COVID-19 Guidance & Requirements 

Effective Summer 2023

The State University of New York announced that a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer be mandated for students to attend SUNY’s 64 campuses, effective for summer courses, which coincides with the official end of the national public health emergency by President Biden’s administration.

  • Students enrolled in health-related programs must continue to provide proof of their primary COVID-19 vaccination. Documentation must be uploaded using the UB Student Health Services portal.
  • All UB students and employees are strongly encouraged to stay up to date with their vaccinations, including getting booster shots when eligible.
  • Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is not required to attend events at UB.

Please Respect Others
It is important to remember that some members of the campus community (students, faculty, staff, and visitors/guests) may choose to continue wearing face masks for any number of reasons. For example, some people have found that masking reduces allergies. Other individuals value masking as a way to remain healthy and prevent other respiratory illnesses. Some may just feel more comfortable wearing a mask. In addition, a mask should not be interpreted as a symbol of vaccination status. Welcoming and accepting those who wear masks on campus is an important part of being a caring and respectful community.
