Fall 2020 Notices

Updated: October 19, 2020

Dear Residence Hall Students,

As we move beyond the shelter-in-place timeframe and work to get back to more regular schedules, I want to follow up with you on some things.

Your Investment Matters
First, thank you to everyone who has been adhering to expectations, keeping up with email, and bringing forward questions as they arise. We have heard from so many that you truly want to be here on campus, despite some of the challenges and limitations. I speak for all of us in Residence Life when I say we want that, too. Our work is to support your success as a student and help you grow and develop along the way. To achieve these goals, it is critical that we all do what is necessary to keep our residence halls and community safe from the spread of this virus.

Keys to Success
You are already aware of the need to wash your hands, wear your mask, and watch your distance. As a matter of policy, you must wear a mask anytime you are in the residence hall unless you are in your room, in the shower, brushing your teeth, washing your face, or eating. When you are done with these, please put your mask back on.

While the COVID-19 guidelines might seem simple, there are many variances and interpretations, especially in certain scenarios—inside or outside, with your roommate or with others, eating or not eating, etc. Since March, we have been faced with considering the risk level of what used to be our typical daily activities. We all know that making low-risk choices during the pandemic is integral to remaining healthy and on campus. Attached is some new guidance that I hope will provide clarity regarding some of these common activities.

Additionally, I recognize that we are entering colder months and that socializing outside will be getting more difficult. Many of you have also expressed concerns with the limitations of being able to socialize with others inside your residence hall. We are not ready to change the residence hall guest policy; however, I want you to know we are considering other modifications that would allow more socialization with others in your immediate residence hall community. Stay tuned for more information about this in the next week or so.

Fair Warning
There are two specific expectations that Residence Life staff must hold every member of our community accountable to:

  1. You must adhere to the guest policy. You cannot have anyone other than you and your roommate in your room, you must not allow anyone else into your own residence hall, and you must not enter any residence hall other than your own.
  2. You must get tested on a regular basis. You will receive notice via email with your testing window and deadline which will be approximately every two weeks or more often if necessary.  Positive COVID-19 cases within the residence halls will be monitored closely. We can only minimize the spread when we are aware of the cases. Regular testing is our only tool to address this issue, especially since people who are COVID-19 positive can have it and not know it.

To keep each member of our community safe, violations of these policies will not be tolerated within the residence halls. If you do not adhere to the guest policy or do not meet your testing obligations, you will be facing removal from the residence halls. It is not possible to manage a safe residence hall environment without upholding these expectations.

Location Doesn’t Matter
We are counting on you and those around you to practice low risk behaviors everywhere. Chancellor Foster has addressed that attending or hosting gatherings on or off campus is prohibited. We are also encouraging you to limit travel home and to other locations away from River Falls. If you do go somewhere, it is imperative that you and those around you practice the same things we are expecting from you while on campus and in the River Falls community. It doesn’t matter where you are. Your decisions will impact the potential of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

Looking Ahead
Some of you have begun to ask questions about Thanksgiving, winter break/J-Term, and spring semester housing. Please know that we are working on plans and will be communicating with you in the weeks ahead. I recognize you’ve received many emails from our office and others, but please continue to read them and respond accordingly!

One Final Thought
While we cannot fully predict or control COVID-19’s impact on our future, as a community we can all work together to minimize its effects and focus on the things that bring us comfort, joy and a renewed emphasis on our educational goals. There is a South African philosophy called Ubuntu. Roughly translated, it means I am because we are. Ubuntu is defined as a pervasive spirit of caring and community, harmony and hospitality, respect and responsiveness that individuals and groups display for one another. It is my hope that as we adjust to living with the threat of COVID-19 on our campus, we will consider the lives and experiences of our neighbors, vote in the upcoming election, and bring more Ubuntu into our lives.

Thank you for hanging in there with us, for asking your questions, and being an important person in our future success.

With Falcon pride,

Karla Thoennes, Ph.D.
Director of Residence Life

Dear [Resident]:

As you learned from Chancellor Foster’s most recent email, UWRF is implementing a mandatory testing policy for all residence hall students as part of its efforts to manage the spread of COVID-19 cases on campus and support the gradual lifting of the recent shelter-in-place.

