University to eliminate on-campus mask requirement June 1 in alignment with City of Milwaukee

In alignment with the City of Milwaukee Health Department’s action to end the citywide mask mandate on June 1, Marquette University will eliminate our on-campus mask requirement, also effective June 1.

While there will no longer be a mask requirement in place, we support guidance from health officials that mask wearing indoors decreases the spread of COVID-19.  We encourage members of our community who are unvaccinated, immunocompromised or at high risk for COVID-19 complications to continue wearing a mask while indoors.


  • Mask wearing will continue to be required in health care settings, including on-campus clinics, and in all modes of public transportation including Marquette LIMOs.
  • The Marquette Child Care Center will also maintain mask wearing as required by the Department of Children and Families.

Effective June 1, the City has also lifted capacity restrictions, and signage around campus will be removed accordingly. However, current in-person summer classes are set for physical distancing and will remain that way for the duration of the class.

Additionally, now that anyone 12 and older is eligible to be vaccinated in Wisconsin, Marquette strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 aligns with our Catholic, Jesuit mission, and protects you, your family and friends and our broader Marquette communities.

The Medical Clinic has the Johnson & Johnson vaccine available. In addition to students, faculty and staff, spouses and dependents age 18 and over are also eligible to receive vaccines on campus.

You may call the Medical Clinic at 414-288-7184 to schedule an appointment. Appointments are available through June 20.
