Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I have a roommate?
    Yes! We are returning to double and single rooms. When you complete your application you will answer a brief questionnaire that will allow us to place you with a roommate! Singles are limited.
  2. Can parents/family still visit students on campus?
    Yes, but you will not be permitted in the Residence Halls. You can visit with them in any outdoor area on campus.
  3. Are students locked into the Room & Board contract?
    Any student that requests fall housing through the new form and is assigned a room will be held to the Room & Board contract and its terms. Those that do not receive a housing assignment due to capacity limitations will be released from the housing contract. Please remember that the housing contract is a full academic year contract that covers both the Fall and Spring semesters.
  4. Will there still be full dining hall options?
    The dining hall will have new health and safety protocols, including increased to-go options. They are striving to offer a varied menu with quality options for students.
  5. Will students be allowed to travel?
    Yes! We do have policies in place to ensure students are able to travel while ensuring the safety of our population. Please know that this is dependent on Federal and State regulations.
  6. What will the lounges look like?
    Some furniture will be removed from the Residence Hall lounges to ensure social distancing.
