Start of spring semester

The university has adopted new measures to enhance the safety of the campus community. The two main components of this program are expanded testing protocols and a new app, Safer Badgers. Students, faculty and staff will use the app to manage and track test results, and to access campus facilities and services.

Proof of recent negative test results will be needed in order to access campus facilities and services.
