The W's Campus Renewal Task Force will continue to implement the plan to de-densify campus (limit the number of people physically in a given space) for the Spring 2021 semester. The university encourages any student fully enrolled in online classes to remain at their permanent residences for the Spring 2021 semester as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Residence halls will continue to be open for enrolled students who need to live on campus, however you must notify the university of your intent to do so.
All residential students will be required to complete a Covid-19 test prior to moving into their residence hall room for spring 2021. There are three available options for students.
Option 1: Test at their chosen local health care provider while at home (no more than 72 hours prior to check-in)
Option 2: Schedule a January 7th or January 8th appointment for a free, rapid test on campus by contacting the Office of Housing and Residence Life at (662) 329-7127
Option 3: Provide documentation of a past Covid-19 infection and/or positive antibody test
