Emergency Visitors to Northwestern

There are many reasons why people who aren’t faculty, staff, or students of Northwestern may need to visit campus. To help with the University’s contact tracing efforts and ensure those with potential COVID-19 symptoms stay home, Northwestern requires visitors to register at least 48 hours prior to reporting to campus, receive approval, and to complete a daily health survey for each day they are on campus. For more information regarding this, please see the COVID-19 Visitors Policy.

Please note, if you are visiting our Chicago campus, the Chicago Department of Public Health has issued a mandatory 14-day quarantine if you are traveling from certain states.
