Special information for on-campus residents

Please immediately call your residence hall front desk and inform them that you plan to seek a test so they can assist you with self-quarantine afterward. Please pack back a small bag of clothing, toiletries, your phone and laptop, charging cables and any prescription medications you may need before you head to the testing site as you will need to go into quarantine housing after you are tested.
