Building Access Checklist

1. Be permitted on campus

Not all members of the NYU community are permitted to enter NYU academic and administrative buildings and in order to access campus you will first need to be approved. 

All students enrolled or maintaining matriculation within NYC for the current semester are automatically permitted. Students participating in the Go Local program within NYC are also included.

Faculty and employees, you must be on your school or divisions Returns Plan and may request access through your school or division HR officer.

Visitors, vendors, and affiliates of NYU can find more information about requesting access on the Campus Visitors page.

2. Get tested

Non-residential students and employees must get a COVID-19 test and result through Binx or NYU BioReference within 14 days prior to when you will first enter an NYU building. Residential students must submit a Binx saliva test kit weekly.

Visitors, vendors, and affiliates must also receive a negative COVID-19 diagnostic PCR test result in the 14 days prior to your visit (antibody and rapid tests are not acceptable).

3. Complete the Daily COVID-19 Screener before leaving home

Fill out the Daily COVID-19 Screener before you leave for campus (have a thermometer handy) and feel free to take a screenshot of the Daily Screener “PASS" confirmation so as not to hold up the line waiting to get into a building.

NOTE: it is important that you complete the screener while you are still home.  Do not wait until you are in transit or arrive on campus.

How might you lose access?

  • Failure to use the Daily Screener each day before you enter an NYU building
  • Failure to participate in required community testing
  • Violations of NYU's safety protocols, such as failure to wear a mask
  • You are deemed to pose a COVID-19 risk to the community (for example you test positive for COVID-19)
