Developments related to COVID-19 are challenging to predict that far in advance, specifically for our campus environment. There is a possibility, should the virus worsen or experience a second wave that an early move-out could occur. We are working on plans for this should the need arise. University Housing will provide as much notice as we are able.
Housing applications are still open for fall 2020. However, there are currently waitlists in place for all applicants and on-campus housing cannot be guaranteed.
At the current time, spring 2021 plans would mirror fall 2020 plans. However, developments related to COVID-19 can affect spring 2021 and it is too early to provide definitive details for spring 2021. Additionally, deferring an application to spring 2021 does not guarantee a space on campus.
Early move-in is only permitted for certain groups such as athletes and international students. These arrangements are made directly with coaches and program directors.
In an effort to prioritize the health and safety of our students, residents are strongly encouraged to get tested prior to moving in. If you test positive, per public health department mandates, you are to isolate at home before moving in to the residence halls.
