Frequently Asked Questions

We are committed to providing as holistic a living experience as possible for our students, while implementing precautions to protect their health. Safety measures include reduced density and a new housing assignment process, earlier move-in and move-out dates, and testing and quarantine protocols. Off-Campus and Commuter Student Services is available to assist students in securing off-campus housing and to support those students who commute to campus from home.

As always, campus services for students, faculty, and staff will be available when campuses reopen. Please visit the Reopening UConn website for additional information.

I have questions for Student Health and Wellness

Please visit the Student Health and Wellness website for additional information. SHaW has also updated their Mental Health Resource Page with other information and resources.

Where will I get tested for COVID-19?

Please visit the Student Health and Wellness website for additional information.

Is it possible that plans could change during the spring semester if COVID numbers decrease?

The current plan is for the entire spring semester; at this point there is no plan for any adjustments that would ease policies in regards to COVID-19.

Will there be a similar housing request process for Fall 2021 housing? Would I be able to select my own room?

Residential Life will work on developing a housing process for the fall 2021 semester corresponding with the appropriate guidance of the institution.  More information will be communicated to students about fall 2021 housing availability and processes during the fall semester/Winter Recess period. 

What are things I should consider before living on campus for the spring semester?

  • Some key reminders about what it means to live on campus during this time: 
    • The majority of new students will be assigned into traditional double rooms and will not have roommates. The Resident Assistants (RAs) are working to continue building community within the halls, but much of their interaction is done virtually or via social distancing.  
    • Students will not be permitted to have any guests in their rooms, including other residential students. 
    • Students are expected to wear masks while on campus and to practice physical distancing.  
    • Once on campus, students should plan to remain on campus for the entire semester. The Temporary Health and Safety Procedures shares more about this expectation.  
    • Parents and family members can come to campus to visit, but are not permitted in the halls.  
    • Floors that have communal bathrooms will have family units of students assigned to use each bathroom and will not be able to use other bathrooms on different residential floors.  
    • Students will be tested regularly and if they receive a positive test result for COVID-19, they would be isolated while they recover.  
    • If you are identified as a close contact of a person who tests positive for COVID-19, you will be quarantined for a timeline determined by Student Health and Wellness. While quarantining, you will not be able to attend in person classes or activities (including the Recreation Center, student organizations, or athletic practices) and you will likely need to go to a separate dining hall for any meals. Students may experience having to quarantine multiple times during the semester.   

Does my “guaranteed housing” status for fall 2020 mean that I can definitely live on campus this spring?

  • Students must request housing for the spring semester in MyHousing by November 6, 2021.   
  • All requests will be carefully reviewed by Residential Life but due to reduced density in the halls we cannot guarantee that every request will be approved.
  • All students will receive an update regarding their housing eligibility in November.

Will freshmen still be guaranteed housing?

  • Freshmen will still have the opportunity to live on campus for the spring semester and will need to complete additional steps to accept housing.  
  • The residency requirement has been suspended for the spring semester and any students who were previously required to live on campus will now have the option to commute to campus if they prefer. 

If I am taking all online classes, can I live on campus?

Students who are currently living on campus that apply for spring housing will still be approved if they have only online classes. All other students will need to take at least one class in-person, unless they have some other hardship indicated in their documentation. 

Can I still be a Hartford or Avery Point student and live at Storrs this spring?

Regional campus students can indicate interest in living on campus along with any other student.  Eligibility will be considered for students with guidance from the Provost’s Office and the academic priorities of the institution.  Students who are approved to live on campus for the spring will be notified in November.  

I’m a freshmen who was required to live on campus but now I want to live at home.

At this time, the residency requirement for the spring semester has been suspended. While freshmen will be offered the ability to live on campus, they are no longer required to do so and can cancel by completing the cancellation application in MyHousing.

I’m a new student and I’m not sure if I should live on campus or stay home for this semester.

We encourage all new students to carefully consider their plans for the spring semester. This academic year is unlike any that we have experienced at UConn and some new students have found that their initial UConn experience wasn’t what they had anticipated as a result of the Temporary Health and Safety Procedures. 

