Featured FAQ

Does the UO require COVID-19 vaccinations for students, faculty, or staff?
Not at this time. We strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated. The UO is holding vaccine clinics for students and employees.

The UO will continue to track public health requirements and guidance, best practices, vaccine availability, and other factors in determining whether to require vaccines in the future for those engaging in face-to-face activities at the UO.
