Covid-19 Health Informed Policies for the Residence Halls

We hope you are enjoying the last days of summer and getting excited for arriving on our campus in the Fall! I am writing to you quickly today to touch base about an Executive Order recently signed by the Michigan governor and its impact on our campus. I would also like to share with you some pertinent information about our COVID-19 and health-informed policies.

On July 29th, Governor Whitmer released an Executive Order impacting the Upper Peninsula region, stating that indoor social gatherings need to be limited to no more than 10 people (previously it was 50). In reviewing the move-in model we have shared with you, we can continue with our plan as announced if everyone does their part, but need to reinforce the following:

  • You can only bring two guests total to campus during your move-in. We cannot provide any additional flexibility on this, especially with the new guidance given.  Upon completion of move in, students will be subject to the visitation policies listed in Husky Alert Level Three in the COVID-19 Health-Informed Policies document below.
  • You and your guests are encouraged to monitor your symptoms for 14 days before coming to campus. Students are encouraged to submit the Daily Symptom Tracking Form during those 14 days and are required to submit it daily once you arrive on campus, including the day you move in. The symptom tracker will be verified as part of the check-in process. Guests should submit the Visitor Symptom Tracking Form the day they plan to be on campus, prior to arrival. Free COVID-19 testing will be part of the move-in process and we encourage you to participate. Please keep an eye out for an email from Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center with information on how to complete your registration, and please complete your registration before Move-In Weekend.
  • If you or your guests experience symptoms related to COVID-19, please don’t come to campus. Contact us so we can assist you and find you another move-in date.
  • You and your guests must wear face coverings at all times while in the residence halls. Once you have moved in, face coverings are not required in your room.
  • You and your guests must make every effort to practice six feet of physical distancing and avoid congregating in groups of 10 or more to uphold the Executive Order.  

For your convenience, I have also attached our COVID-19 Health-Informed Policies. You can review these policies and make any preparations necessary. New students will receive a detailed email outlining the check-in process the week of August 16. Early next week, I will write again with additional information on what to expect in the residence halls. We are looking forward to ensuring you have a great experience in your Husky home when you return in the Fall.

If you have any questions, please contact housing@mtu.edu 

Sincerely,
Matthew WeekleyDirector of Housing Auxiliary Operations and Residence Education

Early Property Drop Off and Storage Agreement
Residence Education and Housing Services-Fall 2020

In an effort to reduce move-in congestion, Residence Education and Housing Services is offering students a single opportunity to drop their property off in advance of when they move in for Fall.  This optional courtesy allows you to set up your room prior to the start of the year.  Here is the process:

Complete an Early Property Drop Off Request and select a day/time that works best for you.  
You must complete the request at least 72 hours prior to your arrival.
You are only able to sign up once.  Multiple drop offs cannot be honored.
You can select a drop off between July 31-August 9 from 9am-5pm.  
Housing will send a confirmation email verifying the day/time you selected and provide procedures on how you and up to two guests can properly move in.
On the day of your drop off, prior to coming to campus, you and your guests will be required to complete the Daily Symptom Monitoring forms for students and visitors:  
You and your guests will be required to complete the Daily Symptom Tracker ( site goes live July 27) on the day you are to travel to campus.  According to the CDC, people with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.  People with the symptoms listed below may have COVID-19. If you or your guests have experienced the symptoms listed below for a reason not attributable to a known condition other than COVID-19, then please do not come to campus and contact housing@mtu.edu to reschedule your drop off:
Fever (100.4 F or higher) or chills
Cough
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue
Muscle or body aches
Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Sore throat
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Diarrhea
You will report to your residence hall front desk on the day/time assigned and be given access to your room (no keys will be given).
You will check in with a staff member when you arrive and out with a staff member when you leave (no later than 5pm).
You and up to two guests can enter the building. You will be required to wear face coverings & adhere to the social distancing guidelines while in the residence halls.
You must keep all devices unplugged until you move in later in August.  
When you return to move in, check in to get your key, and you’re done!
This is a courtesy being offered to students and their families who are in need of additional flexibility to move into the residence halls for Fall semester.  There is no cost for you to participate, however you must agree that you are storing your belongings at your own risk and Michigan Tech takes no responsibility for the property you leave in the room. You understand that no service is offered beyond a locked residence hall room.  The residence halls continue to be closed and room doors will be locked once a student leaves.  This is not a request for an early arrival to live in the residence halls prior to Friday, August 21. 

