The health and safety of our students are our highest priorities. We are all navigating together the challenges posed by the current pandemic. President Loh recently announced plans for the gradual, phased return to campus that includes decreasing density in classrooms, public spaces, dining halls, and residence halls.
In response to the University’s plan, we must strategically reduce fall residence hall occupancy. In addition, we will hold rooms at the ready to be available for possible quarantine and isolation housing.
Our campus is a place where students, faculty, and staff come together to engage and learn from each other. Physical proximity always has been and always will be an important part of that engagement. It goes against our very nature to put physical distance between us. For a time, though, we must take necessary precautions so that our campus and the members of our community can be protected to the greatest extent possible. We will need everyone in our community to work together to protect oneself and your fellow community members. We ask for your understanding, flexibility, and support of these goals.
The ever-changing nature of public health information could result in a change in our housing plans. We will contact you as soon as possible should things change.
These are uncertain and challenging times. Please know that our staff is here for you. We encourage you to reach out to us if you have additional questions and inquiries. Please stay safe and healthy.
