Students are facing unprecedented challenges and UND will work to help all students succeed as much as possible.
- Residence halls and University Place will have one student per bedroom. If students live in a double room there will still be two sets of furniture in the room.
- All residence halls will be equipped with electronic door access.
- Wireless internet access and performance was improved in Hancock, Squires, University Place and Fulton Halls.
- Those who live in a traditional residence hall will have the bathrooms cleaned daily. Those who live in suites will have their bathrooms cleaned weekly.
- Disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer are available on every floor.
- If courses move to online-only and students are sent home during the semester, as happened during the spring semester, prorated refunds would be available for students who do leave campus. If students are unable to leave or find it is safer to stay on campus, UND will work individually with students to allow them to stay on campus, just as we did during the spring.
- There is an increased focus on student health and well-being, and resident assistants will help educate students on staying safe as well as their regular role in helping students be successful.
