Students are strongly encouraged to return to their family home and stay there during this period to promote social distancing and minimize the risk of spreading the virus. If you have no other living option available, contact University Housing at 662-915-7328 to arrange a place to stay. Campus dining and other services will be available to those students on a limited basis.
Students are expected to stay away from campus and participate in classes from home. The public health imperative to maintain social distancing and avoid large gatherings creates a challenge for our on-campus residents to retrieve their belongings safely from our residence halls. The university is developing and will announce an appointment-based system at a later date for students to return to campus to retrieve personal belongings from their residence hall or university-owned apartment. Our operating environment has many unknowns at this time, so the timeframe for these appointments will be dictated by public health considerations. All residence halls and rooms will remain locked until further notice, so your rooms and the possessions in your rooms will be secured. Students are not authorized to return to University Housing facilities until further notice. Additional details will be sent as available.
For students who live in fraternity and sorority houses, additional information will be forthcoming from the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life as that office coordinates with national and local chapter leadership.
Each faculty member will make decisions about the best means of course delivery in light of the nature of the course. Please monitor your Ole Miss email and your course webpages for details.
