Quarantine & Isolation Housing

Quarantine/Isolation housing is being offered for residential students who have:

  • Tested positive for COVID-19
  • Have been exposed to an individual positive for COVID-19. 

Currently, we are housing individuals in designated buildings within the West Apartments. 

If you test positive for COVID-19 or are exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19, you will not be permitted to remain in your residence hall space and you must move to Quarantine/Isolation housing.

As of April 10, 2021, individuals traveling domestically from outside of New York or coming from outside the United States are no longer required to complete a precautionary travel quarantine. This includes students moving into campus housing. Specifically: 

  • Asymptomatic travelers entering New York from another country, U.S. state, or territory are no longer required to test or quarantine as of April 10, 2021.
  • Quarantine, consistent with the CDC recommendations, is still recommended for all travelers who are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from laboratory confirmed COVID-19 during the previous 3 months.
  • Symptomatic travelers must immediately self-isolate and contact the local health department or their healthcare providers to determine if they should seek COVID-19 testing.

This guidance is subject to change and we recommend any out of state and international students check the travel advisory website ( NYS Travel Advisory Information) regularly beginning about a month prior to their scheduled arrival on campus.

The buildings are staffed by full-time professional staff. One of these individuals is available 24/7 via a phone number posted on the back of every bedroom door and emailed to students when they are placed into Quarantine or Isolation. You may reach out to them with any questions or concerns that you may have about your stay in Quarantine or Isolation housing. 

Please review the FAQ below and if you have any questions, please contact the Quarantine/Isolation housing team at the phone number or email address provided.
