Important Housing Announcement – Monday, March 16, 2020

Dear Residents,

As you are aware after reading President Susan A. Cole’s email update today, all residence halls and dining options on campus will remain open. At this time, if you plan to remain in your residential space for the remainder of the spring semester, you are required to complete the following survey:

Go to Survey

If you’d like to partake in a check-out opportunity to collect your belongings, the Office of Residence Life will be emailing out tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, instructions on proper check-out procedures and check-out time frames specific to each residence hall in order to safely and effectively temporarily move residents out. During this coordinated move out opportunity, residents will be allowed to have guests assist with the move-out process at the designated time they are assigned.

If you wish to partake in this check-out opportunity you must:

  • Park in a designated parking spot located in any surface lot closest to your residence hall.
  • Once parked, you must go to your room to pack your belongings. It is important to ensure that any medications, essential needs, textbooks, class supplies and electronics that will support online academic success are packed and taken home.
  • Once belongings are packed, belongings should be moved to the lobby of your residence hall.
  • You can then move your car closer to your assigned residence hall to load belongings quickly and efficiently. University Police will be present to assist with traffic. Please Note: Someone must be present with your car at all times when loading.

As this is a rapidly changing situation, the University is still in discussions in regards to housing, parking and meal plan refunds. The University’s current goal right now is to ensure the health, safety and wellness of the campus community. An outcome on this decision will be made at a later date and residents will be notified accordingly.
