Support, Resources, and Programming
The Division of Student Affairs aspires to serve as a trusted resource, helping to connect students with information regarding health, development, faith, residential life, extracurricular interests, and future endeavors. For questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
STUDENT BOOSTER REQUIREMENT
As an extension of the University’s existing COVID-19 vaccination requirement, the COVID-19 booster is also required of all students - undergraduate, graduate, and professional, including students studying or performing research remotely and/or virtually - who have been fully vaccinated for more than six months.
Students who have already received an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement are exempt from the booster requirement and do not need to reapply for a new exemption. Any student who does not already have an exemption but now needs one should email email@example.com.
ON-CAMPUS BOOSTER VACCINATION CLINIC
Current students may receive the booster vaccination at any off-campus location or at the University’s on-campus booster vaccination clinic Tuesday, Jan. 11 through Friday, Jan. 14. The clinic will be hosted inside Gate 2 of the Edmund P. Joyce Athletic & Convocation Center (Joyce Center) and will offer the Pfizer-BioNTech booster vaccine.
The hours of operation are as follows:
Tuesday, Jan. 11: Noon to 6 p.m.
Wednesday, Jan. 12 and Thursday, Jan. 13: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Friday, Jan. 14: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Students must register for an appointment at the on-campus clinic in advance. Register here.
Yesterday, the University experienced an issue with the registration system in which a large number of students were both unable to view available time slots and schedule an appointment. This issue has been resolved and students may once again register for the on-campus clinic. Students will receive a confirmation email after their registration has been completed.
OFF-CAMPUS BOOSTER VACCINES
If you were fully vaccinated for COVID-19 more than six months ago and would like to receive a booster shot before traveling for Christmas break or while you are away from campus, a variety of options are available. For a full list of Indiana COVID-19 vaccination sites, please click here.
Documentation for students who receive the booster at the on-campus clinic or at University Health Services (UHS) will be automatically uploaded to the student’s UHS patient portal. Students who receive the booster at an off-campus location, including the Notre Dame Wellness Center, must manually upload a picture of their vaccine card to their UHS patient portal. Instructions for uploading booster documentation can be found here.

Residence halls will close and all hall access will be turned off for the fall semester on Friday, Dec.17 at 12 p.m. Students will not have access to their residence hall rooms again until Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022 at 9 a.m. Please plan to depart from your hall 24 hours after your last final exam.
