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. Habits such as wearing masks, staying six feet apart, limiting visitors and washing hands will be crucial to preventing illness from spreading. Every small act is a reminder that we’re in this together. For updates and FAQ, please visit https://housing.uga.edu/site/notices.
