SPRING SEMESTER: Valid Wildcat Pass required

January 15, 2021


Dear Members of the University Community—

We’ve shared a lot of information this week in preparation for the safe and successful start of the spring semester; thank you for your patience and perseverance. Committing to all COVID-19 testing, signing the Wildcat Pledge, updating your profile, maintaining your testing schedule and following all state and federal public health guidelines will keep you and your fellow Wildcats safe, and your Wildcat Pass (WCP) valid.

A valid WCP is required for every member of our community—faculty, staff and students—to be on any one of our campuses for any reason. It is a tool to ensure you are compliant and allow you to access campus (offices, labs, classrooms), participate in any campus event, access the dining halls, Hamel Rec and other campus facilities. Review arrival and ongoing requirements for students here and ongoing requirements for faculty, staff and contractors here.

Check your pass now and check it every morning before you come to campus (note: you will need to login with your UNH IT ID otherwise known as single sign on). If you are compliant, your WCP will show a colorful symbol that fits the full screen of your mobile phone, computer or other electronic device. If you are not in compliance, you will receive a small text message instead of a full-screen symbol. That message will tell you why it is invalid and give you instructions to fix it. Do not come to campus until you have a valid WCP. Starting Monday, Jan. 25 (when arrival testing and test kit pickup begin), the first failure to convert an invalid WCP to valid within 24 hours will result in contact from the COVID response team. A second failure will result in a report to student conduct (for faculty and staff, to your supervisor). If an employee is working remotely their WCP is not expected to be valid.

Our goal is to keep our community as safe as we possibly can through 100% compliance. Thank you in advance for helping us to meet this goal #unhtogether.