Here is a guide to help you navigate the launch of mandatory testing at UW-River Falls: 

If you are currently sheltering-in-place on campus:

  • You must get tested between Thursday, October 1 and Tuesday, October 6.
  • Card access will be turned off for any student currently on campus who has not been tested or we have received and verified documentation from you of previous test results (see below) by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 6.

If you chose to shelter-in-place somewhere other than on-campus:

  • You must get tested between Wednesday, October 7 and Sunday, October 11.
  • You are not authorized to schedule a test before Wednesday, October 7.
  • You must not return to campus before your selected testing timeslot.
  • If you have already scheduled a test that is prior to Wednesday, October 7, please cancel the earlier test and re-schedule for an available slot between October 7 and 11.
  • Card access is not available for students sheltering elsewhere and will not be turned back on until you have been tested or we have received and verified documentation from you of previous test results (see below).
  • Faculty have been notified that due to the testing guidelines and parameters you may not be able to be back on campus prior to Monday, October 7. They have been asked to show flexibility in accommodating your needs.

 

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS


How do I get tested?  

  • Visit the GetTested website
  • Complete the online screening and schedule an appointment
  • Get tested.
  • It’s that easy! 

What are the testing hours?

  • Testing for students currently on-campus is available from 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 1 through Tuesday, October 6, including Saturday and Sunday.
  • Testing for students currently somewhere other than campus is offered 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7 through Sunday, October 11.
  • There is a limited number of tests each day, so it is extremely important that students schedule only during their authorized dates.

How do I provide documentation of previous test results and what will be accepted?

  • Submit a Campus Testing Exclusion form and provide documented proof of either having tested negative in the last 7 days, or of having tested positive in the last 90 days and having completed your isolation time.
    • Students that have tested positive (and completed their isolation time) will need to upload their positive test result and/or public health release paperwork. Positive test results need to be within the last 90 days to be considered a release from testing. If over 90 days, you are considered plausible for a re-infection and are subject to testing again.
    • Students that have tested negative in the last 7 calendar days need to provide test confirmation showing the testing method (PCR or Antigen) and that it was negative. It needs to show that it was from a reputable source such as a health care provider or lab
    • Please upload a photo image, PDF, or other file that shows the test results for verification.  Your upload must show your full name, date of the test, testing provider and the determined result. You may upload multiple supporting documents.

What if I test negative?

  • If you test negative you are good to go back to your room and carry on with your regular activities – homework, lunch, hanging out with your roommate.
  • Mark your calendar to be tested again two weeks from the date of your test and every two weeks thereafter.

What if I test positive?

  • If you test positive, you’ll meet with a member of the Intake Team at the testing center.
  • Isolation arrangements will be made for you.
  • You’ll be asked to return to your room to pack a bag with two-week's worth of clothes and everything you’ll need to carry on with your courses online. Your card access will be de-activated until you are released from isolation.

What if I am already in quarantine or isolation?

  • If you are currently under orders to isolate or quarantine you must not return to your residence hall until you have officially been released by public health.

What if I choose not to get tested?

Any student refusing to be tested or to provide required documentation as described above will not be permitted to return to their residence hall. This includes students who left campus during the shelter in place as well as students who choose to leave campus at some future point to serve a required quarantine or isolation period at home or at another off-campus location. 

All residence hall students must comply with testing protocols and our return plan. Any refusal to do so will jeopardize your housing contract and may result in your status as a student to be reviewed.  See UWRF policy AP 01-128 for more information.

Thank you for your compliance with the directives above. If you have further questions, I encourage you to attend the Student and Employee Town Hall tomorrow, October 1 at 3:30 p.m. Information about the town hall is available here.

 

Sincerely, 

Karla Thoennes, Ph.D.
Director of Residence Life

Dear Student,

This evening, UW-River Falls announced a move to remote learning for two weeks and a shelter-in-place plan for all on-campus residents.

We did this because the rate of COVID-19 transmission has increased to a level where the university, in collaboration with Pierce County Public Health, needs to respond.

We understand you may have questions and concerns. Our hope is that this email can help answer some of those questions and concerns.

Shelter in Place: What does it mean?
As Chancellor Connie Foster shared Friday evening, UWRF students living in residence halls are being asked to do the following:

  • Stay on campus
  • Don’t go home
  • Don’t go to work, if possible
  • Don’t leave campus for unnecessary trips
  • You may leave your room and go outside
  • You still can get meals in the University Center
  • You must follow guidance already provided regarding quarantining or isolating

Will the residence halls remain open?
Yes. The residence halls will remain open to all current residents, and we strongly encourage you to remain in your residence hall.

