in-person and virtually based on your individual preference, though some services may temporarily have longer wait times based on staffing levels. We expect hours of service and general business operations to continue as normal during this time.

Please refer to the Normandale website and department webpages for the specific hours and instructions on accessing virtual services. Information about our campus Covid health and safety protocols can be found on the Normandale Covid webpage, and general information updates will continue to be communicated through your Normandale email account and the weekly Roar newsletter
