Preparing for quarantine/isolation

We know that having to quarantine or isolate can be a huge stress! We are here to make it as comfortable as possible. Here are some of the ways you can be prepared to quarantine/isolate, and how we will assist you through the process.

What happens if I have to quarantine or isolate as directed by the Campus Health Center?

  • Watch your phone for a call from the Housing & Residential Life staff! They'll talk you through the process, relocation, items to pack, and will answer any questions you might have.
  • Follow instructions provided by Housing & Residential Life for quarantine/isolation on campus. You'll receive a phone call and email to confirm all information.
  • Fill out the Meal Delivery Form if you'd like meals provided by Dining Services
