  • Residence Halls

    In the fall 2021 semester, the university residence halls will be open for those who would like to reside on campus, and we anticipate operating near capacity. Building amenities, including gyms, music practice rooms, art studios, and lounges will be open for use.

    • Students are required to wear a mask in all university buildings, including common areas of the residence halls such as hallways, elevators, lounges, and other shared spaces. 

    • Masks will not be required in dorm rooms and suites. However unvaccinated individuals are required to continue wearing a mask in these spaces when others are present.

    • Guests will be limited to residential students only. Please refer to our FAQ for more information about our residence hall guest policy.

    • Masks are available at no cost from vending machines in residence halls and select other spaces.

    Guest Policies

    During move-in, one non-residential guest at a time can join each student. The guest can be interchanged with another guest to assist the resident. Non-residential guests will not be permitted to enter the residence halls other than during move-in.

    Between move-in and September 13, out of an abundance of caution, guests are not allowed in the residence halls. 

    Beginning September 13, each residential student is permitted one day/overnight guest at a time. Only current residential students will be allowed to visit other residential halls as a guest and must follow university policies regarding wearing a mask in public spaces. 

    Residential students must notify their roommates and/or suite-mates before hosting a guest in their apartment. Additionally, all residents are responsible for their guest's actions during their visit, and any policy violation made by a resident and/or their guest may result in disciplinary action.

    Please visit the Housing website for more information.

    Dining Services

    Dining services will resume full operation in fall 2021, including in-person and grab-and-go options.