I need to apply for Spring 2021 housing after the start of the semester

At this time the spring 2021 housing request form is no longer available. If a student needs housing for the spring semester, they will need to email livingoncampus@uconn.edu for additional instructions and to share why they need housing at this time.

What does it mean when people say “reduced density”?

  • “Reduced density” is a term used to refer to the occupancy levels of rooms or spaces on campusWe have been creating plans to limit the number of students on each floor and to reduce the number of students sharing bathrooms in order to provide additional social and physical distancing for on-campus residents. 
  • This also means that students in traditional doubles will not have a roommate in their space and that suite spaces in Busby and Garrigus will only have 2 residents per room. 
  • Some spaces that may already be considered reduced density (such as 4 Person – 4 Bedroom apartments, South Suites, double efficiency apartments, or doubles with private bathrooms) will not have the number of residents reduced for the spring semester. 

What are the priorities that the University is considering when reviewing requests to live on campus?

  • All students living on campus during the fall 2020 semester 
  • Students with a demonstrated hardship that makes it difficult to impossible to reside anywhere except on campus 
  • International students who are enrolled in online or in-person classes 
  • Athletes who will be participating in athletic competition 
  • Out of state students who are enrolled in in-person classes 
  • In state students who are enrolled in in-person classes 
  • Students newly admitted to UConn for the spring semester 

What is the timeline for indicating interest in housing?

  • Students will be encouraged to indicate interest for housing by the November 6, 2020 priority deadline, to allow staff appropriate time to notify students of their status and to complete assignments/housing selection preparations.
  • Students who apply for housing after November 6 will have their application reviewed if space is available. If approved, this group of students would be assigned into a space by Residential Life staff.

I am a newly admitted UConn student, or I have been living off-campus for the fall semester and would like to request housing for spring 2021

Please following the following steps to request housing for the fall semester if you do not automatically see the form in MyHousing:

  1. Please email livingoncampus@uconn.edu and request to have access to the form. Please share your 7 digit student ID (Peoplesoft) number and that you cannot currently see the form.
  2. Login to MyHousing and submit the Housing Request Form.
  3. IMPORTANT: You must also submit a written document explaining why you need to live on campus via the Housing Appeal Request Form. More information regarding your housing status will be shared in November.

When should students expect to hear about where they are living and if they have been given housing?

Students will hear if they have been guaranteed housing in early November and information about housing selection/room assignments will also be shared at that time.

Can the cancellation fee be waived?

  • The housing cancellation fee schedule has been updated due to the changes to campus housing for the spring semester. A spring housing cancellation fee will be not be charged through November 30, 2020. Any spring housing cancellation received December 1, 2020 through January 19, 2021, will be charged a $250 cancellation fee.  Beginning on January 20,2021 cancellations fees will be charged in accordance with the University Refund Schedule.

If it becomes necessary to close the residence halls prior to April 11, 2021 will students receive a refund for housing and dining?

If it becomes necessary to close the on-campus residential facilities prior to April 11, 2021, the institution will make a decision about refunds and inform students of that decision.

If the halls stay open until April 11 will there be a discounted housing rate for the spring 2021 semester?

We know what an unusual year this has been for our students and their families and that many dates and timeframes this year have been atypical of our longstanding college experience expectations.  The University has worked diligently throughout the year to be intentional and thoughtful and to plan with health and safety information in mind for our students.  As a result of that planning, some adjustments were made.


Housing rates are set for a semester, not by day or weeks, and this information was available for and communicated to students as the spring housing application was available.  Each student would have known this information at the start of the semester in accepting a housing assignment for the semester.  The decisions on rates and the academic and residential calendar for this year have been made by many staff members and various departments, not by one sole individual.  We did issue refunds to students last spring, 2020, due to the unexpected closure of the residence halls, but this semester the University has been able to plan appropriately and enough in advance to notify students of the semester dates and housing rates.  Ultimately a refund or discounted rate is not something that is available or being considered this semester as students move out on April 11th.

