For information regarding NC State University’s testing protocols, please visit this site. If you have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, you no longer need to test to enter the Wilson College of Textiles facility. If you have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, you are still required to be tested within 7 days of entering the facility. If you are only entering the facility for a quick visit, you may get tested the same day as your visit. Testing can be done in the Shuttle Inn C-Store from 8 a.m. – noon each day until further notice.
Welcome back to campus! We are excited to have you back and thank you for adapting to the changes we’ve put in place to protect your health and safety. The best way to demonstrate your leadership and commitment to Wilson College is to responsibly Protect the Pack and follow NC State’s community standards.
For your own health and the health of others, we ask that all undergraduate and graduate students complete student safety training as we begin the semester. Accessing the training is easy: you will automatically be enrolled using this link to access the recording and then acknowledge the safety attestation. We must participate in the training and take our safety seriously as we work to ensure a successful semester for all of our students.
You will receive an e-certificate upon completion of the Wilson College COVID-19 Student Safety Training and be entered into a drawing to receive a small token of our appreciation.
Wilson College of Textiles’ policies and protocols for responding to the COVID-19 pandemic are rooted in safety for the entire college community.
Wear a face covering.
Until further notice, everyone is required to wear face masks in and around the Textiles Complex at all times. If you are not wearing a mask, you will be instructed to leave.
Practice good hand hygiene.
Wash hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds at a time with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use alcohol-based sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth at all times.
Maintain an appropriate physical distance from others.
Maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from others whenever possible. Follow signage directing traffic flow through building entrances, exits, elevators and other common areas, to minimize density.
Building Access: Your University ID Card is required for entry to the building between 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 a.m. You may not hold or prop open exterior doors for any other person.
Visitors, trainees, guests, pets, and family are not allowed in the Textiles Complex without permission from the Wilson College Pack Planning Team (email@example.com).
Classrooms: All classrooms will be cleaned daily, with focused attention on high touch surfaces. Sit on only those seats labeled “Sit Here”. To support efficient, effective contact tracing, sit in the same seat when possible; you may be assigned a seat to sit in by your instructor specifically for this purpose.
Meetings: In-person meetings in offices or conference rooms are not permitted at this time. Meetings should be held using virtual collaboration tools (e.g., Zoom, Google Meet, telephone, etc.).
Between Classes: Maintain appropriate physical distance and follow signage regarding places you can sit between classes.
Restrooms: The use of restrooms should be limited to two people per restroom at a given time. Wash your hands thoroughly afterward to reduce the potential transmission of the virus. Use a paper towel on the faucet handles and door handle.
Elevators: No more than two people may enter an elevator at a time, so please use the stairs whenever possible.
Dining: At this time, Port City Java and The Shuttle Inn are temporarily closed.
When sick, stay home.
Before coming to the Textiles Complex, self-assess your health daily for the following symptoms identified by the CDC: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, vomiting, or diarrhea. If you have symptoms, do not come to campus, and contact your medical provider. Notify your instructor if you need to miss class.
Follow all directions given by university officials and public health authorities,
including those related to contact tracing, monitoring and adhering to self-quarantining requirements if you have possible COVID-19 symptoms and/or have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

The Wilson College of Textiles would like to announce the Wilson College of Textiles Student Emergency Fund as a financial resource to provide assistance during these challenging times. The Student Emergency Fund was established by the 2018 Faculty & Staff Giving Ambassadors to help ensure that Wilson College of Textiles students have access to the support and resources needed to successfully recover from unexpected financial crises. The goal of these funds is to prevent one small emergency or unexpected expense from derailing a student’s progress towards a degree. The fund is made possible from generous donors committed to helping students in need achieve their goal of graduating from NC State. Please visit the StudentEmergency Fund website to learn more and apply. As a part of the application process, students are required to submit a funding application through the DASA Student Emergency Fund prior to submitting a funding application through the Wilson College of Textiles.
