Dear students,

Greetings and Happy New Year! We hope that everyone enjoyed a joyous and restful holiday. Due to the high transmissibility of the COVID-19 omicron variant and the rapid increase in positivity rates nationwide we are taking strong measures to protect you and the entire campus community.

To accommodate the necessity of students to gain access to the dorm room before Monday, Jan. 24, we will offer an opportunity for students to access their dorm room.

This "pop-in" window will allow you to make a quick visit to your dorm room to retrieve items you need for remote learning before full access to the campus is restored.

The "pop-in" dates for students will be Friday, Jan. 7, Monday, Jan. 10 and Tuesday, Jan. 11 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. These are the only days and times available for this entry to campus before Monday, Jan. 24.

You must schedule this visit using the "pop-up access January 2022" link below. You will be required to take a rapid COVID-19 test when you arrive on campus. No guest will be allowed to accompany you into campus.

Pop-up Access January 2022

Upon arrival at the campus gate, you are required to sign in with Public Safety and proceed to the Beverly Tatum Suites Private Dining Room where you will take a rapid COVID-19 test.

You must wait at the testing site until you receive your result. If your result is negative, you may then proceed to your dorm room. If your test result is positive, you will be required to leave the campus immediately. There will be no exceptions made should you test positive upon your arrival to campus.

You will be limited to a total of 60 minutes: 15 minutes to complete the required rapid test and then 45 minutes to grab what you need from your dorm and leave. You must test, grab and go!

You are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing for the duration of your visit.

For any questions or concerns you may reach out to Yemi Brown, Manager of COVID-19 Operations, or 404-270-5407.

We are taking these mitigating measures to protect you. We thank you for compliance, patience and understanding as we work to keep our campus safe.
