COVID-19: See our Phoenix Forward page

Safely Living on Campus

Students living on campus are part of a special community. The pandemic has made it necessary to alter many of our community standards to follow health guidelines and keep each other safe. All students living in campus housing will be expected to abide by these guidelines, which have been designed to support a healthy living environment.

Keeping our community safe must be taken seriously. Residents who fail to cooperate with these community standards may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of their housing contract and/or suspension from the university. Every reasonable effort will be made to gain voluntary cooperation from a student before engaging in the formal disciplinary process.

3 W’s + Monitoring for Campus Residents: Your Daily Housing Checklist

Residents will be expected to physically distance themselves from others in 6-foot intervals in all common areas (lounges, laundry rooms, etc.) Stay at least six feet from other people at all times (about two arms’ lengths).

Campus residents will be expected to wear face coverings in the residence halls and apartment buildings except for when in the privacy of their room/apartment.

Residents will be expected to maintain a basic level of cleanliness in their rooms/apts. Proper and frequent handwashing is expected. Sanitizing stations will be placed at various entry/exit points throughout housing, and residents are encouraged to utilize this option when leaving or returning to their campus residence.

All students are required to self-monitor for the onset of symptoms daily. Do not leave your residence if the possibility of infection exists.

Cleaning and Disinfecting

  • Housing residents are expected to clean and disinfect their personal living spaces and bathrooms on a regular basis.
  • Residents are encouraged to bring additional cleaning supplies to keep their personal spaces clean. Consider bringing your own disinfecting wipes.
  • Common areas will be cleaned daily


A sense of community is essential to the college experience. We are planning many safe and virtual options to build community and connect housing residents to one another. Plans are in place for you to get to know other residents as well as your campus resources.


All housing communities will continue to be fully staffed with the following team members:
  • Area Coordinators: These live-in professionals supervise the student staff within a building complex. They are here to assist you in your transition to college providing academic, social, wellness, and personal development support.
  • Community Advisors: These senior-level student staff live in your housing communities and assist the Area Coordinators with day-to-day operations, community development and staff supervision.
  • Resident Assistants: Your RA is your go-to person for all concerns on your floor/wing. Whether you want to get more involved, are in the middle of a roommate conflict or are simply wanting a person to talk to, your RA is ready to assist you.

Guest Limits: Residence Halls and Apartments

In light of the continuing health and safety concerns regarding COVID-19 the Office of Residence Life is making updates to the guest policy until the COVID 19 Pandemic concern passes. The policy was drafted in order to protect the students, faculty and staff of the UW Green Bay community. 
  • Only UW-Green Bay students will be able to be guests within the Residence Life buildings. Residential students who may need to meet any non-students, such as family members or significant others, to exchange an item or get a ride, will need to make arrangements to meet outside of their building.
  • Expectations regarding guests within your room/apartment must be outlined in detail in your Roommate Agreement form. Until a completed roommate agreement signed by all roommates is on file, no guests are allowed within your room/apartment after move in day.
  • No guests will be allowed to stay overnight. Residents may not host any guests during quiet hours.
  • Guests may only be present for a total of three hours at a time.
  • All guests and their hosts are expected to wear a face covering during their time together on campus. 
  • Residents may only have one guest at a time per residence hall room space and a maximum of two guests at a time per apartment space, regardless of how many residents occupy the room/apartment.
Whether you have a non-resident student guest, or are just interacting with other residents of your hall, please follow these guidelines at all times.
  • Before inviting a guest to your room/apt, confirm with all other roommates to ensure they are comfortable with the guest’s presence. If they are not, respect their request for health and safety of themselves and others.
  • Residents are encouraged to utilize outside space for gatherings with resident or non-resident guests. Please be aware of room capacity limits which will be posted within each common area lounge space. 
Violations of the guest policy will result in hall staff asking a guest to immediately leave, hosts will have additional consequences regarding guest policy violations. Violations of policies which may have a negative impact on the peace, quiet or safety of the community may result in termination of your housing contact with only 48 hours to move out.
