For the 2020–21 academic year, Kenyon is offering a mix of in-person and remote instruction, welcoming every student to campus for at least one semester. 

First-years, sophomores and new transfer students were in residence for the fall semester. Seniors, juniors and sophomores are in residence in the spring. We have reserved space on campus both semesters for students with exceptional circumstances, including international students, regardless of class year.

2021-2022 Update: Vaccination required for students

As of April 20, Kenyon is looking ahead with optimism that all students will be on campus next year — with a traditional academic calendar, in-person instruction and a full residential program that includes competitive athletics. Kenyon will require vaccination for students enrolling in the 2021-2022 academic year and for students who intend to be on campus this summer.

COVID Reporting Dashboard

Throughout the year, Kenyon will administer COVID-19 testing to approximately 25% of students in residence weekly. The College receives copies of test results and will update each weekday a dashboard of aggregate data.

Alert Status and Response

Many factors will be considered to assess the public health conditions on campus and guide the College’s response.

COVID-19 Signage

Kenyon has provided a mix of signs for common locations, preprinted signs available on request, PDF signs to download and print, and customizable signs.

Working Groups

Led by an overarching steering committee, a variety of working groups and subcommittees have been charged with looking after issues related to COVID-19, from campus life and public health to research and communications.
