Saint Louis University, in consultation with local health departments, as well as SLU’s own public health and infectious disease experts, developed plans to safely house residential students for the fall 2020 semester.
- Rooms in residence halls that would typically house three or four students (i.e., triples and quads) have been limited to two students each (doubles).
- Some apartments have been reserved for isolation and quarantine space.
- Strict public health safeguards have been adopted for all on-campus housing.
- Common areas in residence halls have been reconfigured for reduced seating and occupancy. In some cases, common areas are closed for the fall. Cleaning and sanitizing of public and community spaces, including community bathrooms, have been increased.
- No off-campus guests or visitors are allowed in residential spaces during the fall term. This includes non-SLU guests and SLU students who live off campus. Students who live on campus will be able to visit one another in residential buildings.
- Face masks will be required in all common areas, including hallways, elevators, laundry rooms, etc.
- Plexiglass barriers have been installed at residence reception desks and hand sanitizer stations have been installed at all residential building entrances. Residents also have access to sanitizing wipes for common areas and high-traffic surfaces.
- Training on public health measures, COVID-19 symptoms, and appropriate response has been provided for all staff who live in residential buildings, including student staff.
