COVID-19 Policies

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has developed numerous policies to ensure continuation of the University's teaching and research mission.

A list of policies follows. Please note that the work policies from the Dean of the Faculty and the Office of Human Resources require logging in through University central authentication.

Also, be aware that policies will be updated from time to time as the University responds to changing state regulations and other factors determining the response to the pandemic.

  • Vaccination Policy for Employees (including all Faculty and Staff) — All employees of Princeton University must provide proof of having received a full course of an approved COVID-19 vaccine. Employees may request an accommodation (e.g., an exemption) to this requirement based on their disability/medical condition or sincerely-held religious belief  
  • Gatherings, meetings and events — The Gatherings Review Team must review and approve requests for gatherings of greater than 25 people indoors and 100 people outdoors. Gatherings of 25 or fewer people indoors and 100 or fewer outdoors do not need approval if all participants are otherwise authorized to be on campus.  
  • Visitors — In order to support efforts to contain virus transmission, visitors (as defined by the policy) to any campus building must submit a visitor request form and receive prior approval from Environmental Health and Safety.
  • Communicable diseases — Princeton University seeks to address communicable disease in a responsible and timely manner, consistent with applicable public health guidance and legal requirements, taking into account factors such as the nature of the condition, the severity of the condition, the health and well-being of our campus community, and privacy considerations of our campus community.
  • Face coverings – All faculty, staff, students, and visitors must wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth whenever in buildings or on property occupied by Princeton University. Face coverings are no longer required outdoors.
  • Contractors and Vendors — All University Contractors and Vendors who provide services on campus or in University Property must comply with New Jersey Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines, all applicable Executive Orders issued by the Governor of New Jersey, and any additional requirements and instructions provided by the University representative with oversight responsibility over their engagement.