Frequently Asked Questions about Spring 2021 Assignments

Why could I see a spring 2021 assignment in my MyHousing since August? Does that mean that I am all set?

  • The information previously listed in spring 2021 was set up so that Residential Life could track the assignments students had before the University changed their plans for the fall 2020 semester. This information will be removed from MyHousing now that spring 2021 plans are finalized.
  • The previous room information listed does not guarantee that specific room types, roommates, or locations will be available for students. Any approved student will need to participate in a housing selection or same room process to sign into a specific room type/area of campus.
  • Any student who wishes to live on campus for spring 2021 must submit a housing confirmation form inside of MyHousing by November 6, 2020 in order to be considered for spring housing.

If I want to stay in my current room, is that possible?

  • You will be able to share that preference on the spring 2021 housing confirmation form. If you're approved to live on campus, you will be able to remain in your assignment and keep belongings in that space over Winter Recess.
  • Please note that if you remain in your same room, you will still be required to turn in your room keys at the end of the fall semester and will be able to pick them up when halls reopen.

I want to be able to request a roommate for the spring semester, can I do that?

  • Students who are approved to live on campus for the spring semester and are participating in room selection can submit roommate requests for spring 2021. Please remember the following: 
    • Students can mutually match to form a group of up to 4 total students. 
    • All students must be approved to live on campus in order to show up in the roommate pairing system. 
    • If a student signs up to remain in their same room, they will not be eligible for roommate pairing. 
    • In order to show up in the roommate pairing system, approved students must make their roommate profile public by going to their MyHousing and going to Personal Information > Roommate Profile.  
    • If your group is not able to see any spaces in MyHousing once room selection is underway, this means that we no longer have any spaces that can accommodate your entire group. You will need to reduce your group size until you are able to select housing and should make back up plans so that everyone is in agreement for what will happen if you cannot pick into housing as your full group.  
    • We cannot guarantee that every roommate group will be able to select into housing together due to the reduced density in the halls and the potential for students to remain in their same room.  

Are there areas of campus that will not be available for me to consider for the housing selection/same room process?

  • Some areas of campus will not be available for students to live in for the spring semester. These include Mansfield Apartments, Husky Village, Charter Oak Apartments, Woodhouse Hall (Hilltop Apartments), and Grange Hall (East Campus).

If we are being relocated, can my friends and I move to an apartment? Is there a waiting list for these types of spaces?

  • Unfortunately we are not able to collect a waiting list for specific room types, but there will be a roommate request process for students to request to share an apartment space together. After assignments are released, students who would like to request a room change will need to wait until a future room change process to request a different assignment if they are hoping to move to a different room or room type.
  • During room selection, students will be able to view all available spaces and decide if they would like to select into a different room type (pending availability).

If I stay in my same suite/apartment, can I pull my friends into the room to live with me?

  • Students who remain in their same room will not be eligible to roommate pair or “pull in” any friends into their existing room.  
  • If you would like to live with your friends, you can either indicate on your confirmation form that you would like to change rooms and can then form a roommate group to pick housing together (and could watch the available room list to see if your previous room is available when it is your group’s turn to pick), or you can choose the same room option and encourage the rest of your friends to try to select into any open spaces in your apartment/suite during their selection time.  

Can I request my friend to live next door to me/in the same hall/in the same building?

  • Students who are approved to participate in room selection and will pick their room for the spring semester can work together to try to identify spaces near each other in the halls. In the event that you decide that you would like to live together after housing selection was done, there will be a room change process that would allow you to try to change assignments to be closer to each other. Please remember that students are not permitted to have guests in their rooms for the spring semester, even for students who live on the same floor/building.  
  • New UConn students will be assigned by Residential Life and unfortunatelywe are not able to accept requests for neighbors or specific halls or campus areas.  

I am a learning community resident who does not live on the main floor of the community. Can I move to fill a vacancy, if one arises?

  • Students in learning communities and other special interest areas are firmly established and will be kept intact for the spring. This means that these populations of students will not have the option of participating in an online housing selection process in November.  
  • This group of students will be able to leave their belongings in their room over Winter Recess but you will still need to return your room keys during the move out process at the end of the fall semester.  
  • Students in learning communities or other special interest areas who are interested in living on campus will still need to submit the housing confirmation form inside of MyHousing by November 6, 2021. 

