Working on campus or any UNH location? A Valid Wildcat Pass is Required for all Faculty / Staff

This is the latest information sent to employees via email as of February 16, 2021:

DURHAM EMPLOYEES ONLY: If you work 100% remote and will not be coming to campus, a valid Wildcat Pass is not needed. Please fill out this survey so you do not get reminders about your Wildcat Pass. If something changes and you must come to campus follow these instructions to get a test and valid Wildcat Pass



A valid Wildcat Pass is required for every member of our community—faculty, staff and studentsto 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.

  • February 16, 2021:  Review the latest announcement regarding the requirements from Kate Ziemer, Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs

Starting the week of February 22nd, all employees who have not opted out will receive automatic texts and emails when they are late for a test sample submission, and your Wildcat Pass will show invalid if you miss your test sample submission by more than 24 hours. You will be contacted by a supervisor if your Wildcat Pass is invalid two different times.

What is a Wildcat Pass?
The university created the Wildcat Pass tool to help members of its community keep track of their ongoing compliance status. If you are compliant, your Wildcat Pass 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 lets you know what you need to do to become compliant. 

How do I access my Wildcat Pass?
You can access Wildcat Pass at  https://covid-19.unh.edu/wildcatpass, via the UNH Mobile app OR by selecting it as a task in the UNH portal at https://my.unh.edu/.
