UNB updates

While we continue to be grounded by our strength as one university with two campuses, the university experience will differ slightly for our various programs and campus communities.

Fall 2021

New Brunswick moved to the Green health alert level at 11:59 p.m. on July 30, 2021. Students are expected to be on campus to attend in-person course components.

The removal of occupancy capacity limits provides us with an opportunity to increase the number of students for in-person instruction at a given time. Learn more about what classrooms and labs may return to full capacity.

We will continue to provide flexibility and accommodations for students unable to attend in-person if there is a documented concern such as travel restrictions and COVID related health conditions. See COVID Student Academic Accommodations for more information.


UNB will implement mandatory, regular COVID-19 testing for all students, staff and faculty engaging in in-person classes and on-campus activities. Individuals who demonstrate proof of full vaccination are exempt from rapid testing. Learn more about COVID-19 rapid testing program at UNB.
