Information for students, faculty, and staff about the Spring 2022 semester at Bowdoin.


  • First and foremost,  the health and safety  of students, faculty, staff, and our neighbors in the Brunswick community;
  • Providing  an excellent Bowdoin education  to every student;
  • Strengthening the bonds  of our community; and
  • Being  good stewards of our financial resources.  

Spring 2022 Overview

  • The knowledge we have acquired in the past and the tools now at our disposal will allow us to achieve our goals with a different approach, one that acknowledges that the virus will be with us for the foreseeable future, that recognizes the significantly reduced health risks for a fully vaccinated campus, and that will allow us to begin to move back to a campus and college experience that is more normal.
  • All students will be on campus and classes (after arrival week) will be taught in person.
  • All members of the campus community (students, faculty, and staff) are required to be fully vaccinated and must have received their booster shot for COVID-19 when eligible. The only exemptions have been granted for medical reasons for students (and legitimate medical or religious reasons in the case of employees). 
  • The Bowdoin College calendar for the 2021-2022 academic year is available on the academic affairs site.
  • Please visit the Current Guidelines page for the latest information about campus guidelines and restrictions and the Spring 2022 FAQ  for more complete information for the spring semester.
