  • If your roommate tests positive for COVID at any point, there is a good chance you will need to move to a section of a different residence hall (dedicated to students in quarantine) for 14 days, until we can be sure you are not infected. You will need to stay in quarantine for that two-week time period. The college will provide you with meals in your room during your quarantine, and an opportunity to stay engaged academically.

    If your roommate develops symptoms, but has not yet been tested for COVID or is awaiting test results, we encourage you to contact the Health Service (503-768-7165) for guidance about next steps.

  • Your room is considered an indoor private space, so face coverings are not required to be worn if you are alone in your room with your roommate. However, you might still choose to wear your mask.

  • Yes. All L&C students, staff, and faculty are required to wear face coverings in public spaces. There will be reusable masks provided for all L&C members. Students who are unable to wear a face covering for medical or other reasons should contact Student Support Services to request an exemption.

  • Know the symptoms of COVID-19. If you ever experience these symptoms, immediately self-isolate and follow the directions on the Health Service website. Anytime the Health Service is closed, you can reach our NEW nurse consultation service by calling 1-844-915-2069. This is a NEW phone number for the 2020-21 academic year!

  • We are working to keep any cases of COVID-19 on campus this year to a minimum, but we do expect to have some cases. We are well prepared to handle a reasonable number of cases. Should there be a significant outbreak, Campus Living will follow any guidelines or orders that come from state and county health officials. We will work to make sure that no students are left without housing if Campus Living is forced to close.

  • The housing deferment will not affect your ability to study abroad. You will just need to complete your requirement once you are back.

  • We are asking students, staff, and faculty to avoid non-essential travel.

  • As a community member, monitoring yourself is vital. Familiarizing yourself with symptoms of COVID-19 is important. Caring for others by maintaining good personal hygiene as instructed by the CDC (washing hands, wearing a face covering in public spaces where you are less than 6 ft away from someone, etc.) is beneficial. Not going to public spaces (class, dining hall, activity center, etc.) if you have any concerning symptoms is crucial for protecting the community. Any student living on-campus will be asked to sign a statement assuming personal responsibility for their health.

  • There are no current travel restrictions for leaving campus, however we do ask that all students, staff, and faculty take the necessary precautions to maintain their health and safety. This includes, but is not limited to, practicing social distancing at all times, wearing masks in all public places, washing your hands regularly, and limiting all non-essential travel. See this CDC webpage for more information about best health practices for using public transit, rideshare, and other transportation options.

  • Students will be allowed access to shared spaces as long as they are being mindful of the capacity limits of those spaces. There will be signage up indicating these limits. If there are ever any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to one of the Campus Living staff members.

  • Yes, currently the State and Local guidelines require a combination of social distancing, wearing masks, and following other health guidelines. Couches have been removed from residence hall lounges in order to ensure social distancing.

  • Yes, there will be increased cleaning for residence hall bathrooms, common areas, and communal spaces similar to the cleaning in other parts of campus.

  • Normally, we would have alerted you of your roommate assignment by this time in the calendar. However, we have delayed confirming roommate assignments and housing placements for several reasons. As we are working to de-densify the residence halls, we are sure that we will need to continue to reassign students in the upcoming weeks. The new housing option mentioned above will give us a clearer picture of who will actually be living in the halls. Most importantly, we are working to ensure that our rooming assignments meet the both State and Local guidelines for health and safety. We hope to provide you information about your roommate and living location no later than August 7th.

  • All living areas will continue to have Resident Advisors as well as professional staff members. As you can already suspect, programming has been restricted by the Governor of Oregon, so we will be working to build community in new and creative ways. We encourage residents to be a part of this planning as well to ensure you are all maximizing our collective experiences.

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, socialize and operate day-to-day. Honestly, things will have to change to maintain a safe community for all. We are continuously working to de-densify the campus, meaning most rooms will either be doubles or singles unless living in Apartment style or semi-double style rooms.

  • Yes, please fill out this Meal Plan change form. Meal plan changes must be submitted by Friday, September 4. All students living on campus are required to have a meal plan, so please plan accordingly.
