COVID-19 policies and information for students

We all have part to play in keeping the Pack healthy. Each of us must take personal responsibility for things we can control: COVID-19 self-education, wearing face coverings, personal hygiene (hand washing) and following University policies and procedures and self-monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms.

Required COVID-19 vaccinations

On August 20, 2021, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health approved COVID-19 vaccine requirements for the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) students. All undergraduate and graduate students who plan on enrolling for the Spring 2022 semester are required to provide documentation of a completed vaccination series against COVID-19 before enrolling.

Get your COVID-19 vaccine

Free COVID-19 vaccinations are available through the Student Health Center. Call (775) 784-6598 to schedule your appointment. The scheduling tool is a statewide platform for appointments in Nevada. Vaccine appointments can also be made using Washoe County’s portal, or with other community providers.

COVID-19 testing

The Student Health Center is offering free daily COVID-19 testing from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, to students, faculty and staff. No appointment necessary. Bring your NSHE ID number and complete a registration form prior to testing.

Free testing is also offered through the Washoe County Health District.

Face coverings

Regardless of vaccination status, all students, employees, and members of the public must wear masks indoors. Students, employees, and members of the public, who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are also still required to wear face coverings outdoors while on campus, irrespective of whether other individuals are present.

Social distancing

There are no social distancing requirements in Nevada or at the University.
