Covid-19 vaccination requirements at the University of Waikato

Updated: 6 July 2022

A vaccine pass is no longer required for most campus users.

The University reviewed its vaccination requirement by carrying out a process similar to that taken before we introduced it, that is, conducting an updated risk assessment, and seeking feedback from students and staff.

The vaccination requirement at the University ended on 30 June 2022.

This is subject to the University continuing with other health and safety measures. A vaccination requirement remains for some groups of campus users.

Groups still required to be vaccinated

A University vaccination requirement remains in place until 31 October 2022 for the following groups:

  • Staff and students in University accommodation
  • Staff and contractors in catering or food and beverage service roles

Staff and students working or studying in any Government-mandated areas will also still require a valid My Vaccine Pass.

When students provide verification of their vaccination status to us, this information is held in MyWaikato in accordance with privacy legislation.

If you are a student in any of the above groups and choose not to be vaccinated or not to share your vaccination status, you will be supported to choose online study options. Student support services will still be available to you online.
