2022 Return to Campus


  Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)


The approval of the COVID-19 Regulations and Required Vaccination Policy by Council on 26 November 2021 requires the University of the Free State (UFS) to operationalise the policy and to put measures in place to implement the policy as from 14 February 2022 to ensure the smooth return to campus of staff and students in 2022. 

The aim of the policy is to regulate access of staff, registered students, ad hoc contract workers, and visitors to all the university’s premises. The policy implies that the university does not force anyone to be vaccinated, but the institution has the right to require vaccination if anyone wants to access the institution’s premises in order to protect our staff and students.


In support of the policy, a new campus access system has been activated as from 9 December 2021. If you are vaccinated and your vaccination certificate has been uploaded to the UFS system, you will access campus with a permanent QR code and your staff/student campus access card. From 14 February 2022, all staff/registered students/visitors who are not vaccinated, must upload a negative SARS (COVID-19) PCR test here on a weekly basis, or have an approved exemption from the Vaccination Exemption Committee in order to access campus.
