UM Strongly Encourages Students to Move Out of Residence Halls

March 22, 2020

Dear UM residence hall family,

We strongly encourage you, for your health and safety and that of our entire campus community, to make plans to move out of our residence halls as soon as possible. As quickly as COVID-19 is spreading throughout the U.S., we want to ensure that our students are as far out of harm’s way as possible and leaving a communal living situation will do just that. And while we are strongly encouraging you to leave, no one will be evicted from our halls. We will find suitable accommodations.

If your circumstances are such that our residence halls are your only option, please contact us immediately. We will work with you on your individual situation. We will not evict anyone from the residence halls.

Please complete this survey to tell us your plans for the remainder of the semester.

We understand this is a change from even 24 hours ago. However, this is a virus that is developing rapidly and we are working to stay ahead of it. Greatly reducing the number of students in our residence halls will help us slow the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our community.

Sarah Swager, Vice Provost