TERMINATION OF HOUSING:  Should you or the University terminate your housing contract after you drop your property in the residence halls, you will be required to remove all property within 48 hours of your contract cancellation.  Housing reserves the right to remove property from a room that is no longer contracted to a student.

ROOMS INELIGIBLE FOR EARLY PROPERTY DROP OFF:  While we have done everything we can to make this process available to everyone, unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts the following rooms are unavailable for early property drop off:
Wadsworth Hall 400E-428E and 451E-463E

Early Property Drop Off Agreement
By submitting my Early Property Drop Off request, I understand and agree to the following:

I am eligible to participate.  TO BE ELIGIBLE, I MUST:
♦ Be a registered student assigned to a residence hall space
♦ Complete the visitor and student symptom tracker on the day I plan to arrive.
♦ Ensure at the time of my arrival my guests and I have not been diagnosed with Covid-19 AND ensure that my guests and I do not have two or more of the following related symptoms:  have a temperature of 100.4F or higher, have unusual coughing, have unusual trouble breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell. 
I will work in good faith and do my part to reduce traffic on Move In day by moving the majority of property during the drop off so on my assigned move in day I am picking up my keys only.  
I am permitted to drop off my property one time on the day and time Housing has approved and communicated to me. I cannot return for additional early drop offs.
I am offered early property drop off as a courtesy and not paying for any services associated with this request.
I will adhere to all safety policies and procedures.  I will wear the necessary face coverings at all times and will practice social distancing of six feet to the extent possible between individuals while dropping off property in the residence halls.
I will ensure that any guests assisting me also adhere to all safety policies and procedures, including wearing a face covering and practicing social distancing of six feet.
I am storing my property at my own risk and take full responsibility for everything I leave in my room.  
I will not plug any property into electrical outlets and will keep windows closed.
I will not live in the residence halls until my approved move in date and this request is for storing my property only.   
I am understanding by applying for Early Property Drop Off, I am accepting of the terms above and understand that Michigan Tech is only offering the service of a locked residence hall room door as a courtesy. Michigan Tech assumes no liability for property left in the room.  I understand my roommate may also participate in this process and will have the same access to the property in the room as I do.  I understand that Residence Education/Housing Services staff as part of their standard preparations for opening will enter my room to complete routine room condition documents.  Lastly, if I terminate my housing contract anytime after I drop off my property, I will remove my property from the room within 48 hours of my contract cancellation.  I agree that if I do not do so the Housing staff has the right to remove my property from the room.

If you are agreeing to these terms, you can proceed to the application links below.  Please note that links are different for new and returning students.

Move In Information for Returning Students

Dear Returning Residence Hall Student:

Welcome back! Since I started in March, I have been eager to invite you back to the home you’ve made on campus. We’re thrilled to have you return and can’t wait to continue the Husky traditions that you have enjoyed. New challenges await us all, but with a combination of creativity, tenacity, and a positive attitude, we will work together and create an opportunity that will reward you with friendships, memories, and amazing experiences.

To achieve this, a community effort is needed to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. For the upcoming fall, we’re calling on all students to take action and work together to keep the community safe. Residence Education and Housing Services is committed to doing our part and has put together a move-in process that works to maximize physical distancing, outlines safety protocols for you and your guests, and allows you to safely move into the residence halls. With more than 2,000 students moving in, we need all students and their guests to do their part and adhere to the protocols.  

To help ensure safety and appropriate physical distancing during the move-in process, all returning students will be required to sign up in advance for a move-in appointment. The number of students who can sign up for each time slot is limited, so please plan accordingly. To give you as much flexibility as possible, we are waiving the $50/day early arrival fee. Students may arrive on Wednesday, August 19, or Thursday, August 20, at no additional cost as part of the appointment process. Students who select these early dates will still need to plan accordingly for meals, since meal plans don’t start until Saturday evening. Students can schedule their move-in appointment by completing the Returning Student Move-In Appointment Form.  

We are also offering all students an additional opportunity to drop their property off between July 31 and August 9 (from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day). This is a new (and free) service to allow students to skip the traffic and drop off their property earlier to their campus home. If you are interested, watch for an Early Property Drop-Off application to arrive in your MTU email inbox around July 20.

