Coronavirus FAQs

Autumn 2021

We look forward to safely returning for in-person instruction and activities this autumn. Widespread vaccination is the only real way we can put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us and return to a more normal way of living, learning and working. Fortunately, vaccines are now readily available that have proven safe and highly effective, including through clinical trials in which UW faculty collaborated and during real-world experience. 

In order to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, academic personnel, staff and broader community, the University of Washington will require all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
