Increased vaccinations and continued safety measures, such as masks and social distancing, helped mitigate the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we continue to monitor COVID-19, we encourage both students and staff to take appropriate steps to keeping themselves and their community safe.
In light of recent developments, we are no longer requiring the use of masks while attending class or while working with others in a lab, classroom, or workspace. Mask usage on campus is optional but still encouraged. See our mask policy and rules for additional details.
Per guidance provided by the King County Health Department based on current regulations, we are no longer requiring students and on-site faculty/staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Although optional, we still encourage everyone to get vaccinated for COVID-19. If you have vaccination access concerns, please contact Student Affairs.
DigiPen Housing is open for the full 2022-2023 academic year and requires students to be current on all required vaccinations, including COVID-19. If you plan to live in student housing, please refer to the Immunization Records of the Housing page for a list of required and recommended vaccinations for residents. If you do not meet these criteria, please contact Housing to request an immunization waiver.
