The operation of facilities in the university including the central library, the information and computer center, and the dormitories were discontinued because of COVID-19. As social distancing is becoming less necessary, the facilities that had been suspended are gradually opening. Students can check announcements regarding the reopening of facilities on the Waggle website. Students should be careful because reopenings can be rescheduled depending on whether or not additional cases of COVID-19 occur. As the operation schedule changes depending on the COVID-19 situation, it is necessary to check before using facilities. Also, students should follow the school guidelines well.
The central library has been operating on a limited basis since May 11. It was opened to support services and to resolve complaints caused by long term closures. It is opening in three stages, and when COVID-19 is over, non-students and non-faculty members can also use it. Only the main entrance will be opened, a visitor record register will be kept, and body temperature will be checked. Students should not sit facing each other, or they should sit in a spot which maintains social distance. For user management and safety, the 24-hour reading room and group study room were not opened. The change in library operating rules can be found on Waggle notice.
The Maker-Agit located on the first floor of the library has also changed some rules. Members of Changwon National University (professors and students) are allowed to enter through the main entrance of the library, and a temperature check and a mask check is conducted. For non-students and non-faculty members of CWNU, facility tours and equipment training are not available. If they want to use the equipment, they must submit an application to get a prototypes made by 3D printers. The application can be found on the Maker-Agit website (http://maker-agit.kr/main/). Prototypes will be distributed Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the main gate of the library. The prototype can be found at a fixed place and time. Maker-Agit is not open on weekends and holidays.
According to the survey of remote class diagnosis by the Creative Convergence Education Center, some students used PC rooms to participate in classes. As a result, the information and computer center will be partially opened to support students who are unable to participate in classes from home. Opening the center will help students to take online classes more smoothly. After applying on the same date, students can use the PC from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday. Students can apply by logging into Waggle, clicking on the application for the PC lab, and visiting the center. If users don't wear a mask or have a fever (a temperature of more than 37.5 degrees), they can't enter the center. To maintain social distance between users, labs and seats are automatically assigned. Students must use their assigned PC practice rooms and seat numbers.
Many students use the fitness center to improve their physical strength and health. However, the fitness center services were stopped by the spread of COVID-19. The hours of the fitness center will be changed from July 1. Previously, the fitness center operated from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., all year round, but it will be opened only during the employee's resident hours for accident prevention and safety management at the gym. After the change, the fitness center will be open from 7:00 to 22:00 on weekdays, from 7:00 to 18:00 on Saturdays, and closed on Sundays and holidays. The fitness center is only available to professors, educational personnel, students, and students attending the sports classes. Non-students and non-faculty members are not allowed to enter.
CWNU dormitories were opened only for students who take classes involving lab experiments and practical subjects. All the dormitory residents had one room per person, and had to complete three dialy temperature checks. The entrance of non-residents is strictly restricted, and all students must wear a mask when entering the dormitories. The dormitory is doing its best to prevent infectious diseases for a safe and healthy community life in the dormitories. In addition, depending on the COVID-19 response level, the summer special opening will allocate one room for two students at the ‘crisis alert’ level, and one room per student at the ‘boundary’ and ‘severity’ levels. Notices may change in accordance with the COVID-19 related in-school response guidelines.
