While living on campus is different during this time, there are opportunities for students to connect through different activities on campus. The Ukindness website maintains an activities calendar for students and is available at: https://kindness.studentaffairs.uconn.edu/ . The Residential Life staff continues to be committed to supporting our residential students. As the semester begins, due to the precautionary 14 day quarantine, the connection will primarily be virtual. As the semester gets underway and we have a healthy campus we will safely provide more face to face and in person interactions.
We will continue to operate at a reduced occupancy model of around 50% occupancy for the spring semester and we will continue to adhere to the additional safety measures that were implemented in the fall semester and that have helped us to remain open as a residential campus, including COVID-19 re-entry testing, quarantine, isolation, physical distancing and mask wearing.
As a reminder, approval to live on campus for the spring semester is contingent upon agreement to the Temporary Health and Safety Procedures. There will continue to be strict protocol for quarantine and isolation and these protocols will occur to and around all students on campus during the spring semester. Students may be asked to quarantine on numerous occasions if directed to do so by SHaW.
All residential students need to commit to their own health and wellbeing, and understand that engaging in appropriate activities and contacting SHaW for any physical and mental health needs are vital for personal residential success. Additionally, students need to commit to the UConn Promise, which has allowed for residential community success thus far.
