Spring entry requirements to return to on-campus housing

Residential students must complete a COVID-19 test and receive a negative test result before returning to campus in January. Test kits are COVID-19 PCR swab tests, with the same reliability as tests used for on-campus asymptomatic surveillance and at-will testing. Residential students received an email with this information along with other entry requirements. For more details about the COVID-19 test, please visit the Spring Entrance Testing page.
