Our Commitment to Health and Safety
Your health and safety is our priority, and we wanted to outline how we're focusing our efforts to make our residence community a place for you to live, learn and flourish. In consultation with our local health authorities, we've enhanced our health and safety standards, while implementing physical distancing measures. Watch the video below to see a number of health and safety strategies being implemented in residence this fall.
Enhanced Cleaning Procedures
High-touch surfaces are being sanitized more frequently, and we have expanded our caretaking staff schedules from five, to seven days-a-week, with an extended presence beyond traditional business hours.
New Sanitization Technology
Our caretaking team has adopted new technology to mitigate the spread of germs. Using new electrostatic sprayers, our team is disinfecting large spaces more effectively and efficiently.
Floor decals indicate where you should stand when you're queueing for assistance in the dining hall or at the front desk. Signage indicating capacity limits in common areas—such as elevators, study rooms, and floor lounges—will have occupant loads featured prominently.
Food Safety and Service
Dining halls will have a host stationed at entrances to monitor capacity and provide sanitizer and disposable gloves. More pre-cut food options will be used, and food will be served in takeaway containers by our staff.
Access to Cleaning Products
Portable and wall-mounted hand sanitizer stations have been specifically placed at high-traffic areas, and cleaning supplies will be made available to students who would like to sanitize their space.
Plexiglass has been installed at residence front desks and dining hall cashiers, and physical distancing signage has been posted throughout the building. Face coverings are required in the presence of others and in common areas, and will be provided to all students, faculty and staff members.