Can I request to move into a learning community for the spring if I am not already a member of the community?

This possibility is still under review.

I am a first year honors student who is looking to live on campus for the first time in the spring. Will I be housed with other first year honors students?

We will do our best to assign Honors students into an Honors community, if space is available.

I was living on campus earlier in the fall semester, but then cancelled my housing. Am I eligible to reapply for spring housing?

Students wishing to return to campus will need to complete a housing confirmation form and submit documentation indicating why they want or need to live on campus.  The application will be reviewed the same as a Fall commuter/online-only student.  

Can I live in a single room?

Traditional and suite single rooms are extremely limited in number and we cannot guarantee that a single room will be available for every student who requests one. However, students who live on campus for the spring 2021 semester will live in reduced density housing, which means that the majority of students will not have a roommate for the spring semester. 

If I select a traditional single room versus a double room with no roommate, is the price the same?

Room rates will not change for the spring semester. Traditional single rooms remain at Rate 4, while traditional double rooms are Rate 1.

I’m living in a reduced density area. Can I sign a waiver in order to have a roommate for the fall semester?

Unfortunately students/parents cannot sign a waiver. The University has made decisions about density in our housing units based on guidance from medical professionals.

If I want to share a traditional room with my friend, can I?

Students assigned to a traditional room will not have roommates. Students in traditional doubles with a bathroom inside the room (Double with Private Bathroom/Shippee C room) may be assigned a roommate. 

If I cancel my fall housing, does that mean that I won’t be guaranteed if I apply for spring 2021?

There will be a process developed for the spring semester for any students who are interested in living on campus.  More information will be available during the fall semester.

After I select housing or am approved to stay in my same room, can I request a room change for my spring 2021 assignment?

There will be the opportunity for students to request a room change prior to the start of the spring 2021 semester. Please note that students who are choosing to remain in their same room may not be eligible to participate in this room change process.  

After the spring semester is underway, will there be another opportunity to change rooms?

It is unlikely that we will be able to offer spring room change this spring, but we plan to offer a room change opportunity once selection is over for spring. Students who opted to remain in their fall space and did not bring their belongings home will not be eligible to participate in the room change process.  

I do not feel comfortable sharing a bedroom with another student. What housing rates should I share on my housing application and what rooms should I look for in selection?

  • We cannot guarantee that every person who wishes to live in a room without a roommate will be able to do so.  
  • During room selection, students will be able to view available rooms and can select into spaces that would allow them to have their own bedroom. If these spaces are no longer available when it is your turn to select housingthere will be a room change process available and you would be able to see if one came available at that time. 
  • When completing the confirmation form, students can share their highest preferred room rate so that students who are assigned by Housing Services (mostly new UConn students) can be assigned into a location that best meets their needs.  
    • Remember that the rate you share is the highest one that will be considered, which means that if you select Rate 4 in the hopes of receiving a single room, our staff will also look at Rate 3 (Garrigus/Busby Suites) and Rate 1 (Traditional Double/Northwood apartments) 
  • Spaces that allow a student to live in the own bedroom without a roommate include: 
    • Traditional Double 
    • Traditional Triple 
      • 4 Person – 4 Bedroom Apartment 
      • 2 Person – 2 Bedroom Apartment 
      • Traditional Single 
      • Suite Single

    Will the halls close at the standard time in May or will we stay later/leave earlier?

    Information regarding May closing is still being finalized

    Frequently Asked Questions about Living On-Campus for Spring 2021

    Will we need to come back to campus 2 weeks early again to quarantine?

    A two-week quarantine will be implemented and required. Dates are still being determined.

    What is UConn doing about safety precautions in the residence halls?

    We are providing cleaning materials in common areas bathrooms. Students will be expected to wipe down sinks, toilets and showers after each use.  Housekeeping staff will clean bathrooms and touch points in the halls twice a day, 7 days a week.  Appropriate signage will be displayed reminding students of mask wearing and physical distancing.  There is some responsibility for all who live in the community to make sure they are upholding the expectations.   

