We are looking forward to seeing you in person, on campus. In preparing to welcome you to University Housing, we have updated our housing guidelines to help keep our residents and students safe and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Please read the University Housing Plan as students will be asked to sign an acknowledgement of the expanded procedures on move-in day. Some of the changes you will see in the attached Housing Plan include:

  • Overall occupancy has been reduced by 25% allowing for the availability of additional single-occupancy rooms if needed.
  • Cleaning procedures have been adjusted to accommodate more frequent cleaning of shared spaces and additional cleaning commitment is expected of residents in individual spaces.
  • A quarantine and isolation procedure has been developed to maintain the safety of our community should residents be exposed or test positive for COVID-19.

Spring 2021 Move-in is currently scheduled for Saturday, January 16 & Sunday January 17. Individual move-in time slots will be assigned to each student and will be communicated in January.
