On April 11, 2023, SUNY announced an end to the Emergency COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, ending a requirement that any student attending a SUNY college or university in-person be vaccinated. Starting with the 2023 summer semester, students can choose to live in the residence hall without receiving the COVID-19 vaccination.
