How Anna Maria College is responding to COVID-19

As COVID-19 continues to affect lives across the globe, the senior management team at Anna Maria College has been proactively working with students, faculty, and staff in preparation for the changes that are occurring on a daily, if not hourly basis. In order to keep you as informed as possible, we have assembled a list of actions that we are taking to protect our community during these unprecedented times.

Please check back often for updates.


Residence Halls

Residence Halls will be closed on Sunday, March 22 for the rest of the semester. An email was sent to all residential students on March 18 with details about the move-out process. Students with extenuating circumstances that restrict their ability to go home at this time must email Jessica Eckstrom Director of Residence Life or call (508) 849-3271. Stay connected with Residence Life staff on Instagram at @reslife_amc to participate in virtual hall programs. The 2020-2021 Housing Selection process will be rescheduled for later in the semester and ask that you check back for detailed updates.


The Health and Counseling Office

The Health and Counseling Office remains open and available to students. For the time being we are working remotely with students, using telephone, video technologies and email. We encourage students to contact with us with any questions or concerns. Telehealth 24/7 is also available for students who are covered under Anna Maria College student health insurance, click here.


The Campus Ministry Office

The Campus Ministry Office will be open remotely and providing spiritual guidance and support through virtual programming and content for the remainder of the semester. Please check our Instagram and Facebook pages as well as your email for regular updates. If you are looking for spiritual support during this time, please email Melissa LaNeve or Fr. David Cotter or call (508) 849-3205.


Human Resources

Anna Maria College remains open as we have much work to do. We find ourselves in a situation that is, quite literally, beyond our control. There are many circumstances that have or will continue to present themselves for our employees and that will inform personal decisions for minimizing risk of exposure. Please consult your supervisor if you wish to explore flexible work options. Anna Maria College employees who feel that they are at risk due to underlying health conditions or have additional questions should contact Human Resources by email at or at (508) 849-3444.


Athletic Events/Facilities

Consistent with recent NCAA and Great Northeast Conference announcements, all athletic activities, intramurals and club sports are canceled for the spring semester. Student-athletes should follow the same procedures outlined for all non-athlete students. Issues related to student-athlete eligibility related to the cancellations will be communicated as they are developed and communicated by the NCAA. All athletic facilities are closed to the public, including the Fuller Activities Center Gym, the Fuller Activities Fitness Center, and Caparso Field.


College Events

Anna Maria College has suspended all events for the remainder of the spring semester.
The Anna Maria College 2020 Commencement has been rescheduled and will be held on August 22, 2020. A Mass of Celebration will begin the day followed by the commencement ceremony on our beautiful campus. The Board of Trustees will host a congratulatory social following the ceremony for you, your family, and friends to celebrate the day together. This is an exciting day for you and we will make sure it is a day you will remember. Please check the commencement information page periodically for updates. We hope that by then that COVID-19 will not disrupt our plans.


Information Technology Department

During this difficult time, the Information Technology department is trying to be as responsive as possible. In order to help streamline communications, when you have a question, need help, or otherwise need to contact IT, please contact



Anna Maria College has been making special efforts to increase cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surface areas in all academic buildings as well as social common areas. This has included electrostatic spraying, which began in the fall semester, a process that involves applying an electric charge to a disinfectant liquid in order to cover surfaces to kill viruses and bacteria. Finally, the College has also deployed extra hand sanitizing stations across campus for the use of all community members.
