Campus Life

Campus Life and COVID-19

Engaging with Campus Life Remotely:

A staff member from Campus Life will be hosting drop in hours via Zoom Monday through Friday from 2:00 to 4:00pm EDT during which we will be able to answer questions. Please sign up for a time slot here so as not to interrupt another person’s drop-in time. If you think you need more than 15 minutes, please reserve more than one time slot.

Our working hours will continue to be from 9:00am to 6:00pm EDT. Any emails received during that time will be responded to swiftly and we are happy to schedule meetings over Zoom or phone either individually or in groups within those times. 

We are also available via Google Hangouts – just search for us from the Hangouts area (lower left corner) of your Bates Gmail. If you can’t find the Hangouts area, go into your Gmail settings, then select the Chat tab, and turn it on. Alternatively, you can download the Google Hangouts app from the App Store or Google Play and log-in with your Bates credentials. 

Finally, we understand that not everybody can always accommodate a time to meet between 9:00am to 6:00pm EDT. If you find yourself in this situation, please be in touch and we will be happy to find a time to connect.

What might you want to talk about?

  • Big picture planning for your club/org for next semester
  • Event planning for the fall
  • Ideas or questions about how to engage remotely with the Bates community
  • Anything else!

Who to be in touch with:

If you have been working with a specific Campus Life staff member or supervisor, please feel empowered to continue reaching out to them directly via email. For any general inquiries or if you are not sure who the applicable staff member is, please email

Reflecting the Bates Institutional Plan, Campus Life plays an integral role in the education of the whole person, a “process through which students become aware of their interests, community, and purpose in the world.” We deepen the student experience by providing resources and opportunities to explore interests through involvement in student clubs and organizations, social events and programs, skill building workshops, and employment opportunities. An equity and inclusion lens is foundational to our work – we actively aspire to dismantle -isms and -phobias, and partner with students to do the same in their areas of influence.
