Fall 2020  

7/29/20 HOUSING UPDATE

Per University announcement, students who wish to cancel on-campus housing in the suites or at Reinhard Villages can do so without penalty. This is a temporary release from your contract due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We would expect the 2-year living requirement to resume in the future.  Please complete the Contract Release Request and submit it to reslife@clarion.edu by Friday, August 7, 2020.  If at any time you would need to return to housing, please contact us and accommodations can be made.

If you wish to remain in campus housing, there will be new expectations for residents who live in the campus suites as well as Reinhard Villages to keep our communities safe:

  • Outside guests are not permitted

  • Masks are to be worn outside of your room in the residence hall at all times

  • Physical distancing must take place

  • Common kitchens/RV fitness area will be closed and only available through a key sign-out process.  The RV pool will be closed.

  • Study lounges will be limited with seating and physical distancing will be required

  • CDC quarantine guidelines need to be met if you or your roommate(s) show symptoms of COVID-19.  More information can be found on our Fall 2020 page under the HEALTH AND WELLNESS tab.

Please plan to arrive to your campus housing on your scheduled move in day/time that was previously assigned.

RETURNING FOR SPRING 2021

If you want to return to housing for the spring semester, you will need to resubmit a housing application that will be available later in the fall semester.  We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but we cannot guarantee the same room or same roommate at this time. If you already paid the $200 housing application fee for fall 2020, you will not have to pay it for the spring.

7/29/20 DINING UPDATE

Dining venues will be restricted and occupancy limits set for locations.  Fall 2020 Dining requests have not yet been processed.  We ask that you re-submit your dining plan choice here and we will process all requests that occur after July 30.

Dealing with Roommate Issues

Living with roommates isn't always easy. Sharing a living space may be stressful, and conflicts may arise. Sometimes situations that work at the beginning of the year become more difficult as the year goes on; remember that college is a time when students grow and change which can certainly impact even the healthiest of roommate relationships. It is perfectly normal to have roommate conflicts.  Please click here for more information.