We want to ensure you have a safe and positive experience returning to the Husky community. We will share more information about the check-in later in July to help you finalize your preparations. Until then, we hope you enjoy your summer!

Sincerely,

Matthew R. Weekley
Director of Housing Auxiliary Operations and Residence Education
Michigan Tech University

Move In Information for New Students

Email sent to new residence hall students on July 8, 2020.  Please check your Michigan Tech email for your personal move in details.

Dear Student:

We are excited that in less than two months, you will be joining us here at Michigan Tech to begin your college journey. We know coming to campus for the first time is a cornerstone moment for you. Despite the COVID-19 challenges, our goal is to allow you to have a safe, wonderful check-in experience.

To achieve this, a community effort is needed from you and the rest of the Michigan Tech family. This fall, we’re calling on all students to take action and work together to keep the community safe from COVID-19. Residence Education and Housing Services is committed to doing our part and has planned a New Student Check-In Day that maximizes social distancing, outlines safety protocols for you and your guests, and allows you to safely move into the residence halls. With thousands of students moving in over the weekend, we need all students and their guests to do their part and adhere to these protocols to ensure the process remains safe. 

For fall 2020, all new students have been assigned a specific check-in time during one of two days: Friday, August 21, and Saturday, August 22.

This is a new (and free) service to allow students to skip the traffic and drop off their property at their new campus home earlier. An email with the application link will be sent out the week of July 20. If you are interested, make sure to submit your application.

ASSIGNED CHECK IN DATE/TIME: (New student’s assigned date and time)


Want to transition into a Daniell Heights apartment?

Attention current, returning, transfer, and graduate level students:

We’re excited to let you know of an opportunity for our current, returning, transfer and graduate level students to secure a 2 bedroom housing accommodation in Daniell Heights.  For a limited time, we are waiving the age requirement of 21 or older and allowing any current, returning, transfer, or graduate level student who is at least 18 years of age or enter into this agreement.  Highlights include:

  • A 2 bedroom apartment with the student approved monthly rent rate ($1040).
  • All utilities are included (water, electric, gas, cable, internet).
  • A contract holder can have up to two additional co-tenants signed into the space, but is the primary individual who works out the monthly rent payment each month and maintains apartment control.
  • You are not required to have a meal plan.
  • Contracts will run August 15-June 30.
  • We will work with you and roommates to transition your residence hall contract into a Daniell Heights contract.
  • First Year students are NOT eligible for this offer, however transfer students can be given consideration if they’ve completed a year at a qualifying college/university.

Full information about the apartments and terms can be found here: https://www.mtu.edu/housing/options/graduate/daniell-heights/

We are offering this opportunity to current, returning, transfer, and graduate level students through Monday, July 6 at 5pm.  We only have a handful of apartments left and anticipate high demand.  If you are interested, click on the link above and complete the Daniell Heights application (students) form on the right side of the page.  Make sure to select the option that indicates that you are 21 and over (don’t worry, we will correct that information later).

If you have any questions, please contact us at housing@mtu.edu .  Enjoy the rest of your summer.


Daniell Heights Apartments Available

Daniell Heights is normally reserved for graduate students, married or partnered students, students with children, and students over the age of 21. However, we are making exceptions right now for other current or transfer students who may want to live more independently and privately in an apartment instead of the residence hall.  This change would not be a contract release.  This change would be a change in the room assignment and contract type.  There are similarities and differences between Daniell Heights apartments and the residence halls that you need to know if you wish to consider this option.


Daniell Heights apartments are part of the on campus housing community.  All of the utilities (gas, water, sewer, electricity, trash, internet, and cable) are included like the residence halls.  Laundry facilities are located in each Daniell Heights apartment building.  Free to wash, quarters to dry.  Parking permits for vehicles are required, but parking is conveniently located throughout the apartment complex, often in front of the building.
Contracts for the Daniell Heights are also different from the residence halls.  Rent is due on a monthly basis on the first day of the month and is on the student account.  A meal plan is not required because each apartment has a full kitchen for your use. The first day of the contract would be August 15, 2020 and the last day of the contract is June 30, 2021.  This means the contract is for the Fall, Spring, and Summer Track A.  The contract does not end with the last day of the spring semester like the residence halls.

