CURRENT STUDENT FAQ

COVID-19

Where can I find the latest information about COVID-19 and how it’s affecting the Residential Life experience?

For the most up-to-date information on the coronavirus, please read the Show Me Renewal plan.

Can I move into another room?

To limit opportunities for transmission, room moves are currently restricted. These restrictions will be continuously assessed and revised in phases throughout the 2020–21 academic year. Progression through these phases is based on the status of COVID-19 in our community and the recommendations of health experts.

At this time, we are limiting room moves to those necessary for student health, safety and accountability (including, but not limited to, isolation/quarantine, facility repairs and student conduct sanctions). Students may contact their residence hall coordinators for assistance or questions.

These restrictions will be reassessed and may be revised in early October. Continued social distancing, use of face coverings and monitoring symptoms with #CampusClear may allow us to ease these restrictions.

Can I have vistors?

To limit opportunities for close contact, visitors to Residential Life facilities are currently restricted. These restrictions will be continuously assessed and revised in phases throughout the 2020–21 academic year. Progression through these phases is based on the status of COVID-19 in our community and the recommendations of health experts.

At this time, off-campus visitors and visitors from other residence halls are not allowed. The following individuals may enter Residential Life facilities and must follow current MU safety guidelines and expectations:

  • A building's assigned occupants
  • Essential MU employees
  • Approved external service providers (including, but not limited to, delivery services and maintenance contractors)

These restrictions will be reassessed and may be revised in early October. Continued social distancing, use of face coverings and monitoring symptoms with #CampusClear may allow us to ease these restrictions.

Will students living in double rooms still have roommates?

Yes. You and your roommate will be responsible for keeping your room a clean and healthy environment — similar to your responsibilities at home.

Will there still be opportunities to build community and get involved?

Yes! We are evaluating all residential programming to limit group sizes while still offering plenty of opportunities to build community and get involved.

 

General

Can I move off campus mid-year?

If you’re not a first-year student, you may cancel your contract without penalty if you leave campus to study abroad, to attend another school, withdraw or for other academic reasons. If you’re unsure, give us a call at 573-882-7275 or housing@missouri.edu

Please be aware that university policy requires first-time college students to live in Residential Life residence facilities. If you are a first-time college student, your contract is for a complete academic year. All residents who have signed a legal contract are required to fulfill their responsibilities.

I have another question not answered above.

For more information, email housing@missouri.edu or call 573-882-7275.
