Continued Phased Campus Return

We are excited to welcome you back for the spring 2022 semester. As always, the safety and well-being of our students and university community are our chief concerns. In all of our plans, we will remain flexible and respond accordingly to updated recommendations at the federal, state, and local levels.

To access the Long Island and New York City campuses, all students, faculty, and staff must:

  • Be vaccinated and upload proof of vaccination. Proof of vaccination should be uploaded here.
  • Wear masks indoors in public areas and classrooms, irrespective of vaccination status. Masks should cover both your nose and your mouth. We strongly recommend KN95 or N95 masks or, at a minimum, surgical masks.
  • Complete an online COVID-19 health screen each day prior to arriving on campus. You can access the Health Screen on the my.nyit.edu portal.

Everyone wishing to access the Long Island and New York City campuses is required to show their COVID-19 Health Screen to New York Tech security guards each day upon entry.

As we look forward to returning to campus for spring 2022, we are excited to share the following details:

  • Health and Safety Protocols: We continue to adjust our protocols as new recommendations and guidelines become available from local, state, and federal agencies. Everyone at our New York campuses are required to be fully vaccinated. Individuals can upload proof of vaccination here. We also emphasize the role of personal responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of all community members.
  • LEAD Plan and Campus Operations: New York Tech’s LEAD plan, implemented in 2020, continues to support all required health protocols for building layouts, equipment, scheduling, and disinfectant strategies. /li>
  • Learning Modalities: We continue our plan to offer courses in a variety of modalities, providing students flexibility and options in how and where they take their courses: in-person, online, blended, and hybrid-remote.
  • Campus Facilities: In addition to making necessary changes in response to COVID-19, we’ve also made many new enhancements ranging from new eateries and dining options, new indoor and outdoor meeting and study spaces, improvements to classroom spaces and technology, and much more.
  • Campus Experience Committee: We’ve also created a new group of students, staff, and faculty to help guide changes we continue to make on campus to enhance our community’s experience.
  • COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge: New York Tech has joined forces with nearly 100 colleges in New York State and more than 600 in the U.S. as part of this White House and U.S. Department of Education initiative to help end the pandemic by engaging and educating all community members, organizing to assist with vaccination efforts, and delivering vaccine access for all.

As always, we will rely on the advice and guidance of Chief Medical Officer Brian Harper, M.D., M.P.H., Chief Architect Suzanne Musho, and our Real Estate and Environmental Health & Safety Departments will work together to ensure consistent, appropriate actions and responses that continually reinforce the safety and health of everyone on our campuses while providing an outstanding learning and teaching experience.

We also emphasize and appreciate the role of personal responsibility for the safety and well-being of all community members.
