Residential Move-in

  • On your scheduled COVID-19 testing and move-in date, your first stop on campus will be our testing site –before you arrive at your residence to unload your belongings.
  • If you test negative for COVID-19, you will proceed to your residence check-in site and begin your two-hour window to move into the residence halls. Students may have up to two persons assist them with their move-in process.  Family members and friends need to be prepared to depart residential facilities within those two hours.
  • If you test positive for COVID-19, and have traveled to campus via car, you will be asked to return home to complete isolation. You will receive specific instructions about isolation and the timeline for your return to campus.
  • Students will have a two-hour window to move their personal belongings into their housing assignment with a limit of two others assisting with the move-in. At the end of the two-hour move-in time, parent/family member will need to exit the campus in order to support social distancing and low density within our residential areas.

All residential students are encouraged to bring only what is needed for the fall semester. Information about our “Explore More, Bring Less” program will be sent to all residential students.

What to bring: “Explore More, Bring Less”
  • The Spring 2021 semester will require the University to be nimble in all aspects of campus life. As such, students are encouraged to take a minimalistic approach as they pack for the start of the semester.
  • This shift in approach for many students will create a smoother move-in and move-out for all. If the need arises for an emergency revert to remote operations (as it did in Spring 2020), the process will be much easier if students have taken with them to campus only the most-critical personal belongings.
  • In order to meet the personal health guidelines outlined for all students, and to be prepared to complete your academic coursework, each student should bring the following:
    • Personal computer or tablet.
    • Thermometer.
    • A sufficient supply of disinfectant wipes or spray and anti- bacterial hand sanitizer for the semester.
    • Multiple face coverings.
    • Necessary personal belongings such as seasonal clothes, bedding, and limited room decorations.
Physical distancing in campus residence spaces
  • Maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you and anyone with whom you don’t live in the following spaces:
    • Common areas in the residence halls.
    • Hallways, stairways, and elevators.
    • Communal restrooms. Maximum capacity will be reduced.
  • Visitors and guests in residential living
    • La Salle Residential Communities has implemented a No Guest Policy in place through February 15, 2021.
    • The guest/visitor policy will be reviewed/evaluated after this date and updated as needed.
      • Residential Communities are only permitted to be occupied by the assigned resident of the facility. The No Guest Policy (NGP) includes no visitors between any units, to include rooms, apartments, and townhouses.
      • The only exception to this policy is during the scheduled move-in or move-out process where Residential Students will be permitted a max of 2 guests to assist them for a designated time block.  Face masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times.
    • If students wish to have parents or family visit, they may do so on the main campus in open-air spaces.  Face masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times.
    • Residential students should be aware that it is unlikely that the guest policy will expand to include non-residential student visitors, whether they are commuter students or non-affiliates.