In Daniell Heights, you have the option to share your apartment with another person that you choose.  Housing Services does not assign random roommates there. Housing Services does not provide additional furniture if you add a roommate. You can add your own additional furniture if you wish, but all of the furniture that comes with the apartment needs to stay in the apartment.  A two bedroom apartment will come with furniture for two people. You can view pictures of the apartments online: https://www.mtu.edu/housing/options/graduate/daniell-heights/

If you want to change your housing assignment from the residence halls to Daniell Heights apartments instead, there is no contract release fee.  Housing will make the update for you.  You can request a one or a two bedroom apartment.  If you want to make the change, please complete the Daniell Heights waiting list (student) form here.  You will be prioritized for a change because you already have a residence hall contract.  
https://www.mtu.edu/housing/options/graduate/daniell-heights/

If you prefer more independence, a private bathroom, a private kitchen and other conveniences an apartment can provide, this may be the right change for you.  If you have questions, please email housing@mtu.edu 


Daniell Heights Fire Suppression System Upgrades

Dear Residents,

As you know, fire suppression system upgrades began yesterday. Here is a reminder of a few things:

Storage spaces must be clear of items that are not locked in storage lockers.  Anything left on the floor or other locations not reserved will be disposed of and the tenants of that building will be charged for disposal.

Work will be restricted to M-F 9am-5pm, weekend or after hours work will need to be approved and tenants will be notified.  See schedule below.

Work will NOT require contractors to enter any apartments.  Work is restricted to common areas and boiler rooms.

Work will require water to be shut off for up to 2 hours per building.

Water may be cloudy or dirty immediately after work is completed.  Tenants should run water for a few minutes to clear the line of any sediment that is disturbed.  Water is safe to drink after flushing.

The schedule for the rest of the week will be as follows:
Wednesday: 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010
Thursday: 2012, 2102, 2104, 2106, 2108, 2110, 2112
Friday: 2101, 2103, 2105, 2107, 2109, 2111, 2113

This should conclude the project. If any follow up work need to happen next week, you will be notified.


New Executive Order directive requiring masks

Email sent to residence hall students on April 27, 2020 from Director Matthew Weekley:

I write to you today with regard to the extended “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order from Governor Whitmer, which includes updated directives for the state of Michigan, effective through May 15. As many of you are preparing to move out of the residence halls, we want to make sure you are aware of the new requirements as you plan your departure:

Students are once again permitted to travel between residences and move to a new residence.

  • This is a loosening of the previous order and allows both in-state and out-of-state travel between two residences. 
  • Students are encouraged to minimize travel between residences as much as possible in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Students are required to wear a personal cloth mask that covers their nose and mouth in enclosed public spaces outside of their floor. This requirement includes guests visiting the halls to assist with move-out.

  • Students are not required to wear a mask in their own shared living space (their residential floor) but should wear a mask in enclosed public spaces, such as the dining hall or grocery store, or while visiting the front desk for services.
  • Guests assisting with move-out cannot be permitted in the residence hall unless they are wearing a cloth mask that is covering both their nose and mouth. Guests must wear their cloth face mask at all times throughout the building.
  • If you are a student who has NOT been residing on campus, and are returning to your room to retrieve your property, you are required to wear a cloth mask in all areas of the residence hall.
  • For guidance on the appropriate usage of masks, visit the CDC’s Use of Cloth Face Coverings web page.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MOVING OUT

  • For students actively living in the halls, as a reminder, the halls close May 2 at NOON. All door access will shut off at this time, so make sure to move out by NOON.
  • For students who are returning to campus to get their belongings, you must contact housing@mtu.edu in advance with your arrival date so arrangements can be made and access can be restored to your Husky Card. Property retrieval must occur by May 16. 

REMINDER ABOUT SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS REQUIRED DURING MOVE-OUT

  • No more than two individuals who are not in the same residential housing facility can assist a student. As stated above, all individuals must wear masks that cover both their face and mouth.
  • Individuals assisting with move-out may not have a temperature of 100.4°F or higher, cough, trouble breathing, or otherwise feel ill.
  • Individuals who have had direct contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days are not permitted to enter the halls to assist with a move.
  • All individuals must adhere to social distancing at all times, maintaining a distance of six feet from others, except when jointly carrying a heavy object.

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.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
