COVID-19 Expectations for Students

were-n-together-2.jpgShared community standards remind us that we each have personal responsibility for actions that may affect our own health and the health of our friends, colleagues, and the broader Northwestern communities. As a condition of returning to campus or participate in any University program (even remotely), community members are required to follow policies and guidance issued by Northwestern.

Community Expectations-Northwestern has developed expectations for all enrolled students who return to campus or participate in any University program (even remotely). Living in Campus Housing-Expectations for undergraduate and graduate students living in on-campus residential housing, inclusive of fraternity and sorority life facilities.
Off-Campus Conduct-Expectations for students socializing off-campus. Wildcat Wellness– Required modified quarantine for students living on campus or in the Evanston area at the start of spring quarter.  
COVID-19 Testing-An important part of being on campus is compliance with Northwestern's testing protocols. Registered Student Organizations-Expectations and process for hosting organization sponsored events/programs.

Northwestern University may modify these expectations at any time as guidance from federal, state, and local governments and/or the University evolves.  As a reminder, in addition to the expectations set forth below, all students are expected to follow policies applicable to students, including those contained in the Student Handbook or your specific academic program. You can visit the Office of Community Standards COVID-19 FAQ  page for additional information.
