April 28 - To resident students: Fall room selection

Dear resident students:

I hope this email finds you healthy and that your online courses are going well. Residence Life is planning for our fall opening and we are about to offer room selection for this coming year over the next few days. Our hope is that all resident students will be able to return and live in campus housing this coming semester. Given this information, we have decided to offer room selection at our normal capacity in our residence halls.

We also know that in the uncertain times created by COVID-19, we will need to plan for contingencies. We are therefore considering options that might need to be put into effect if guidance from the state of Rhode Island and the Department of Health requires us to do so. Social distancing, mandated group sizes, etc. could all impact decisions regarding future housing. Please know that if any of our plans change we will communicate the information as quickly as possible, and we ask for your patience and flexibility as we work through solutions to the situation. If you have any questions, Residence Life is available to assist you.
