TRAVEL UPDATE: Change in Governor’s Order

Earlier today Governor Whitmer announced a new Executive Order that both extends the Stay at Home Order until April 30th and increases travel restrictions. Please read carefully to determine how the Governor’s Executive Order may apply to you:

If you have moved or are planning on moving to another residence in Michigan:

  • If you move tomorrow (Friday, April 10th), you are permitted to relocate to another residence in Michigan.
  • Michigan residents are not permitted to travel between residences from Saturday April 11th through Thursday April 30th.
  • You are not permitted to retrieve your belongings between April 11th through April 30th. This means if you left property in your room but are residing elsewhere, you cannot return to retrieve your belongings until after April 30th.

If you have moved or are planning on moving to a residence outside the state of Michigan:

  • You are permitted to move to another residence that is out of state as a condition of this order.
  • Even if you are an out of state student, you cannot move to another residence in the state of Michigan from April 11th through April 30th. This may apply to you if you are securing off campus housing for the summer or after.
  • If you live or move out of state without checking out, you are not permitted to retrieve your belongings between April 11th through April 30th. This means if you left property in your room but are residing elsewhere, you cannot return to retrieve your belongings until after April 30th.

These changes from the Governor are sudden and we want to assure you that we will work with you if you need to lengthen your stay. If you will now be staying on campus as a result of the executive order, please email us at housing@mtu.edu and we will assist you.
