Summer Testing

SUMMARY: Effective May 23, participation in the UNH testing program will be voluntary.

Drop boxes for the mandatory testing program are currently closed. They are scheduled to reopen for the voluntary testing program on May 23. 

  • Voluntary testing will be available to anyone in our UNH community, and regular testing is still encouraged for those who are immunocompromised or unvaccinated.
  • Anyone showing symptoms (sore throat, cough, congestion) is encouraged to drop a test or make an appointment with Health & Wellness.
  • If you test positive you are still required to isolate per Centers for Disease Control guidance.
  • A valid Wildcat Pass is no longer required beginning Monday, May 23.

SUMMARY: Masks are no longer required indoors at UNH. 

Masks are still required in health care facilities including Health & Wellness, as part of regular PPE in labs, and for individuals who were recently in isolation or quarantine and need to mask for 10 days.


  • Be respectful. Community members may still choose to wear a mask for various reasons. If someone asks you to wear a mask—including in the classroom—say yes if at all possible.
  • Stay home from work or class if you’re sick.

Isolation, Close Contacts, and Quarantine

SUMMARY: Please refer to the NH State Quarantine and Isolation guidelines page for details. There will be no COVID-related housing on campus during the summer. 

Vaccination & Boosters

SUMMARY: Vaccination and boosters for COVID-19 are strongly recommended as the best way to prevent severe cases of COVID-19 and the spread of COVID-19 on campus. Proof of vaccination and booster doses will affect your quarantine requirements.

If you received a COVID-19 booster, please upload your updated card to the MyHealth&Wellness portal as soon as possible.
