Housing Common Areas
Common area spaces in the residence halls like study spaces and lounges will be open. We have rearranged furniture in those spaces so that it is set in accordance with physical distancing guidelines.
Students are expected to abide by physical distancing protocols when in commons spaces. In an effort to assist students with distancing, we have reduced and rearranged furniture in commons spaces. Students should follow posted guidelines that will help identify ways to yield to others and outline maximum capacity in various space. The success of our Return to Campus Plan will hinge on all of us working together to follow posted guidelines and practice healthy behaviors like wearing a mask in public spaces.
Due to challenges with appropriately sanitizing these spaces, shared kitchen spaces in residence halls will be closed. Campus Dining has announced their fall semester plans.
In residential bathrooms, students should practice physical distancing and follow any additional posted guidelines for use. Common area bathrooms will be cleaned twice a day. Bathrooms will have a standard cleaning in the morning and a deeper cleaning and sanitization in the evenings.
