The health of our community is integral to our ability to have on-campus activity during the Fall academic term. Explore the University's safety procedures, health monitoring requirements and response protocols. 

Personal Accountability

Returning to campus means a steadfast commitment from each of us to safeguard our own health and that of those around us.

All community members are expected to regularly monitor their personal health status and notify the University if they have a positive COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure.

All health monitoring requirements

COVID-19 Testing

On-campus Testing is Available

All students must have a negative test before attending in-person activities or classes, and those in residence halls will participate in recurring testing. All students, faculty and staff currently on campus who believe they have COVID-19 symptoms can be tested on campus through a partnership between Northwestern University Health Service (NUHS) and Northwestern Medicine.
