HRL COVID-19 INFORMATION

Move-In Schedule:

Fall Opening has been extended to seven full days in order to lessen crowds and allow our residents to move-in in the safest way possible. All move-in times are by reservation only. You can find additional information HERE

Move-In Guidelines:

The following guidelines will be implemented to minimize risk to the residential community:

  • You must begin the Symptom Self-Checker 14 days prior to your arrival on campus. 
  • Masks are required on campus and we encourage 6ft. social distancing at all times. 
  • You may have three guests to assist you with move-in. 
  • You have 2 hours from the time you arrive to check-in, retrieve your key, unload your belongings, and relocate your vehicle(s).
  • You and your guest(s) will be asked a series of questions by Health Services and your temperature will be taken. 
  • We ask that individuals in the following categories refrain from entering the hall for your safety and health: over the age of 65; history of heart or lung disease, diabetes, autoimmune compromised, anyone with a fever within 48 hours or that has been exposed to someone awaiting COVID-19 test results. 

VISITATION:

Due to Covid-19, there will be no guests or visitors allowed in the residence halls for at least the first eight (8) weeks of the semester. We will assess this decision throughout the semester and provide ongoing, timely updates. Housing and Residence Life defines guests or visitors as individuals who are not assigned a room within the building. Residents who are assigned to the building will be permitted to visit other residents who are in the same assigned building. Overnight guests are prohibited

We expect residents to adhere to no more than one guest per resident of an apartment or residence hall room at any given time. The RAs will work with roommate and apartment-mates to establish room/apartment agreements about how this will be managed. 

HEALTH PRECAUTIONS:

In effort to protect our university community, please follow the World Health Organization recommendations and guidelines.

  • Maintain Social Distancing (at least 6 feet).
  • Wear a mask at all times.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick. 
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Consider alternatives to shaking hands.
  • Avoid crowds and gatherings

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to protect the health of our residential community. We understand that this is a challenging time and are here to support you.
