Spring semester

As the semester winds down, UW–Madison continues to provide COVID-19 testing as part of the Safer Badgers program while also encouraging COVID-19 vaccinations.

A green Badger Badge is required for employees and students to gain access to campus buildings. Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, should continue to follow all health and safety policies including wearing a mask and practicing physical distancing.

Check the campus operations webpage for status updates.
