Fall 2021 Move-in
Health and Safety
The UM Housing staff continues to work closely with the University of Montana, city, county, and state officials to review all aspects of our operations and make health and safety adjustments as necessary. Please be aware of the following move-in expectations:
- Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptom(s) should not come to campus and should consult their health care provider. You can read about screening and other resources on the University of Montana’s COVID-19 website.
- All students are expected to arrive to check in during their 2-hour move-in window. Those students that arrive outside of their move-in window may be asked to wait to ensure that the lobby areas do not become congested.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued updated guidance recommending mask use in indoor settings regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status, in locations experiencing increased COVID-19 transmission and infection. The Missoula City-County Health Department has reported increased COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations in our county, including the presence of the Delta variant, and is recommending indoor mask use for all. Likewise, UM asks that employees, students and visitors wear masks indoors including in public spaces in UM Housing – regardless of vaccination status – and will require masks in classrooms and laboratory settings.
