Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update
We understand that the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak will impact your college decision. Our conversations with you, your families, and school communities continue to be very important to informing the ways in which we can be most responsive to these unexpected and evolving changes. We have provided answers (at the bottom of this page) to many questions we have received, and we will continue to communicate any updates as new information arises. As our own daily operations have been altered in New York City, we are ready to be as flexible as possible in providing a safe and successful transition to university life.

Starting with the Fall 2021 semester, Fordham University is requiring all students who are taking in-person classes, living in University housing, or entering the campus for any reason to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Additional details will be sent to you from University Health Services in the coming days, and you can find more information on the COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement webpage.

Please know that there are many dedicated, caring professionals across the university who are here to help. On behalf of all of them, we look forward to welcoming you to Fordham.

For continuing updates on Fordham campus operations during the pandemic, please review the comprehensive Fordham Forward plan.
