University Housing, in collaboration with our campus partners, are responsible for preparing and executing a safe repopulation program.

Repopulation Safety Control Measures:

  • Augmented COVID-19 safety, detection, and reporting training for all student and professional staff, working on campus or remotely to support student housing
  • A fall check-in process will be structured to provide for staggered, scheduled move-ins spread out over several days
  • Single-occupancy only bedrooms in apartment cohorts not to exceed three static occupants.
  • All units will be cleaned and sanitized prior to occupancy according to CDC guidance and campus standards
  • Residents will be prohibited from visiting units other than the one to which they are assigned, and guests will be not be allowed except in limited cases such as personal care attendants for students with disabilities
  • Students will be provided with apartment social distancing expectations as well as apartment cleaning and kitchen usage guidance, encouraging them to be active participants in their own health and safety
  • An entire “isolation” building of eight, single-bedroom/single occupancy apartments will be set aside, prepared, and ready to safely house on-campus residents who have been diagnosed as COVID-19 positive
  • A separate set of four single-bedroom/single occupancy apartments will be reserved for incoming residents with disability accommodations
  • Face masks will be required of all students and staff when they are outdoors or in any common area of University Housing such as the laundry rooms
  • All staff working in the housing community will be provided with appropriate and adequate PPE and safety training specific to their job responsibilities
  • Enhanced and increased cleaning will be provided in all common areas and high touch surfaces including in any office space where limited staff may need to work regularly or intermittently
