We are looking forward to having you on campus this fall! In preparing to welcome you to University Housing & Residence, our continued efforts will remain in place with regards to capacity, quarantine/isolation procedures, contact tracing and testing initiatives as we anticipate mitigation efforts will need to continue through the 2021-2022 academic year. Please read our University Housing Plan to gain some insight on measures taken for the 2020-2021 academic year. We expect there to be an update regarding mitigation procedures provided during the summer months for the upcoming year.
