Mandatory COVID-19 Testing 

All residents will receive a COVID-19 test before moving into their space for spring 2021 semester. COVID-19 testing will be at no additional cost. Testing will occur on campus. A sign-up link and more information will be posted here as it is available.

All residents must complete the Testing Consent Form that is available in the Housing U portal to receive a test. If you have not already completed the form, access the form under the 'Housing Forms' tab inside your Housing U portal

test results & notification 

Residents should be prepared to isolate and limit their exposure to others until receiving test results. Until receipt of test results, residents should remain in their rooms other than when they are picking up meals from the dining facility.

Resident test results will be prioritized as much as possible. We expect results will be available within 1-4 days after testing.

  • Positive Result: If the test result is positive, residents will receive a phone call on their cell phone.  If there is no cell phone, they will receive an email through their UMail account.
  • Negative Result: If the test result is negative, students will receive an email through their UMail account.
