The day-to-day key for accessing NYU facilities, academic activities, and events is the Violet Go. Violet Go automatically determines if a user has complied with NYU’s vaccination requirements, and only produces a regular (violet) pass for those who are compliant.
Those with valid exemptions are also deemed compliant, and thus can access the Violet Go pass.
However, there will be a small number of situations in which access must be limited to those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and boosted (once eligible and by NYU’s deadline) due to the public health risks involved. For those circumstances, we have created another access tool available through NYU Mobile: the NYU Vax Pass.
When you log in, the Vax Pass will automatically recognize if you are fully vaccinated and boosted, if appropriate. If you are, it will furnish you with the proper Vax Pass screen that you can display for entry to NYU events or facilities limited to those who have received the required vaccines. Additional details and instructions can be found below.IMPORTANT: No one is permitted to designate an University-sponsored activity or setting, on or off-campus, as limited to vaccinated-only individuals without receiving written approval from NYU’s COVID-19 Event Exceptions Request Team; only this team can designate an event as being limited to vaccinated-only members of the NYU community rather than members of the community who are compliant with University vaccination rules. If you think there is an essential justification for a vaccinated-only designation, email firstname.lastname@example.org
After logging in, if you meet all of the criteria, you will receive a date-stamped email with a violet “VAX PASS.”
- If you intend to participate in an NYU-sponsored vaccinated-only activity that has been designated by the COVID-19 Event Exceptions Request Team, please follow any specific instructions provided to you by the sponsor/organizer citing when and how you will be expected to present the Vax Pass.
- In many instances, you will be expected to present your violet pass upon arrival; please complete the Vax Pass before departing for the event to prevent delay in entering the event.
- In other instances, you may be required to submit your violet Vax Pass in advance of the engagement.
- If you intend to enter an NYU vaccinated-only setting that has been designated by the COVID-19 Event Exceptions Request Team, please complete the Vax Pass before leaving home in order to prevent delay in entering the setting.
