The health and well-being of our community is Northwestern's highest priority. As such, Northwestern University may modify expectations at any time as guidance from federal, state, and local governments an/or the University evolves. Substantive modifications will be communicated to students via email and other methods, including the University's COVID-19 website.

If residing in University housing, you will review the COVID-19 Policies for On-Campus Students and follow the expectations set forth therein. Students with a disability in need of a reasonable accommodation are expected to contact AccessibleNU to go through the accommodation process.

COVID-19 vaccination will still be required for students in most clinical programs to comply with clinical site requirements. All Feinberg School of Medicine students are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  For more information on all vaccination requirements, as well as additional COVID-19 guidance, please review the Immunization Requirements by Student Group and the Feinberg School of Medicine Guidance.

If you have questions, you may raise them with the appropriate University office. Northwestern cannot control risks associated with COVID-19 or gurantee that the campus (including any building) is free of the virus, or that you will not be exposed to COVID-19, and that such exposure may result in illness and/or disruption to your student experience.
