COVID-19 Updates and Policy Changes

The siutation regarding COVID is on-going, rapidly changing, and constantly evolving. If any new information speicfically regarding the RC becomes current, we will post it here. In the meantime stay tuned to updates and information regarding testing on the Campus Blue Print website . Additionally, info may be found on UHS's website:

Update 4/4/21


Good Morning,

This message is intended for all current RC students who will be entering their sophomore year, junior year, or senior year in fall 2021. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding throughout the pandemic, and especially in regards to the RC's residential requirement and request to live on-campus in East Quad. As you may have read in the recent update regarding the fall term, incoming first-year students will be prioritized in assigning residential placements. 

As a reminder, the RC's residential requirement was waived for all current first-year students for 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.

In addition, we know many of you are interested in returning to EQ for your sophomore year, junior year, or senior year, especially those who have not yet had the opportunity to live on campus. For these students, we are encouraging you to complete the UM Housing application and to indicate "RC enrollment" in regards to "Academic Need." Please understand this does not guarantee you a residential placement on campus, nor specifically East Quad.

We understand this is disappointing news, and we, too, are saddened at the prospect of a fall term with our community less connected. However, we are encouraged by the many stories we have heard of RC connections happening even despite the pandemic, and we will do all in our power to continue fostering the strong, vibrant, and supportive RC community.
