Guest restrictions in place through Feb. 15

Restrictions on guests in any KU Student Housing building are currently in place from now through at least Feb. 15, 2021. This new policy for the start of semester is based on the continued need to protect the on-campus community and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Only those who live in your building are allowed to be in your room or suite, with the permission of all roommates. Off-campus students, family, or friends are not allowed, with one exception: Returning residents may have two guests help during the scheduled move-in time. Any move-in helpers – including family members - must depart immediately after move in.

Guests are defined as any person attempting to enter a community that they are not assigned. Residents may visit other residents who live in their assigned building as long as you wear a mask and practice social distancing. Violations of the guest policy will be documented and follow up with the individual will occur through the student conduct process.
