Student Conduct & COVID-19

For more information on the Student Conduct Process and COVID-19 updates, please see below.

Our campus is implementing a progressive engagement and student conduct approach that is in alignment with appropriate policies and processes for students. While our focus is on educating students about applicable policies and procedures and helping them engage in responsible decision making, egregious behaviors, such as demonstrating an intentional disregard for the health and safety of the community, are grounds for suspension or expulsion from the University of California.

The Office of Student Conduct will be following up on neighborhood concerns, providing relevant updates and supporting off-campus students.

Regular updates are shared on the Return to Learn website, including detailed information on Campus Guidelines. Reports related to student conduct can be submitted via the Office of Student Conduct website, please send any questions to studentconduct@ucsd.edu.


The Student COVID-19 Compliance team, in collaboration with the Office of Student Conduct, was developed in order to  promoting student compliance with the UC San Diego COVID-19 Testing Program, UC San Diego Facial Coverings Policy, UC Vaccine Mandate, and other, COVID-19 related student policies.

This office receives and processes reports of student non-compliance with COVID-related policies, and offers consulting and advising to the greater UC San Diego community on the enforcement of such policies.


Please visit our Student COVID-19 Compliance page for the most up to date information on current COVID-19 policies and procedures or reach via email at studentcovidcompliance@ucsd.edu

About the Program

UC San Diego’s Return to Learn Program aims to broadly test students, faculty and staff on campus on a recurring basis for presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. This evidence-based program, which includes plans for contact tracing and isolation housing for on-campus resident students who test positive for the virus, is intended to better position UC San Diego to resume in-person activities when fall classes begin in September 2020.

Students in on-campus housing are encouraged to participate in the initial phase of UC San Diego’s innovative COVID-19 screening program.

To learn more or see if you are eligible to participate, see Return to Learn Program.
