Dear Northeastern community: 

As part of our continuing commitment to the health and safety of the Northeastern community, Northeastern is updating its protocols to require full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for external visitors attending indoor events. This guidance applies across all of Northeastern’s North American campuses.  

All external visitors 12 and older who attend campus indoor events, including indoor athletics events and single-day conferences, are required to present one of the following forms of documentation: 

Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result is not required for brief campus visits, such as for an admissions tour or for a one-time meeting. Please see the events protocol and the visitors protocol for more information on the requirements. All campus visitors are also expected to follow Northeastern’s face covering requirement. 

Measures like this help us safely welcome guests to our campuses while promoting the health of our community. Thank you in advance for communicating these requirements as you welcome campus visitors and as you plan events.

Chancellor and Senior Vice President for Learning
