Important Notice

The University is requesting that all incoming students delay their arrival to campus until further notice. If you are a student who absolutely cannot delay your arrival to campus for the start of the 2022 spring semester due to travel plans or if you have extenuating circumstances that would prevent successful remote learning and will be arriving soon, follow these guidelines. (Note: These guidelines apply both to domestic and international arrivals.)


Effective Tuesday, August 10, 2021 the University of Rochester is reinstating an indoor face-masking requirement for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals for all University campuses and properties.

  • In on-campus student living spaces, students may be unmasked in their room with their roommate(s) or “family unit” (family units are defined in the FAQ). All other times, students should be masked.
