These are very difficult times, and, as such, the traditional residence life experience will be very different from what you are accustomed to due to the concerns around COVID-19. Our goal is to provide the best services possible to our residents but recognize that health and safety do require some sacrifice of privileges.

Due to serious hazards that COVID-19 presents, all students are expected to follow these regulations while living in campus housing. Our goal is to work as a community to help support one another and enforce these standards so that can we can maximize the health and well-being of every person at the Campus. Should students not strictly follow these directives, their housing contract may be subject to immediate termination.
