Indoor Athletic Event Vaccination Requirement

A message from Athletics Director Vaughn Williams

Oct. 4, 2021

Dear Bentley Community,

As we begin to look forward to indoor athletic events this fall, we are announcing today that all spectators will be required to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test administered within the past 72 hours. As all students, faculty and staff are required to be fully vaccinated—and those with approved medical or religious exemptions are required to test each week—simply showing your Bentley ID will provide sufficient proof for entry.

External guests age 12 and older must bring with them a valid form of identification as well as a physical or electronic copy of their CDC vaccination card or documentation of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken within three days of the event. Test results must be in the form of written paper or electronic medical documentation and must include the guest’s name, test result, type of test, entity issuing the result and the specimen collection date. As always, face coverings are required in the Bentley Arena and the Dana Center at all times.

Fans who do not comply with our venue policies will not be admitted. If you or someone in your party are experiencing symptoms prior to attending the contest, please do not attend. Tickets will be refundable. Any additional information will be posted once it becomes available on, and we will include all health and safety measures on For any questions, please contact

Please be on the lookout for instructions on how to purchase Bentley hockey tickets in the coming days. I know I speak for all of our student-athletes and coaches when I say that we are excited for fans to once again fill the stands to cheer on our home teams. These policies will help us to ensure we do so while safeguarding the health and well-being of our entire community, as well as campus visitors and guests.

Vaughn Williams
Director of Athletics
