Frequently Asked Questions
I was expecting to live in fraternity or sorority housing. Can I be released from my contract?
You will need to contact your chapter president or house corporation for any housing releases that are required as a condition of your membership.
What has the University done to de-densify on campus housing?
The University has developed a plan to move to 77% occupancy in on-campus housing. The plan includes single rooms in buildings where students share a hallway bathroom and some double-room options in buildings with in-suite bathrooms. Cleaning schedules in hallway bathrooms will be increased.
What happens if someone in my dorm is diagnosed with COVID-19?
Per the recommendation of the CDC and public health officials, those who test positive will be asked to self-isolate and quarantine. We will work closely with public health officials and will follow their guidance to mitigate the spread of this virus.
What happens if I get sick while living in a residence hall?
In order to prevent more cases of the COVID-19 virus, the current recommendation from the CDC is to self-isolate and quarantine in your current location. It is not recommended that you travel or move to another location.
What if my student cannot travel home, will the University offer on-campus living again as it did in spring?
Why haven’t DU’s food costs gone down?
The cost of food and service has risen as a result of COVID-19, especially because of the elimination of buffet style.
If students are living on campus in apartment-style residence halls, can they cook their own meals instead of paying for the meal plan and eating in the dining halls?
