The University of Michigan will require a COVID-19 vaccination for students living in dormitories on the Ann Arbor campus this fall
ANN ARBOR, me. – The University of Michigan announced on Friday that students who plan to live in college dormitories on the Ann Arbor campus this fall will need to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Students staying on campus in the fall must provide proof of vaccination by July 15.
The new requirement, which provides exemptions and only applies to students living in dormitories and other student residences, was enacted by Vice President of Student Life Martino Harmon during the university’s weekly COVID-19 briefing.
“We know that widespread vaccination is the only way to return to a normal and robust life on campus. And we want to offer the students a living environment in the coming fall that is as close as possible to the fall of 2019 before COVID-19, ”said Harmon. “This is not a mandate to be vaccinated, but a decision to live in a community life and therefore choose to be vaccinated.”
Here, too, students must present proof of vaccination or an approved waiver by July 15 so that they can move into their assigned room. Michigan Housing will be sharing more details directly with students in the coming weeks.
