Prevention & Preparation

In the event a resident experiences symptoms or is required to quarantine, Housing Services has set aside self-containing units. The Residence Life team will address residents who report feeling unwell or have any COVID-19 symptoms. These students will be directed to COVID Resources and required to complete the UofL student illness self-registry. To learn more about how we will support our quarantining students please refer to Quarantine in Residence.

See Covid General Information

In order to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus, all students in residence must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Follow social distancing guidelines:
    • Masks are required in all common and shared community spaces (lobby, hallways, stairwells, laundry rooms, garbage room)
    • Keep two meters away from others
    • Students in residence are prohibited from having guests during the pandemic
    • Gatherings and parties are not allowed in residence during this time
    • You are encouraged to use delivery or pick up services where possible
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least twenty seconds
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms:
    • Symptoms include cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat
    • If you experience any of these symptoms, self-isolate immediately, then alert your facility’s RAD
    • Sick individuals must be tested
    • If your condition deteriorates rapidly, seek medical help immediately


We recommend you prepare a COVID Kit. In the event a student needs to relocate to a self-isolation unit, having items prepared in a COVID kit will facilitate a quick and convenient move and help keep others safe.
