We believe increased vaccinations and continued safety measures, such as masks and social distancing, have mitigated and will continue to mitigate the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. To maintain appropriate physical distancing, predetermined course sessions will be delivered online or have online activity.

We will continue to prioritize your safety by having reduced classroom seating and encouraging physical distancing throughout the building. Disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer will be available in all classrooms. We are currently requiring the use of filter masks (N95, KN95, or KF94) for indoor classes and other academic meetings. For indoor common areas such as hallways, computer labs, and the cafe, filter masks or surgical masks are acceptable.

Vaccination Requirement

Because we want everyone to be as safe and as healthy as possible, we have required all students and on-site faculty/staff to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. This includes an additional vaccination booster shot. Exemptions will be made for documented medical reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs. If you have vaccination access concerns, please contact Student Affairs as soon as possible. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated for 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.

Student Housing Open

DigiPen Housing is open for the full 2021-2022 academic year and requires students to be current on all required vaccinations, including COVID-19. Shuttles between campus and off-campus housing will be running at 50% capacity and sanitized between every run.
