New Fall Hours • COVID-19 Update
The Silicon Valley Campus is open 4–9:30 p.m. on Monday–Friday and 8 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturday.
Proof of COVID vaccination to be mandatory for all campus visitors
Sept. 10, 2021—The University of California Office of the President has announced a systemwide policy to make COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory for all faculty, staff, academic appointees, and students accessing facilities at any UC campus this fall beginning Sept. 1. The requirement aims to protect the health of all members of the UC community as well as the general public as we transition from remote work and instruction back to UC campuses.
To visit the Silicon Valley Campus you will need to:
• PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINE
People will be asked to show proof of vaccination at the building entrance as well as a government photo ID. UCSC Silicon Valley Extension students can upload proof of vaccination online. Please do this right away.
You can find the link to upload your proof of vaccine as well the forms for medical or religious exceptions and deferment requests in the forms library.
Please disregard if you’re enrolled in an online course and don’t plan on visiting the building.
• FILL OUT A DAILY QUESTIONNAIRE
Every campus visitor is required to respond to a short daily symptom questionnaire. Students enrolled in Extension courses should fill out an online UCSC Visitor COVID-19 Symptom Check Questionnaire before entering the building and be prepared to show confirmation at the building entrance. We will also have printed copies of this questionnaire available at the building entrance. You must fill out the questionnaire each day you intend to visit campus.
• WEAR A MASK INSIDE THE BUILDING
Everyone must wear face coverings at all times when inside the Santa Clara building—regardless of vaccination status.
Please get your vaccine today!
