Fall 2020 Health and Safety Plan for Returning to Campus

Residential Housing

Revised July 8, 2020

In-Room Guest Policy

Students are expected to maintain social distancing practices. The University will inform students of expectations as they evolve with the shifting public health landscape. All in-room guest policies will be suspended if Montgomery County is in a red or yellow phase, and possibly even if the County is in a green phase.

Guidelines for Move-In/Move-Out Process

Returning to campus will require changes to the normal move-in process, including:

  • Expanded days and times to allow physical distance;
  • Enhanced cleaning during move-in process;
  • Limit of three (3) guests to assist with each student’s move-in (children are to be under the supervision of parents or guardians at all times);
  • Designated move-in times;
  • Streamlined check-in process at the Castle.
    • Students will be greeted by professional staff and the Orientation team, provided their new student packets, guided to their residential spaces to unpack, and guided to key offices (Student Health Services, Financial Aid, Graduate and Undergraduate Studies, One-Stop Shop, etc.) throughout the day.
