COVID-19 and Visiting Campus

The safety of our students, faculty and staff remains our top priority during this unprecedented time.

Visiting Campus

As the local public health situation continues to improve, the University has resumed allowing visitors on campus. Beginning May 2, 2022, the Division of Continuing Education will open our buildings to visitors and look forward to welcoming summer students back to campus in June.

Health and Safety

To reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19, Harvard University Health Services (HUHS) and Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) have established protocols for visitors and for the Harvard community members who invite visitors to campus. We will follow these protocols and adapt them for DCE.

Harvard University requires some visitors to attest to their vaccination status and wellness prior to entering campus facilities.

Please review visitors who need to complete this self-assessment form before entering Harvard Division of Continuing Education (DCE) buildings. A green check mark will be emailed to you, indicating that you are clear to come to the DCE campus. Visitors should be prepared to present it when requested.
