Living on campus

Residence hall move-in
  • All move-in will be by appointment only, a cart will be available for each family to transport belongings and will be cleaned between uses.
  • Returning student move-in will begin Aug. 27 and conclude Aug. 30 by appointment only. 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.
  • New student (first year students and transfers) move-in will be held by appointment only. New students will also have a two-hour window to move in 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.

Full move-out at the Thanksgiving break

Students will be required to complete a full move-out at the end of the Fall 2020 semester (no later than Nov. 25, 2020). This will allow for a deep cleaning of campus housing in anticipation for a return to campus at the beginning of the Spring 2021 semester.

  • Housing for students who have circumstances that prohibit the ability to return home during the winter break will need to apply for extended housing. This option will be very limited this year and only with the approval of Housing.
What to bring: “Explore More, Bring Less”
  • The Fall 2020 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 will not be permitted within University residence halls during the first two weeks of the Fall 2020 semester. After that, the guest/visitor policy will be reviewed and updated as needed. If students wish to have parents or family visit, please contact housing@lasalle.edu to make arrangements.
