Where can I find up to date information on the University’s response to COVID-19? The most detailed and up-to-date information on the University’s response to COVID-19
can be found on the COVID-19 Response Status page.
What if a student living in the residence halls does not feel well and is experiencing
symptoms? Individuals with concerning symptoms or who have had potential close contact COVID-19
exposure, are encouraged to contact the Moffitt Health Center or their primary care
provider to discuss their symptoms and schedule an appointment for testing. While
an individual is waiting for test results, one MUST remain in their residence hall
room, in self-isolation.
Will there be designated areas to temporarily isolate students who live on campus
if needed? Yes. Upon notification of a positive case within a residence hall, the individual(s)
who test positive for COVID-19 will be temporarily relocated to a separate designated
room for the 14-day self-isolation period. They should follow the case management
program as instructed by the Moffitt Health Center or their primary care provider.
Housing and Residence Life maintenance staff will deep clean and sanitize the student's
initially assigned room while the student is self-isolating in the temporary room.
If the resident has a roommate that was exposed, the roommate may also be temporarily
relocated to a separate designated room for the 14-day self-isolation period.
What are my responsibilities as a student living on campus? Wash your hands with soap and water. Keep your room/suite clean. Practice "physical
distancing" from others and avoid sick individuals.
Where can I get help if I am concerned or anxious about COVID-19? Student Counseling services offers some helpful tips for dealing with the disruption that COVID-19 brought to our lives. They also offer
individual counseling to help students take care of themselves.