    How will common bathrooms/community bathrooms be safely used?

    This response is for the community bathrooms within the residence halls.

    We are recommending that students minimize their time in all shared bathrooms, do not use their cell phones or store personal items in the shared bathrooms.  Sinks, showers and toilets will have cleaning materials provided for students to wipe down after each use.  All of these bathrooms will be cleaned twice a day, 7 days a week by cleaning staff.   

    How will Residential Life enforce the new rules in the Temporary Health & Safety Procedures? For example, will Residential Life enforce the new guest policy that requires no guests?

    Our staff will address the Temporary Health & Safety Procedures in the halls just as we would enforce The Student Code and Housing Contract. We will address any violations that we see.

    What consequences will students face if they do not adhere to the social distancing rules/regulations?

    Any incidents that come to our attention will be addressed by our staff. We will always focus on an educational approach with our students, however, in any serious incidents and/or continuous violation housing will be assessed.

    What steps is the University taking to ensure my safety and the safety of staff performing maintenance in my room during the semester?

    The University has used CDC and state guidance to develop best practices to ensure the safety of  both students and employees.  All staff members will be required to wear face coverings while in the residence halls and students rooms.  When staff members respond to a work order submitted for student rooms they will ask the resident to put on a face covering and remain at least 6 ft from the staff member while they are performing work in the room.  If it is not possible to maintain safe physical distance from staff members while they are in student rooms the staff member may ask you to temporarily leave the space while they are working in the room or reschedule the work for a time that works better.

    Will UConn staff be cleaning my residence hall room or apartment?

    Facilities will not be disinfecting or cleaning within suites or apartments, but has increased disinfection in common areas campus wide.  All touch points in common areas outside of student rooms, suites, and apartments will be disinfected twice daily campus-wide.  This includes multi-stall bathrooms in traditional style residence halls. The University will provide residents who live in suite and apartments a spray bottle of disinfectant and a roll of paper towels. These items should be used by residents in these spaces to disinfect bathrooms after use.  A spray bottle of disinfectant will also be available for students in multi-stall bathrooms in traditional style residence halls, and all other multi-stalled bathrooms on campus.

    How often are bathrooms and common areas being cleaned?

    In our residential buildings all common areas and bathrooms are serviced/cleaned daily. In addition to this daily cleaning our Custodial Staff will be disinfecting touch points throughout residential buildings and academic/administrative buildings twice a day, 7 days per week. These touch points include but are not limited to: faucets, common door handles, stairwell railings, elevators, etc.

    What are Residential Life/UConn’s plans for accommodating students who don’t get housing?

    Students who are not offered housing will have the opportunity to appeal the decision by submitting the Spring 2021 Housing Appeal Request form.

    What is Residential Life’s plan to support students who may be financially insecure or facing housing insecurity?

    Any student who has financial needs should reach out to the Dean of Students Office.

    Can I have a guest in my room during the spring 2021 semester?

    For spring 2021, sutdents will not be permitted to have any guests in their room at any time (day or night), including other UConn residential students.

    Once classes begin, can I go home on the weekends?

    Students who establish residency on campus should plan to remain on campus for the duration of the contract.  Limiting potential outside exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 protects everyone in the residential community. 

    Can parents and family members visit on-campus residents this spring?

    Family members are welcome to visit their students but these meetings cannot take place in the residential buildings.  Parents and family members are considered guests and students are not permitted to host any guests in their rooms for the spring semester.

    Can I have more information about move-in?

    Information regarding spring 2021 move-in is currently being finalized.

    Can I arrive earlier or later than the designated spring move in?

    All spring residents need to arrive to campus during the designated time. There will be no early or late arrivals permitted.

    Will I be tested again upon arriving to campus in the spring? Can I get tested before coming to campus?

    All residential students will receive a COVID-19 test upon checking in. Tests must occur on-campus.

    If any student is experiencing symptoms, should they be tested?

