    Safety Measures

    We’re continuing to implement safety measures to help on-campus students observe social-distancing guidelines. Most students who live in residence halls will have a private bedroom or bedroom spaces. Some students will also have a private bathroom. If a bathroom is shared, it will be shared by no more than two students. All shared living-learning areas in the residence halls will be cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis.

    Move-In

    On-campus housing will be open and available to students beginning January 16, 2021. Housing (student) staff will return as scheduled during the week of January 11. Students will be able to return to campus starting on January 16 through February 7, from noon to 4pm daily (including weekends).

    Dining halls will be available for students starting January 19th. As in the fall, they will follow COVID-19 restrictions.

    Sign up for a move-in date that meets your need to return starting on Friday, January 8. using the following steps:

    • Log into your MyIUP account.
    • Go to Campus Services.
    • Select Housing Services to go to the housing portal.
    • In the housing portal, click on Schedule Move In Time.
    • Complete the information. You will receive a confirmation of your selection.

    You can select any available move-in window between Jan. 16 and Feb. 7, noon to 4pm (including weekends). If something comes up and you need to change your plans, you can always go back into the portal, cancel your scheduled time and select a new move-in date. Please sign up for an arrival time slot no later than January 16.

    If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not return to campus. We can accommodate your check-in at a later time.

    Refunds

    At this time, we do not anticipate changing or returning fees or payments, as facilities—including the residence halls, dining halls, health services, etc.—remain open and available to students. We will continue to review housing/dining release requests as needed.

    To request a release from your Spring 2021 housing and dining agreement, submit the Housing Release Request Form by logging into your MyIUP account, selecting Campus Services, then Housing Services, and then submitting the Housing Release Request Form.

    Off-Campus Housing Agreements

    IUP is not able to help students get out of leases for off-campus housing. Those leases are agreements between students and their landlords, and students will need to contact their landlords about options. The Student Cooperative Association's legal services can provide legal guidance for renters.
