As of August 9, the University has reinstated a masking requirement for all indoor campus spaces. You can read about all current University COVID-19 policies in detail on the University’s COVID-19 Resource Center, but here are some quick answers to questions you may have:

Do I need to wear a mask in library spaces?

Yes. This falls under the current University masking requirements, regardless of your vaccination status.

Do I have to prove I have been vaccinated?

No. However, students are required to be vaccinated or have proper proof of exemption for the 2021–22 school year. Additionally, all faculty and staff must report their vaccination status. Unvaccinated employees will be subject to regular COVID-19 testing starting September 20.

Is physical distancing still required?

No. In fact, we’re currently beginning to plan for the return of removed furniture and the removal of safety stickers on the floors and tables.

Is the University allowing campus visitors?


Are there still spaces only open by appointment?
