Mandatory mask and vaccination requirements

Memorial University is excited to welcome all students, faculty, and staff back to its campuses.

The Memorial experience is about a vibrant, engaged campus community coming together to advance teaching, learning, and research. This cannot happen without collaboration, consultation and action to live up to the aspirations of our strategic plan, Transforming our Horizons. This plan specifically calls for Memorial to prioritize care, wellbeing and support for students, faculty and staff and recognizes our commitment to the communities in which we operate.

As a part of this commitment, and our shared responsibility to keep each other and our extended families safe during the upcoming school year, we are implementing two new measures for the university community:

  1. COVID-19 vaccines are required for all students, faculty and staff.
  2. As of Aug. 23, masks will be required on all Memorial campuses in all indoor spaces.
