Obie Safe. Caring for our community.


At Oberlin we flourish as a community—students, scholars, researchers, and creators, contributing to one another’s work and thriving together.

Effective August 2, 2021, the College is requiring that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear a mask indoors, unless you are in your residence or office with the door closed. We will continue to monitor the risk and adjust policies based on public health guidance.

Previous ObieSafe policies were lifted June 2 as recommended by the Ohio Department of Health. The community responded to the COVID-19 pandemic in a caring and responsible manner. We know you will continue to make good choices for yourself and others, as Obies always do!
