A Commitment to Health & Safety
The University at Albany's plans are aligned with local, state and federal guidance and rooted in the safety of our students, employees and the public with which we interact. Our primary goal is to protect public health and continue our vital missions of education and research.
The University will continue to adjust UAlbany’s health and safety protocols according to current conditions, as it has done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Adjustments could include additional protocols for dining, events, recreational facilities, visitors and other aspects of campus life. Changes in protocols have been and will continue to be made incrementally, based on prevailing conditions.
Overview of UAlbany's Protocols
These protocols are subject to change as COVID-19 conditions change. Please review the rest of this website for detailed information and check back often for updates.
