Fall 2020 Move-In for International Students

International students have options about when they arrive to campus.

Visit this page often. The information below is subject to change per developments in COVID-19. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: International students who have been in any of countries listed on this CDC page may not enter the United States at this time. If you are traveling from any other country not on the prohibited list, the CDC requires that you self-quarantine for 14 days following these CDC guidelines. For international students with a 2020-2021 residence hall housing contract, University Housing will provide quarantine accommodations starting August 1. It is recommended you arrive to campus by August 9 so that you can complete your 14 days of self-quarantine prior to the start of classes. More information, including how to request Quarantine Housing, will be shared soon.
