We're Stronger Together

Stronger Than Ever!

Lamar University is excited to welcome students back to campus in the fall. We will remain vigilant with tracking and reporting Covid-19 and its variants to ensure safe working and learning conditions. LU will continue to follow state and federal guidelines for a safe return to campus. Masks will not be required on campus in accordance with the Texas Governor’s executive orders outlined in GA-36.

We highly encourage all faculty, staff and students to remain vigilant and exercise personal accountability in ensuring the health and safety of our campus community. Vaccinations are strongly encouraged and offered free of charge through the Student Health Center on campus. Sanitization stations will remain present throughout campus for frequent handwashing and self-hygiene practices.

The majority of courses are being offered on campus for the Fall 2021 semester, however, as a large provider of online education LU continues to offer online and hybrid course offerings.

Our faculty, staff and students have demonstrated a resilient spirit, work ethic and commitment to excellence during these challenging times. We’re excited about enhancing in-person opportunities, offering on-campus events and student life programs as students move into residence halls beginning August 19.

Visiting Campus

We Can Have Fun, Be Productive AND Stay Safe

Keeping you safe and healthy is our top priority.  Working hand-in-hand with top medical and safety professionals and following the latest guidance from state health officials, we have designed a fall opening that prioritizes our community’s health while preserving the unique experience of university life.

In accordance with Governor Abbott's Executive Order GA 36, Lamar University will no longer require face masks or coverings to be worn on campus by any student, faculty, staff member, or guest.

We are committed to the health and safety of our campus community. The Student Health Center is offering free COVID-19 vaccines to all current students, faculty and staff. Appointments can be made online at lamar.edu/healthcenter.
