The University plans to strictly enforce the new safety and health rules in Academic Year 2020-2021. To that end, the University established various means of reporting noncompliance for all members of the NYU community. Any community member (faculty, staff, or student) may report noncompliant behavior via the University’s dedicated email alias, covidcompliance@nyu.edu.


In addition to using the covidcompliance@nyu.edu email, students may report noncompliant behavior to their Resident Assistant (RA) or to their school’s Dean of Students.


In addition to using the covidcompliance@nyu.edu email, faculty may report student compliance in the following ways:

  • Contacting their school’s Dean of Students
  • Reporting it to the Office of Student Conduct
  • Flagging the noncompliant student on NYU Connect (see instructions for NYU Connect).
    • Faculty can raise a flag in NYU Connect when they want to notify a student’s advisor or other administrators about a concern or need for additional support, including non compliance with the University’s public health guidelines.
    • Faculty can also add comments to the flag to provide additional context and share important details.
  • Calling the Student Affairs team (at 212-995-3377) to handle behavior that puts fellow students and/or other community members at imminent risk (please note the Student Affairs team members have to travel to the location; a time frame will be provided upon receipt of the call).

Faculty non-compliance can be reported to department chairs or dean’s offices.  Faculty may report staff noncompliance to their dean’s offices or Human Resource Officers.

Staff and Administrators

In addition to using the covidcompliance@nyu.edu email, staff members may report noncompliance to their supervisor or Human Resource Officer. Staff may report student noncompliance in the same ways that faculty can (listed above).

We recognize that COVID-19's effects have been disparate, and its impacts on poor communities and communities of color have been especially painful. In our response to the coronavius, NYU is committed to mitigating those impacts as well as ensuring no one in our community is ostracized, bullied, or mistreated due to ignorance about this disease.

If any member of our community believes they have experienced harassment or discrimination, we encourage them to report concerns to the Bias Response Line.
