Self-Assessment Questionnaire

Coming to Campus? To access campus you must:

  • be fully vaccinated
  • be partially vaccinated (as per the policy definition) and participating in the rapid antigen testing program
  • have an approved exemption in accordance with the vaccination policy to participate in the rapid antigen testing program
  • have submitted an exemption request in accordance with the vaccination policy and are awaiting a determination of their request and participating in the rapid antigen testing program

Here's what you need to do.

Prior to visiting the University of Windsor campus, students, employees, volunteers, contractors and visitors must complete a Self-Assessment Questionnaire, which includes providing proof of vaccination through an attestation confirmation code. This is required every day you attend campus.

Completing the questionnaire through The Safe Lancer App is the easiest way to obtain the required green (approved) QR code that will be used to scan when entering campus buildings. The questionnaire can also be completed through a webform. Upon completion of the webform version, you can print your approved badge QR code which can be used to scan at QR code scanners every time you enter a campus building.

A fillable/printable document (PDF) is also available. Use of this form requires verification of your approved status by a Safety Ambassador (or for employees, a supervisor or manager) stationed at designated building entrances. You may not enter a campus building through any other entrance or proceed past the QR code scanner without verification if using this paper copy.

Alternatively, visitors to campus can attend the on-campus COVID-19 Testing Centre (Katzman Hall in Vanier Hall) to have their vaccination records validated in person. Visitors who do not have the technology to complete the vaccine attestation survey or those who do not wish to upload their vaccination records may proceed to the COVID-19 Testing Centre, Monday to Friday (walk-in, 8 a.m. - 11 a.m., and by appointment from 1 p.m. to 4.m. by calling ext. 4549 or 4548) to have their proof of ID and vaccination records validated.  Health & Safety staff will review their records and provide them with a UWindsor Vaccination Attestation Card. This card can be presented to any student ambassador in place of the proof of vaccination code to be granted access into the buildings. Once the card is obtained, it can be used for subsequent visits however the paper copy of the screening questions will need to be completed every visit. PLEASE NOTE: If attending an event as a spectator (i.e. Lancers sporting events), you will be required to show proof of vaccination at the gate, as well as government-issued photo ID, per provincial requirements in addition to the Safe Lancer screening questions.
