Public Health Measures
Masks are required in public indoor spaces regardless of vaccination status. CU Boulder’s mask requirement page includes guidance on compliance and what to do if a student, employee or campus visitor is not wearing a mask.
- Boulder County Public Health recommends a snugly fit surgical mask, N95 or K95 when possible; however, cloth masks do meet the campus requirement.
CU Boulder is providing up to two N95 or KN95 masks to students, faculty and staff. They can be picked up at various distribution points around campus.
COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters
To comply with CU Boulder’s updated COVID-19 guidance, members of the campus community are required to receive a vaccine booster shot by Feb. 24 or five months after receiving the final dose of the original series, whichever is later.
Students, faculty and staff must upload proof of boosters or file for an exemption based on medical, ethical or moral grounds through the MyCUHealth portal. Individuals who previously submitted an exemption do not need to take further action at this time and will be considered in compliance with current university vaccine requirements.
Once you have submitted all required documentation, you will receive an automated confirmation email. If you have incomplete documentation or if additional information is needed, you will not receive a confirmation email and the immunizations team will contact you directly.
Only vaccines that are approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) will meet the CU vaccine requirements.
Boulder County Public Health (BCPH) is monitoring cases, outbreaks, hospitalization and other metrics and requires that all individuals 2+ wear masks in all indoor settings regardless of vaccination status during periods of high transmission.

We know that many of our students, faculty and staff have been affected by the Marshall Fire, and our university will do everything we can to provide support.
Student Emergency Fund
The fall 2021 application for the Student Emergency fund is open. The Student Emergency Fund provides support to CU Boulder students experiencing a crisis that could adversely affect their semester. The intent of the funding is to support students experiencing a temporary financial hardship as a result of COVID-19.
The funds are limited and not intended to provide ongoing relief for recurring expenses. Not all applications will be approved, even if a student meets the eligibility criteria.
