Although COVID-19 case numbers in the residence halls are currently very low, we know that continuing to limit gatherings and in-person interactions will be an important tool in keeping numbers down. As a result, University Housing will continue with virtual programming and events for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester. We did not make this decision lightly as it is not our ideal and we know that this decision may disappoint some of our residents. Your health and safety is our number one priority.
We will be continuing our efforts to make virtual programming the best that it can be. Though we may not have face-to face activities, we have still the same resources and services to help meet your needs. If students or staff have ideas on how to improve programming, please let us know. In consultation with University Health Services, we have begun working on a phased plan to return to in-person activities in the spring if case numbers in the residence halls and the surrounding area remain low.
