The University of Dubuque is closely monitoring and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our COVID-19 Recovery Task Force continually evaluates guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Iowa Department of Public Health, and other national, state, and local agencies. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our UD family both on campus and at our LIFE sites.

View A Safe Return for Spring 2022, UD's Commitment to providing a top-notch learning experience.

UD is committed to a face-to-face learning experience this academic year as we welcome a return to living, working, and studying together as a campus community.

  • Spring 2022 classes will be face-to-face with remote class attendance available in limited and short-term situations.
  • For the health and safety of our campus community, face coverings will now be required in all campus buildings until further notice as a precaution. This precaution will stay in place no longer than necessary until UD has a documented sense of virus activity as members of our community return to campus. 
  • UD strongly encourages students, faculty, and staff to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
    • ALL: Visit VaccineFinder to find locations that offer COVID-19 vaccines in the United States.
    • STUDENTS: Visit the Smeltzer-Kelly Student Health Center for access to COVID-19 vaccine options and testing.
  • Continue to evaluate for signs or symptoms of COVID-19 daily before coming to campus or leaving your residence hall. If your temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher, stay home or in your residence hall.
  • For COVID-19 questions, contact Amy Edmonds, vice president for operations, at 563.589.3642 or AEdmonds@dbq.edu
