Covid Safety Guidelines

Move-In Spring 2021

  • Symptom Tracking Requirements (All Students)
  • Student-athletes will receive move-in information through team communications, and should follow those instructions and guidelines.
  • All other students will be welcomed back to campus on January 30-31, 9am-Noon, 1pm-4pm in Broyhill Chapel.
  • Two weeks prior to your return to campus, please resume entering  your daily temperature and symptom checks into the SWOL website.  The entries will be monitored by university staff. Click here for a how-to guide for using SWOL.
  • In an effort to increase safety in the era of COVID-19, we recommend testing, if possible, three days prior to your return day. You will also be tested upon your arrival to campus. We will send more information about that and ongoing testing protocols for Spring semester at a later date.
  • Once students have shown a negative test result they will receive a wrist band to indicate they have been cleared and are invited to move back into their residence halls.
  • Students may bring family to help them with their return to campus—note that only two guests of the resident may be in the residence hall at a time.
  • Masks must be worn at all times in the residence halls during move-in.
  • More information regarding all return-to-campus details will be communicated directly to students, through our website, and in our next parent/family newsletter. (Sign up for that newsletter here.) Please be reminded that, as the regional and local situation changes, some of these details may have to change in accordance with campus, county, and state regulations.

  • Wear a face mask anywhere on campus where more than one person is present.
  • Wait 6 feet apart. Practice social distancing by staying six feet apart from others.
  • Wash your hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer. The number of sanitizing stations has been increased in buildings around campus.

Before you return to campus, you must:

  • Complete COVID-19 online training modules. Please watch your email for further communication on this training and other steps that may need to be taken before your return to campus.
  • Complete all necessary paperwork. Check self-service and contact your admissions counselor (for new students) or the appropriate office (if you are a continuing student.)
  • Bring several personal masks, which may be laundered and reused. The university recommends that you purchase and use seven masks, and launder once a week. Masks will be required for any personal contact on campus. If you find yourself without a mask on a temporary basis, a limited number of disposable masks are available and can be obtained by calling Campus Security 828-689-1230
