COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement FAQs


Butler University students, faculty, and staff are no longer required to get the vaccine, but we still strongly recommend receiving the primary doses and/or boosters.

Yes. Because Butler has required COVID-19 vaccinations for students, faculty, and staff the past two years, the likelihood of sharing a room with an unvaccinated student is low. Still, not every student on campus can get vaccinated due to medical, religious, or other concerns, and it is important that we respect their situations and choices. Butler will not reveal a student’s vaccination status to another student, will not segregate students in the residence halls based on vaccination status, and will not accept requests to move students to new accommodations based on vaccination status.

All students, faculty, and staff can show proof that they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19. If you have previously sent a photo of your vaccination card to Health Services, there is no need to take further action. For those who have not yet sent their vaccination card to Health Services, you can easily upload a photo of your vaccination card into our system.
