COVID-19 and On-Campus Living
COVID Medical Single Room Accommodation Request Process
Housing accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. Once your request has been reviewed, you will be contacted about your status. You are strongly encouraged to make your housing request prior to July 15 in order for staff to ensure there is space for granted accommodations. While later requests for accommodations may be submitted, it's less likely that the university will have capacity to grant them without undue hardship.
The purpose of this process is to gather information about your request for a single room at a standard double rate, so the university can ensure it's reviewed in accordance with appropriate processes. Priority will be given to requests for a single room as a reasonable accommodation for a disability or a medical condition, including a medical condition that may put you at higher risk for complications from COVID-19. Those requests will be reviewed by the Student Access Center and the process can be initiated by clicking on the link below.
There may be other COVID-19 circumstances that warrant a single room at a standard double rate, and Housing and Dining Services will review those on a case-by-case basis. Please note the university does not have capacity to grant single rooms at standard double rates based on medical concerns for a person other than the resident. Single rooms may be available at the double-as-single rate for students who are not granted a single room accommodation at a standard double rate. All requests are subject to availability of rooms.
All residence halls, including Honors House and Smurthwaite Leadership/Scholarship House, are closed for the duration of the university's limited operations status. We miss our residents, and hope all are safe and well while the world works to slow the spread of COVID-19 and develop a vaccine.
The move-out process was completed by residents during the week of March 20-30, with the exception of those who made alternative arrangements due to illness or inability to return to Manhattan during that time.
Housing and Dining Services will refund a prorated amount of our residents' contract payments.
The Jardine Apartments Community Is Still Open
Jardine residents are not required to move out and may continue to reside in their apartments until the end of their agreement (or longer if they have renewed their agreement for 2020-2021).
If you still wish to proceed with early termination of your Jardine Agreement, please review these terms offered to you by Housing and Dining Services.
Services and support are still available to Jardine residents who remain in their units, with the following changes to protect the safety of residents and staff.
Jardine Apartments Services During Limited Operations Status
Operational Changes: The Jardine Apartments office is currently closed. We do have staff working on an as-needed basis. They will return phone calls for voicemails left at the Jardine Apartments number (785-532-3790) and will monitor the firstname.lastname@example.org email.
The Housing and Dining Services office is open with limited service in the Pittman Building. We encourage you to call the main line (785-532-6453) before going to Pittman for service, as we can likely help over the phone rather than in person.
Maintenance Services: To protect the health and safety of our maintenance staff, we can only respond to emergency maintenance issues. You can submit work orders for routine maintenance through the resident portal and we will address those requests as we are able.
Mail: Mail will continue to be delivered to the Jardine mail room but expect delays in delivery timelines. The map room is not accessible at this time so enter the mail room from the west doors or the east doors into the Building 7 laundry room.
Laundry: At the advice of health care professionals, laundry rooms remain available for use for residents.
Common Areas: Common areas, such as Frith Community Center, the Map Room in Building 7 and the seating in the Tower Building, are currently closed.
Retail Services: Our retail locations, including JP's Sports Grill and Cornerstone Coffee & Bakery, are closed until further notice.
Summer Housing and Fall 2020 Contracts
Housing and Dining Services is operating under the assumption that normal campus operations will resume this summer and fall. Please continue the contract process and room selection as planned, and we'll notify you of any changes if and when they occur.
