COVID-19 Housing Updates

Spring 2021 WSU Housing Expanded Capacity

(Email sent to first-year students 11/2/20 and FAQ)

Info for Current Residence Hall Students:

  • Masks/Face coverings are required whenever you are leaving your personal room in the residence halls (this means any time you step into the hallway). Masks are also required outside buildings when physical distancing (6ft) cannot be maintained.
  • You must complete the COVID self-attestation prior to leaving your residence hall room. You will be required to show a completed attestation when you’re at the hall desk, at the dining center, and entering other buildings on campus.
  • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people at all times. Keeping space between you and others is one of the best tools to avoid exposure to the COVID-19 virus and slow its spread. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is important to avoid close contact with others whenever possible, even if you have no symptoms.
  • Do not gather in groups inside the hall. Here in Whitman County, if you are outside the hall, gatherings of up to 10 people are allowed. Please make sure everyone is masked and maintaining physical distancing.
  • Only hall residents and staff are allowed in the residence halls. Please plan to meet any guests outside.
  • We’re here for you! You have a Resident Advisor (RA) that is excited to connect and engage (albeit mostly virtually) and a Residential Education Director (RED) to help get you get engaged and be successful this semester.
