Information for Incoming Students

Last updated July 29, 2020

We are moving forward with a plan to house students in private bedrooms with private bathrooms for the fall semester. To do so, we must further reduce our housing density across all building areas.

We encourage all students to thoughtfully consider to what extent it is necessary to live in Chapman housing or in the local community for the fall semester. As described in the CU Safely Back Leadership Town Hall last week, even if we are permitted to return to campus for limited in-person activities later in the semester, students will still be able to complete all coursework remotely.

If the demand for fall housing for students exceeds our fall capacity, we will use criteria including, but not limited to:

  • international student status
  • housing insecurity
  • the safety of permanent home address
  • academic programs which may be more likely to resume in-person instruction this semester when allows
  • impact of housing on student academic success to reduce housing density to the level that we can meet.
