Moving back for spring semester 2021

Student Housing requires all residents to complete a COVID-19 saliva test AND choose a time to move in for Spring 2021 semester. You'll be notified when your appointment scheduler is available (returning residents - see link at left).

If you did not take the test, read and follow the instructions in this email. 

If you are an out-of-state student coordinating long-distance travel, you may contact Student Housing if you don't find an appropriate time. Housing staff is available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 785-864-4560.
