Not feeling well or need to quarantine? 

Housing and Residential Life has a process for any on-campus resident who must self-quarantine in a university housing building. A resident who returns from travel or stopovers at any countries or areas with travel advisories set at CDC levels 2 and 3 , or who have been exposed directly to a confirmed case of COVID-19, must quarantine themselves for 14 days immediately upon return.

  • Campus residents who believe they qualify for quarantine should notify the Campus Health Center (CHC) at 313-577-5041 to discuss their situations.
  • Those who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 should contact the CHC or their primary care provider immediately to begin COVID-19 testing.
  • Those who test positive for COVID-19 should alert the CHC and/or their primary care provider immediately.
  • Those returning from domestic travel in areas with sustained community transmission of COVID-19 are encouraged to practice self-observation for the development of any symptoms and contact the CHC if they develop a fever or respiratory symptoms.

  1. Notify Campus Health Center (CHC) to receive further guidance (313-577-5041).
