Housing, Dining & Residential Living
The University is a residential campus, encouraging first-time, first-year and second-year students to reside in on-campus housing. To support on-campus and off-campus living in the fall, we are providing additional guidance to enhance the health and well-being of our community. For example, we have increased the number of single occupancy rooms for first time first year students from 0% to 56%. This allows us to both reduce risk and to increase options for isolation should students be exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. We have also designated an entire building as a space for isolation and quarantine of individuals who are exposed to or become ill with COVID-19. To support the additional singles, we have rented additional space off campus.
The University has worked to secure housing for all of our undergraduate and graduate students who, as of June 18, 2020, had signed Housing and Residential Education (HRE) housing contracts or active housing applications for University owned or operated housing or any of the four University owned and/or operated facilities in Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL).
