William Paterson University is committed to reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. To help ensure a safe and comfortable experience, we ask all visitors to adhere to the safety protocols outlined below. Events are being sold at full capacity. Please take your personal comfort level into consideration prior to purchasing tickets.

  • Advance Ticket purchase is strongly recommended via the online ticketing system or by calling the box office (973-720-2371). 
  • If you are feeling ill, we hope you stay safe and ask that you remain at home. 
  • WP is a mask-friendly campus. Masks are not required indoors. However, if you are exposed to COVID-19, we kindly ask that you wear a mask. We encourage individuals to wear a mask, especially if you or your family members are at risk for complications of COVID-19.
  • Please respect patrons who may wish to maintain a physical distance from other patrons.
  • Those who are unable to comply with these safety protocols will be asked to leave the premises.

We are confident in the comprehensive safety measures we have put into place. We now offer:

  • Hands-free hand sanitizer stations, located throughout the lobby to encourage proper hygiene.
  • Enhanced ventilation with state-of-the-art HEPA filters and UVC light.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols including use of CDC-approved disinfectants on high-touch areas.
  • Reduced common touchpoints such as touchless faucets and towel dispensers in the restrooms.
