For residence hall accommodations, DePauw is relying on the up-to date best practices and guidance from the CDC. University-owned housing will all be single occupancy rooms except where requested by the student(s) or in UOAH, in which residents live as a family unit.
Privately owned Fraternity and Sorority residences will each determine student room assignments within their facilities. House Corporations will make additional adaptations in consultation with their national organizations, insurance providers, CDC guidance, and DePauw Health and Safety Recommendations and Requirements. Per Residential Standards in the Student Handbook, Fraternities and Sororities will be required to submit their room designation plans to Student Academic Life. Fraternities and Sororities will have the opportunity to consult with Student Academic Life and the Health and Safety Pod in order to address facility specific adaptations and needs.
These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated 1.12.21)
