Creating a Safe & Fulfilling Campus Experience
Making Your Safety & Health Our Priority
To keep this community as safe as possible, every single one of us must be wholly committed to the effort to limit the spread of the virus. We must look after one another and make choices that serve the public good—our driving value at DU, as vital today as ever.
For everyone visiting campus, we ask that you...
- Wear a face covering while on campus, including while outside.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Practice social distancing of six feet or more.
- Limit informal social gatherings to no more than five people.
- Monitor your symptoms each and every day.
- If you’re sick, stay home.
- If your symptoms get worse, go to the ER.
- If you test positive, call 303-871-COVD.

#DUYourPart by Downloading and Using Everbridge
Everbridge, DU’s contact tracing and symptom monitoring application, is now available for download. If you expect to be on campus and have been approved—i.e., if you are a student living on campus or have on-campus classes, or if you are faculty or staff designated to work on campus at this time—you will be able to download and log into Everbridge. For those not expected on campus just yet, you will not be able to log in.
We recommend that you read the instructions carefully before downloading Everbridge.
