Student Well-Being Resources and Guidelines

Campus life looks different now. USU has created guidelines and policies to help protect you and all of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can create a safe, healthy environment.

University Guidelines

Wear A Mask

USU expects everyone on campus to wear a face covering when social distancing is difficult to maintain – that means any time you can't stay 6 feet from others.

Stay Home If You Are Sick

If you have any of these symptoms, please stay home and isolate until you are well:

  • Fever of 100.4 F or greater
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Sore throat
  • Muscle aches and chills
  • Decreased sense of smell of taste

Report if you have a confirmed diagnosis or are seeking testing.

Complete and submit the COVID-19 questionnaire to USU Risk Management to access support services through the COVID Care Team.

Practice social distancing

Maintain 6 feet away from those of other households.

Focus on preventative actions

Cover coughs and sneezes, wash your hands, avoid shaking hands, and clean frequently touched surfaces in your space.

Pledge to Protect USU

Student Involvement

Don’t let social distancing stop you from getting involved and connecting with other students. We can still be social, just at more distance! Each of these departments offers events, activities, and leadership opportunities.

Services and involvement opportunities are not available at all USU locations. Students attending Statewide Campuses can connect with their local success coordinator to learn about services and events available at their location.

Health and Wellness

Now more than ever, make sure you take care of yourself. USU values your health and wellness, and we’re here to help. Whether it's COVID-19-related or not, USU provides a variety of health and wellness services.


USU is dedicated to empowering safe and excellent in-person and remote teaching and learning for our students. Find information on course-delivery methods, technology recommendations, and academic resources at
