- Masks are required in all Pacific University common indoor and outdoor settings where physical distance is not possible. Learn more about specific mask guidelines.
- Vaccination is required for all Pacific University students and employees. Learn more about vaccination requirements, exemptions and availability.
- Guests at campus events also are expected to be vaccinated and to follow all university COVID protocols. While exceptions to the vaccination requirement may be made for patients of Pacific University health clinics, students and families in the Early Learning Community, or other small groups, Pacific may request proof of vaccination at larger events (including athletics events).
We will continue to assess the spread of the novel coronavirus and its variants, with the intention of continuing in-person teaching, learning, research and university events.
Masks will be required indoors across Pacific’s campuses, except in private office or lab spaces, residence hall rooms, or while eating or drinking. Students and employees, submit your vaccine or exemption documentation immediately. Learn more about Pacific's COVID-19 protocols and precautions.
The CDC now encourages everyone — vaccinated or unvaccinated — to wear a face mask indoors in public areas where there is substantial or high transmission. While Pacific University is not implementing new mask mandates at this time, we strongly encourage all members of our community to follow this CDC guidance.
