Protecting Yourself and Others

If you feel ill, please stay home or in your resident hall room. Do not come to any NSU campus or building. Follow CDC guidelines, take care of yourself, and notify the COVID-19 case manager. To self-report positive COVID-19 results, email the COVID-19 case manager or report via the iShark mobile App. Self-Report Forms Voluntarily Report Vaccination Status

Latest University Updates on COVID-19

The course of the COVID-19 pandemic is about to change thanks to the welcome news that the FDA has given full approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

Millions of Americans have already been safely vaccinated, so if you haven’t been vaccinated yet, you can join them by visiting to find a vaccination site near you. Getting vaccinated helps keep all Sharks in our community safe.

Once you’re fully vaccinated, please take a moment to visit and report your status. All NSU employees are required to report that they have been fully vaccinated by Sept 20, unless they have received a waiver. To be fully vaccinated by the deadline, you need to receive your final vaccine dose no later than Sept 6.

For the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus:

The Department of Health vaccination site is on campus located at 7901 SW 36th Street, Suite 209 (Behind Wells Fargo).

Hours of Operation:

Saturday & Sunday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: 12:00 – 8:00 p.m.
If you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19, please contact

The Student Experience

What to Expect When On Campus

When you arrive on campus, you’ll notice we made some changes to help keep everyone as safe as possible – including informational posters, more hand-sanitizing stations, and safety plexiglass installations. At NSU, we pride ourselves on our commitment to serving a diverse student population. Grab lunch in the open air or set up a study group via Zoom. However you do your part, let's team up to keep our Sharks swimming in safe waters!
