Housing

  • In light of changes for fall, many of you are making quick decisions about classes, housing, and more.

    We want to make sure you know your housing options:

    • If you are taking all online classes and want to live on campus, you still can.
    • If you are taking all online classes and want to stay home for the semester, you can. You can cancel your housing and meal plan before move-in with no fee.
    • Of course, if you are taking some in-person and some online classes, you can live on campus.

    Please let us know your plans by going to MyIUP and completing the Tell Us Your Fall 2020 Plans form. Go to the Housing website for more information.

    Safety Measures

    We’re implementing 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.

    For students in the Cook Honors College, unfortunately the community bathroom setup in Whitmyre Hall does not allow for physical distancing, so there will be no residential living in that building. However, those students will still be together as a community in one of the suite-style residence halls.

    More specific information about safety measures in our residence halls is available on the Housing website.

    Move-In

    First-Year Students

    First-year students will move in August 15 or 16. To promote social distancing, students in each suite have been assigned different days. Go to the Housing website to learn how to sign up for a move-in time.

    Continuing Students

    Continuing students can move in August 22 and 23. Go to the Housing website to learn how to sign up for a move-in time.

    Information about what to do upon your arrival, what to bring with you, and what to do if you need to change your scheduled time is on the Housing website.

    Refunds

    As mentioned above, students who decide not to live on campus this fall need to let the Housing office know before their scheduled move-in date. This can be done through MyIUP. Directions are on the Housing website.

    Your housing and meal plan will be canceled, and the charges will be removed from your account within 48 business hours.

    Commuter Meal Plan

    Any student within commuting distance who would like to have a meal plan can select that through MyIUP. Directions are on the Housing website.

    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.
