COVID-19 Safety Precautions

Prioritizing the health and safety of our guests and campus community is important to us. Please refrain from visiting campus if you do not feel well or if you have been in contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19.

Beginning March 1, Western Washington University will no longer require proof of vaccination or negative test for most on-campus events. COVID Safety guidelines for individual Admissions events may still require proof of vaccination or negative COVID test to attend. Specific requirements will be communicated during the registration process.
