COVID Safety Icons

As members of the NYU community, we have a commitment to the health and safety of our community. Community entails a sense of mutual responsibility to the welfare of each other at NYU and the broader communities in which we operate. By accepting membership in this community, students take responsibility for upholding this commitment in their own conduct and for recognizing and supporting this commitment in others. This commitment that we make to each other is especially important now, as the University faces new and evolving challenges while operating in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

NYU expects and requires its students to adhere to the highest standards by making decisions that demonstrate community and a deep respect for the rights and safety of others. This includes adherence to applicable policies and procedures, including: 

The University may utilize interim suspension and expedite the Student Conduct Procedures when addressing behavior that threatens the health and safety of others. Students who engage in, facilitate, or organize irresponsible and reckless behavior that puts the community at risk may face formal disciplinary action through the Office of Student Conduct (or appropriate university official). Sanctions may include restriction from campus (remote learning only), immediate removal from the residence halls and cancellation of the housing license, or suspension from the University.

This is a time when our entire community must demonstrate significant flexibility as to how, where, and when we study, work, and interact with others. We expect that students will behave in a mature and responsible manner, which encompasses accountability and responsible decision-making regarding health and safety.
