What Information is Available for COVID-19 Regarding Housing?


COVID-19 Housing Information

Current CDC guidance considers residence hall living as a “lower risk congregate setting due to the lower risk of severe outcomes associated with young adults” and recommends campus housing follow general public guidance for quarantine and isolation.

In accordance with this guidance, residents are encouraged to have a plan to relocate off-campus in the event they need to isolate or quarantine. Housing will still offer limited dedicated on-campus isolation or quarantine housing if residents choose to isolate themselves away from roommates on-campus. Students who test positive are strongly encouraged to isolate to the best of their ability, preferably off-campus.

During the isolation period you should:

  • Monitor your symptoms and if you have an emergency warning sign, including trouble breathing, seek emergency medical care immediately.
  • Stay in a separate room from other household members, if possible.
  • Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
  • Avoid contact with other members of the household and pets.
  • Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
  • Wear a close-fitting mask when you need to be around other people. Masks can be obtained at the locations found on the Lakers Together site, as well as the residential desks.

If you have any questions, please reach out to housingcovid@gvsu.edu.

*This procedure is in accordance with the current CDC guidelines and GVSU Alert Levels and may be subject to change.

COVID-19 Dining Information  

Students in isolation or quarantine may leave their isolation or quarantine to obtain food, as long as it is a grab-and-go option, and taken back to the isolation or quarantine setting to consume. For those wanting grab-and-go from Kleiner or Fresh, please email housingcovid@gvsu.edu with the anticipated end-of-isolation date and specific location you plan to use so Laker Food Company can be alerted. Students must wear a close-fitting mask (preferably a KN95 or N95) while they are in public and common areas.
