Changes to Visitor Policy and Dining

Due to a concerning increase in COVID-19 cases on campus and around the community, University Housing is enacting two changes, effective November 11, 2020 until further notice to help protect our residents:

  • Visitor Policy: Starting at 5pm on November 11, residents are not allowed to have visitors from other residence halls (or non-residents). This policy is in effect for all residence halls.
  • Dine-In Seating: Starting at 4pm on November 11, dine-in seating is closed at all Housing dining locations. All food is carryout, grab-and-go, and delivery.

It is our hope that these measures will help avoid returning to any building-wide quarantines. We need all of our residents to take this very seriously. Our success depends on everyone continuing to follow all public health guidelines and policies outlined in the Student Housing Handbook. Violations of COVID-related policies can result in removal from Housing. For the safety of your community, please report any violations you observe through the COVID-19 Public Health Concern Form or through the House Fellow duty phone for your buildings.

If these changes affect your plans for November Break and the end of the semester, please update your information as soon as possible in the November Break Plans form in My UW Housing.
