Old Dominion University is currently offering classes both in-person and online, providing robust engagement and programming opportunities for the academic year.

  • Student Health Services will offer COVID-19 testing for asymptomatic and symptomatic students beginning Monday, August 29, 2022. Students may schedule a COVID-19 testing appointment via the Monarch Wellness portal at https://odu.edu/studenthealth/monarch-wellness-portal. Walk-ins are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Free COVID-19 test kits may be obtained through the U.S. federal government, or you may schedule a free test at https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus/protect-yourself/covid-19-testing/.
  • Masking is optional unless otherwise noted, such as in the Student Health Center or as part of academic program elements like clinicals that may require masks for participation. Masks will continue to be available at locations across campus.

These measures are aimed at both promoting and protecting the health and well-being of our immediate campus, the local community and the broader region.
