New Campus Visitors Protocol

The University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements – that all members of the NYU community, including employees, faculty members, students, affiliates, vendors, and visitors, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and, once eligible, boosted – remain in force.

However, as of Monday, October 24, the University will no longer require visitors (including affiliates and vendors) to present proof of vaccination at the point of entry to NYU buildings or University-sponsored events. Still, all visitors must be prepared to present proof of compliance with the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements if asked to do so. 

The most up-to-date information about building access protocols for affiliates, vendors, and visitors is available on this webpage, which will be updated Monday, October 24.

As before, in addition to building- or school-specific access policies, all visitors must be sponsored by a current NYU employee or student and must present a valid, government-issued photo ID upon entry to NYU buildings (children under 18 may provide non-government identification).

This change in building access protocol means that:

  • The COVID-19 vaccination check stations, currently operating in the Gould Welcome Center, in the 2 MetroTech Center lobby, and at the College of Dentistry, will close; 
  • NYU’s visitor management system will still be used for sponsoring visitors, but will no longer be used for accepting COVID-19 vaccination and testing documentation; and
  • Event hosts will no longer need to apply to use the check-at-the-door process for verifying proof of vaccination against COVID-19.
