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.

COVID-19 vaccinations

Free COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters 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 1 p.m., Monday-Friday, to students, faculty and staff. No appointment necessary. Free testing is also offered through the Washoe County Health District.

Face coverings

Based upon legal guidance provided by NSHE, our University lifted our campus mask mandate. Pursuant to Nevada law, NSHE employees, students and members of the public are not required to wear face coverings while inside NSHE buildings irrespective of vaccination status.

A note on transition to online instruction

Although unlikely, it should be noted that, if for some reason, the University were to move to online instruction during the academic year, there will be no refunds for students.
