Return to campus resources for the CSE community

In these rapidly-changing times, we're here for you!

Top things you need to know - updated 11/23/21


Proof of vaccination: Due to a federal contract mandate, the University is requiring all faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate student workers, adjuncts, professionals in training, and postdoctoral associates systemwide to submit proof of vaccination. A process for requesting a medical or religious exemption is available (with testing requirements for those that qualify for an exemption). Read more in Vice President Ken Horstman's Nov. 23 message.


Mask requirement on campus: Relying on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and with the advice of our University public health experts, the University of Minnesota is again requiring that all students, staff, faculty, contractors, and visitors to our campuses, offices, and facilities, statewide, wear facial coverings while indoors, regardless of vaccination status.. Learn more by visiting the face coverings information webpage.


Vaccination information: The University of Minnesota continues to strongly encourage all members of our community to get vaccinated. Our “Get the Vax 2.0 website” can help answer any questions you or your family may have about the vaccines. Vaccinations are available at Boynton Health.


Building access: The University is working to balance public access to campus with greater security and will offer limited public hours in certain buildings, while allowing some buildings to require a U Card to enter. All faculty, staff and students should carry their U Card at all times when on campus, to ensure access. If you need a U Card, avoid the lines, upload your photo, and pick up your card early, if possible.


Flexible staff schedules: As staff return to campus, the University of Minnesota issued Work. With Flexibility. guidance that governs flexible work arrangements. The college also offers guidance on flexible work arrangements in CSE that reinforces key aspects of the University’s approach and includes additional guidance at the college level. For more information on campus parking or public transit, visit the Parking and Transportation Services Return to Campus website.


Information about COVID-19 cases: Dean of the Medical School Jakub Tolar sent messages to students and faculty and staff about being informed and informing others about COVID-19 cases.
