In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Athens-Clarke County (ACC) has declared a local state of emergency and adopted a local ordinance imposing shelter-in-place requirements applicable to individuals and businesses in Athens-Clarke County.
The health and wellbeing of residents is University Housing’s highest priority. We have revised to our rigorous cleaning protocols, increased the frequency of touchpoint disinfection and added soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, hand sanitation stations and sanitizing wipe dispensers in all buildings. Moreover, we will remind residents that a healthy environment is their responsibility, too. Every small act is a reminder that we’re in this together.

Frequently Asked Questions about Housing
Residents of on-campus housing who test positive for COVID-19 will not be allowed to stay in their residence hall during their isolation period and will be encouraged to return home. If this is not a viable option, the university is holding a limited number of beds for quarantine and isolation. Student Care and Outreach (SCO) can arrange for housing and meal delivery based on individual circumstances and will continue to notify faculty should students report a positive COVID-19 test result through DawgCheck.
