COVID-19 Information

Updated Jan. 3, 2021

We are excited to offer our students a vibrant, enriching in-person winter term and a world-class education for those learning remotely.  The majority of our undergraduate and graduate classes are fully in-person. Co-curricular experiences are a mix of remote, hybrid, and in-person formats depending on the situation.

Our approach has been and will continue to be consistent with university guidance.

Face coverings are required — regardless of vaccination status — in all buildings, including common areas of University residence halls, and on campus transportation.  

Testing Expectations Upon Arrival to Campus After the Holiday Break

All students living in the residence halls will be required to test for COVID-19 upon arrival to campus after the holiday break. All other students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to get tested upon returning to the area.

Personal Health & Safety

If you are sick, stay home.

Wear a face covering in all university buildings and on campus transportation.

Wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer.

Enhanced cleaning of high-traffic areas will occur during the day, and the entire Ross campus will receive a deep cleaning each night after hours.

Cleaning supplies are available throughout the Ross campus for people who want to clean surfaces on their own.

Spaces are available for individuals who develop symptoms while on campus.

Visitors and Guests

The Ross campus is open. However, visitors and guests are expected to complete ResponsiBLUE Guest, the daily COVID-19 system check tool, prior to accessing campus buildings. U-M policy also requires all individuals - both vaccinated and unvaccinated - to wear a face covering while in university buildings or on campus transit.

Executive Education

In-person programming has returned at the Executive Learning and Conference Center with enhanced safety features and protocols to ensure that participants can learn in a safe and engaging environment. As part of our learning community, program participants are expected to adhere to the school’s personal health and safety protocols and must be either vaccinated or receive an exemption and show proof of a negative test to attend. Digital courses and live virtual programs continue to be offered throughout the year.
