MANDATORY COVID TESTING FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING IN-PERSON EVENTS

To enhance our ability to give UNT students the in-person experiences they are craving, UNT has added a COVID-19 testing component to all student organization and department in-person events and meetings. Beginning Wednesday, March 3, students attending events or meetings in person, regardless of size, must have a negative COVID-19 test result within seven days of the event or have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days. Those experiencing symptoms or with known exposure should quarantine until cleared by the UNT Contact Tracing Team. Testing will not be required at Commencement ceremonies and one-on-one meetings students have with faculty and staff. Read President Smatresk’s message to students.

Effective immediately, Event Applications for in-person activities must be submitted* at least 15 business days prior to the requested date to ensure there is enough time to get the activity through the review/approval, booking, and safety notification processes such that the student org is aware of the logistical details (ex., location) and has time to promote the safety guidelines to attendees prior to the activity.

*The Application is not considered “submitted” until both the President and Advisor approve it. Both will receive an automatically-generated email from "UNT Student Activities OrgSync" asking for their review and approval.

For more info, visit our COVID-19 events page.
