If you’re planning to live, work, take classes on campus, or utilize campus facilities during the spring semester, you must follow these steps starting no later than 1/18 if your first day on campus is 2/1.*
* Students whose on-campus commitments begin earlier than February 1 may have different requirements.
Starting two weeks before their planned return to campus, all students, faculty and staff must complete a daily screening via the Daily Health Check to evaluate for travel history, COVID-19 history and COVID-19 symptoms.
Students will also be required to continue completing the Daily Health Check throughout winter session and the spring semester if they live on campus, take one or more classes with an on-campus component, work on campus or use on-campus services such as dining, libraries or fitness facilities. Faculty and staff who plan to be on campus are also required to complete the Daily Health Check but only on those specific days.
Text reminders help ensure you never miss a Daily Health Check — and give you easy access to display your Access Pass Badge while you're coming onto campus.
Before spring semester begins, students planning to live, work or take classes on campus, or utilize campus facilities such as libraries, fitness/recreation or dining halls, must complete a precautionary quarantine starting seven days prior to their return to campus. Before arriving on campus, students must affirm via HUB attestation that they have done so.
Before arriving on campus, students must login to HUB to submit their seven-day precautionary quarantine attestation.
Per the SUNY mandate, limited exemptions to this precautionary quarantine requirement will be made for the following students:
Free campus testing will be available by appointment weekdays from 1/25-2/5 for eligible students. Students may also submit outside test results.
