 Update Regarding COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements

Effective May 15, 2023, Gonzaga will no longer require its students, employees, contractors, or volunteers to provide evidence of COVID-19 vaccination. However, the University is strongly recommending full vaccination, a recommendation endorsed by the Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD).

Gonzaga University will, however, continue to support individual choice with respect to wearing of masks; furthermore, faculty will be supported by the University with respect to their determination of whether to require mask-wearing in their classrooms, labs, or other academic locations. 

Read the April 25 message from President McCulloh for important context and additional details.

Masking Policy

At this time, masks are generally not required on campus – indoors or outdoors – although this is subject to change. However, there may be certain locations or situations where masks are still required, so it is recommended that students, employees, and visitors carry a mask at all times. Additionally, individuals may choose wear a mask at any time, for any reason, free from harassment or questioning.
