COVID-19 Information


Violet Go

Violet Go (replaces the Daily Screener), offers a once-and-done access pass for NYU buildings and NYU-sponsored activities to students, faculty, and employees who are compliant with NYU’s COVID-19 vaccination policy. NYU students, faculty, employees, visitors, vendors, and affiliates, regardless of vaccination status, are required to show a Violet Go pass each time they plan to enter an NYU academic or administrative building, or attend an NYU-sponsored activity.

COVID-19 Vaccine and Boosters

NYU requires that all members of the community and all visitors must provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and boosted with an FDA-authorized or WHO-listed vaccine (other than those who were approved for an exemption).

Visitors on Campus

All visitors, vendors, and affiliates must be sponsored by an NYU employee, fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and, once eligible, boosted.

NYU’s COVID Guidance for Everyone

COVID-19 Vaccine and Boosters: All members of the NYU community—students, faculty, employees, visitors, vendors, and affiliates—are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and boosted as soon as they are eligible, to upload proof of their vaccination to NYU's portal, and to have that vaccination documentation accepted by NYU.

Violet Go: Violet Go (replaces the Daily Screener), offers a once-and-done access pass for NYU buildings and NYU-sponsored activities to students, faculty, and employees who are compliant with NYU’s COVID-19 vaccination policy. NYU students, faculty, employees, visitors, vendors, and affiliates, regardless of vaccination status, are required to show a Violet Go pass each time they plan to enter an NYU academic or administrative building, or attend an NYU-sponsored activity.

Mask Information: Overall, mask-wearing will no longer be required effective Wednesday, September 28, 2022, with a few exceptions. Masking will be supported for those individuals who choose to do so.

Reporting a Positive COVID Test

Visitors on Campus: While all members of the NYU community, including affiliates, vendors, and visitors, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and, once eligible, boosted, 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 Stern buildings or Stern-sponsored events. Please note that all visitors will still need to be sponsored through the visitor management system, as NYU is centralizing a list of names to provide to Campus Safety; present a valid government-issued ID; and be prepared to present proof of compliance with the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements if asked to do so. 

Covid Testing

Support for COVID-19 Positive Tests, Symptoms, and Exposure
