Housing Updates

Jan. 21, 2022 Update - Staged Return to Campus: Given the high rates of transmission of the omicron variant, the University needs to quadruple quarantine and isolation space from what we needed for fall semester. This requires significant shifting of students from residence hall space that is appropriate for Q&I to other available housing. For more information on the staged return, please click here.