    Yes, any student who is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should be tested for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    When a student goes to be tested, will they be moved to an isolation space?

    Any student who is tested for COVID-19 and has symptoms consistent with COVID-19 may be moved to self-isolation until the test result is final. If a diagnosis of COVID-19 is made, then the student will be in self-isolation until they have been medically cleared to leave self-isolation.

    What happens if someone living near me tests positive?

    That will depend if you are identified as a “close contact” to the individual who tested positive. “Close contacts” are household members and anyone who was closer than 6’ for more than 15 minutes to the individual during the time they were able to spread the virus. Living near someone who tests positive for COVID-19 does not necessarily make you a “close contact”. 

    If I get tested for COVID-19 at home, do I need to be tested again?

    Please visit the Student Health and Wellness website for additional information.

    Frequently Asked Questions about the end of Fall 2020/Winter Recess

    Where will I return my room keys in November?

Please remember that all students who are not approved for Winter Recess housing must leave the halls by 5:00pm on November 21, 2020.


    Keys Returned Before November 9, 2020

    Keys can be returned to the Residential Life Main Office, located on the ground floor of Whitney Hall in East Campus. After hours, keys can be returned at the Residential Life Key Drop Box, located outside of Whitney Hall.

    Can I request a room change during the fall 2020 semester?

    We realize as students continue to cancel housing, this creates open spaces in desired areas and with desired roommates.  Now that students are on campus, it is important we keep family units intact and not introduce new students to these existing units.

    Please know that we accommodated as many requests for as long as we possibly could, but at this time we are no longer able to accept any room change requests, trading spaces requests, or roommate requests.

    If I cancel my fall housing, does that mean that I won’t be guaranteed if I apply for spring 2021?

    There will be a process developed for the spring semester for any students who are interested in living on campus.  More information will be available during the fall semester.

    Will fall 2020 housing cost less if we go home at Thanksgiving?

    The University has decided to move the entire housing and dining contracts forward to begin and end 2 weeks earlier than originally planned, which means that your room rate and meal plan will cover the same amount of time, even if the calendar days differ from our original plans for the fall semester.

    If a student needs to stay on campus for any reason throughout Thanksgiving and afterward, is it required for them to have a meal plan?

    This has not been determined at this time.

    If I am unable to leave campus during winter break, how does the Thanksgiving move-out impact me?

    • Students who are not able to leave campus for the Winter Recess time period (beginning on November 21 until the start of the spring 2021 semester) will be able to request to remain on campus for Winter Recess. Requests will be reviewed by Residential Life.
    • Students who participate in Winter Recess housing must be approved to live on campus for the spring semester and will need to remain in their current assignment for both fall and spring semesters.
    • For safety reasons, students permitted to stay during winter break will not be permitted to leave campus for the Thanksgiving break.
    • More information regarding the Winter Recess process will be available in October 2020.

    I’m planning to change rooms for the spring, but I am unable to bring all of my belongings home in November. What do I do?

    All items must be removed from your Fall room by November 21, if you are not returning to the same space in the spring. We recommend looking into local off-campus storage units or storing items at a friend’s off campus, as we do not offer storage on-campus.  

    Will RAs need to remain on campus throughout Thanksgiving Recess and afterward?

    This has not been determined at this time.

    If I am planning to request to remain on campus for winter break, am I eligible to change rooms for the spring?

    Due to time constraints for cleaning rooms, students who stay on campus for winter break must remain in their fall assignment for the spring semester. 

    Will there be Husky Haulers to assist with moving items out in November or into the residence halls for spring?

    For safety reasons, students will need to transport their own  items into the buildings. Husky Haulers will not be available.

    Can my family help me move out at the end of the semester?

    Students may be allowed only one support person to assist with moving them out. Support persons and family members who are sick should not come to campus.

    If I get testing for COVID-19 at home, do I have to get tested again?

    One should assume that they will be tested again for COVID-19 when they arrive to the Stamford campus. Stamford is partnering with Hartford Healthcare for testing and we need to ensure that all residential students are being tested through the same vendor.
