Are you bringing visitors to campus?

The university requires that all visitors provide proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID test taken within the last 24 hour period.

On the day of the visit, visitors are also required to do a campus check-in. It is the responsibility of the person who invited them (or delegate) to ensure that they have completed these steps prior to arrival.
