At the start of Spring Quarter, all students who live in campus residential housing are expected to stay at home for most purposes for seven days, to help continue our success in limiting the spread of COVID-19 in residence halls. Under the directive, on-campus students must remain in their residence halls as much as possible for a seven-day period, unless going out for essential needs such as groceries and food, medical care and supplies, and outdoor exercise. The seven-day directive applies to students living in residence halls to help limit the risk of spreading the virus in large communal living settings on campus.
Anyone living off campus in Chicago, including students, academics, and staff, must follow the City of Chicago’s Emergency Travel Order when traveling.
The University is continuing the suspension of University-sponsored international and domestic travel until further notice due to COVID-19. In addition, non-essential personal travel is strongly discouraged. Any member of the University community who chooses to travel must follow local guidelines for quarantining and other COVID-19 measures at the destination and upon their return to Chicago.
