Housing Updates

Our enhanced safety measures and commitment to strictly following social distancing and quarantine guidelines have led to capacity changes in our residential communities. Unfortunately, this means some housing assignments may have to change. We know these changes are not ideal, but they are necessary, and we all have a role to play in maintaining the strictest health and safety standards to keep each other safe.

  • Housing assignments: The Office of Residential Life will finalize housing assignments for returning students by early August. New first-year students were notified the first week of August. Assignment notifications will be sent via email.

  • Updates to billing statement: Because of the changes to our fall calendar after Thanksgiving break, billing statements will reflect a reduction in housing and dining costs for residential students. See the cost breakdown.

  • First-year students: Incoming students should refer to the residential life update sent via email on Monday, July 6 regarding housing opportunities for first-year students. 

We know your residential life experience is extremely important to you and we sincerely thank you for your patience and flexibility. If you have specific questions, please email the Office of Residential Life at

Move-in Details

The University will offer an early drop-off period during the week leading up to the start of the semester for residential students who can easily travel to campus. This will be a same-day, in-and-out process to drop off belongings in rooms and return home without an overnight stay. Similar to our ongoing move-out process, advance sign-up will be required for preset time slots. This will allow us to accommodate testing requirements, maintain social distancing recommendations, and minimize traffic.
