Residential Life

Changes to Our Residential Neighborhoods

There is no doubt that life in our residential neighborhoods has been different this year. We all have a role to play in maintaining the strictest health and safety standards to keep each other safe.

Residential Life Guest Policy

Students who live alone

As of April 8, students who live in stand-alone singles or who do not have any room, suite- or apartment-mates (meaning they are the only one assigned to their entire housing unit – not just bedroom) may have one guest at a time in their space. Here are the guidelines:

  • Guest must live in the same neighborhood (A-F) or building (Hawk Hall, Regents Park, Park River, and Village Apartments) as the resident they are visiting, but do not need to live on the same floor.
  • For example, if you live in Poe, you can visit a friend’s room in Malcolm X, Dubois, Willard, and Poe. If you live in Hawk Hall, you can visit anyone who is living alone in Hawk Hall.
  • Residents and their guests must wear masks and maintain social distance.
  • Non-residential students are not allowed in residential spaces.
students who have room, suite- or apartment-mates

Students who live in doubles, suites, and apartments may not have guests. We will continue to monitor health conditions and trends to see if we will be able to relax restrictions in these spaces in the future.

Please see our full residential life policy. It is important that you read it in order to get a complete picture of the rules, expectations, and possible repercussions of not following the policy.

Other Health and Safety Guidelines

All residential students are required to fill out the LiveSafe health survey every day. Please follow all capacity limits and social distancing guidelines in common spaces. And of course, don't forget to wear your mask when you are not in your own space!

If you are getting food delivered, or are being picked up or dropped off by a rideshare service, please send the driver to F Lot. (Rideshares cannot pick up students between 11 p.m.–5 a.m.)
