COVID-19 Info

Since the onset of the pandemic, NYU has successfully implemented a series of policies and procedures to keep our community safe and to respond rapidly to cases of COVID-19 positivity or potential exposure.

In Fall 2021, NYU implemented a vaccine requirement for all members of our community. In January 2022, the University additionally required all members of our community to receive a booster as soon as they become eligible.

NYU continues to work closely with public health officials and the city/state government to ensure we meet or exceed all guidance regarding safe practices.

GENERAL PUBLIC HEALTH POLICIES

COVID-19 TESTING

All residents should take a test to detect COVID-19 if they are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to someone with a positive test result.

NYU Students

Optional COVID-19 testing will be available for NYU students throughout the summer, as it is during the academic year. NYU offers PCR testing by appointment and residence halls will continue to provide access to Binx saliva tests at the resource center. NYU will not facilitate randomized required testing of the community during the Summer.

Non-NYU Students

Non-NYU students should use an outside provider (e.g., urgent care center or at-home antigen test) for testing needs. If test results are positive, please notify RLHS-COVID@nyu.edu.

IF YOU DEVELOP SYMPTOMS, TEST POSITIVE, OR ARE EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WITH COVID-19

If a resident develops symptoms or is exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19, in accordance with CDC guidelines, they should take a COVID-19 test. If the test result is positive, they must notify the University and isolate. NYU-affiliated residents who test positive for COVID-19 should report a positive test by completing the self-report form; non-NYU students should report a positive test by emailing RLHS-COVID@nyu.edu.

If a resident needs to isolate, they will do so in their own assigned bedroom.

Individuals who test negative do not need to quarantine or notify the University of their results.
