Students moving in to dormsLiving on-campus can greatly impact your academic and personal growth while attending college.

Daily living experiences that are not learned in the classroom often occur in your informal living environment. We will work with you to provide an atmosphere that is safe and conducive to learning 

What to Expect on Move-in Day

Move-In FAQs

Residential Life is currently establishing plans surrounding health and safety in the residences for the fall semester, in consultation with CDC and University leadership. Our intention is to provide students with a positive on-campus experience while abiding by all local, state, and federal protocols. These plans may change as we continue to monitor and respond to recommendations and guidelines from the appropriate authorities.

More information will be shared with incoming residents via email as details are finalized. We will also post updates on the Residential Life website.

  • Social distancing will be required at all times.
  • Residents and guest who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms should remain home.
  • Limited bottled water will be in central location in each housing building so please plan accordingly.

  • Schedule move-in appointment.
  • Complete RSU COVID-19 screening 5 days before move-in. Screening test is located on MyRSU.

All residents and guests are required to wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth at the check-in process and common areas of housing buildings. If you don’t have face coverings, you will not be permitted to check-in. A limited number of masks will be available.

According to the CDC, Coronavirus is spread in the same ways as other virus illnesses like common influenza or colds. Your keys to limiting exposure to all viruses are similar:

  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 second.
  • Hand sanitizers can be an effective alternative.
  • Here’s a video from CDC: What You Need To Know About Handwashing.
  • More on handwashing.
  • Disinfect surfaces that people touch frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth – germs often spread when a person touches something contaminated and then your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow if you cough or sneeze.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel sick, please stay home.

Both help limit the exposure to people with contagious diseases, but it’s helpful to know the difference.

  • Quarantine is to separate people who were potentially exposed to a contagious disease to see if they start to display symptoms or become sick.
  • Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from others.

Currently, the CDC and Department of Homeland Security have implemented Federal travel restrictions that may require travelers to enter into 14-day long quarantine due to potential COVID-19 exposure.
