Dordt University’s campus will be closed to the public from Wednesday, November 25, to Tuesday, January 12. This includes the Rec Center, the Hulst Library, and the Campus Store. Purchases may still be made at the Campus Store’s website.

Dordt will close the campus to the public to limit community spread of Covid-19 as well as to ensure the safety of Dordt employees and remaining students as they continue work during the fall semester.

Select events, such as athletic and music events, will allow attendees. Please be advised that Dordt will limit the number of attendees due to Covid-19 regulations. We also ask that attendees not congregate when events conclude.

All GPAC events require spectators to wear face masks and maintain a physical distance of at least six feet with non-household members. In addition, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has issued a mask mandate for all large gatherings. Event attendees are required to wear their mask properly, covering the nose and mouth. The event will begin when masks are worn properly, and the event may be paused when masks are worn improperly.

Only registered campus visitors will be allowed to participate in campus visits.

As an institution of higher education committed to the Reformed Christian perspective, Dordt University equips students, faculty, alumni, and the broader community to work toward Christ-centered renewal in all aspects of contemporary life. Dordt, located in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive university named to the best college lists by The Wall Street Journal,, Washington Monthly, and Princeton Review.