Even if you have left campus for the weekend, you will still have access to your residence hall.
Overall, continuing to live in your residence hall may protect the health and safety of other UWRF students, your loved ones and the larger River Falls community.

Daily life in the residence halls: How will it change?
All university and Residence Life community standards and guidelines remain in effect. That includes requirements to cooperate with testing and tracing protocols.

You should still wear a mask outside your own room and practice physical distancing.

Do not have guests in your room, and do not visit other residence halls. Only those who live and work in the residence hall are allowed.

Access to laundry, kitchens, and common areas will remain the same at this time.

Overall, residence-hall resources may be limited during this time. We recognize the need for mail services, especially during this time. The Hathorn Mail Center will be closed this weekend. We will communicate as soon as possible how we'll safely distribute mail in the coming two weeks.

What expectations must be met while living in the residence halls?
Your individual actions will help lead to UWRF’s overall success in containing COVID-19. Follow all guidance provided by UWRF, including:

  • Continue to abide by all university and Residence Life community standards and expectations.
  • Continue to live in your residence hall but limit contact with others.
  • Socialize only with those who reside within your specific wing/floor/pod community while maintaining distance and wearing face coverings.
  • Avoid contact with others outside of your immediate community.
  • Be more vigilant than ever: Wear your face covering. Wash your hands. Watch your distance from others.
  • Sanitize surfaces that you are near and touch before and after use.
  • Use only the bathroom designated for your specific wing/floor/pod community.
  • Do not stay off campus where you could potentially spread the virus to family or friends.
  • Do not attend gatherings or parties.

Should I take a COVID-19 test?
UWRF strongly encourages students to take COVID-19 tests. Those identified as intermediate or close contacts are required to follow testing procedures outlined by the Contact Tracing team. Learn more about testing and schedule a test.

What if I want to leave the residence halls?
During this time, UWRF residence halls are not closing.

If you move out of your room and take your belongings, this will not terminate your residence hall contract. Students may submit a Contract Termination Request, although approval isn’t guaranteed. Requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis as time allows.

If I choose to leave, will I receive a refund for housing?
No. The residence halls remain open and accessible to residents. UWRF cannot guarantee refunds for those who choose to leave their residence hall.

Overall - your behavior as a member of the Falcon Family matters. With the recent growth in positive cases of COVID-19, we've seen its impact to our entire community and the UWRF student experience.

By following health protocols, you're doing something important – you're protecting our community and our ability to fully engage on campus during this shelter-in-place period.

We care about your safety and well-being. Please take care during this time.

Dear Student,

We are looking forward to you living on campus this fall at UW-River Falls!

As you are aware, campus life will look and feel different because of COVID-19, but we are committed to working together to make your experience a positive one. Your commitment to the health and safety of our community is vital and every resident will need to adhere to new guidelines, including:

    Cleaning common areas (kitchens, study lounges) after use
    Not having guests in the hall or in your room
    Maintaining six feet of social distancing when possible
    Abiding by occupancy limits outlined for our various common spaces
    Allowing custodial staff to properly clean spaces during designated cleaning times

It will also be important to think about how you choose to socialize when away from the halls. It is especially critical to stay away from places that are crowded and to avoid mass gatherings. Your decisions may impact your ability and the ability of others to attend class, visit family, or maintain employment. If you have a roommate(s), it is strongly recommended that you discuss these topics prior to returning to campus and continue these conversations while on campus.

Our staff is committed to helping you have a successful year. We are reviewing various strategies to get everyone connected and engaged. We will be diligently checking in on your experience. As you continue to make decisions about your fall experience, please review the following:

Medical Single Room Request
A medical single room request lottery will be open from July 6, 2020 at noon until July 9, 2020, at 4:30 p.m. Single rooms are available on a limited basis with an established priority that emphasizes health and well-being. Students with COVID-19-related medical concerns can submit a request for a single room at the double room rate through the housing portal. Single rooms will continue to be available for students with ADA-related accessibility needs at the standard rate. Students who are approved for single rooms will be notified July 14, 2020.

Learn more about how to submit a medical single room request here.


Single Room Lottery
A single room lottery will be open July 6, 2020 at noon until July 9, 2020, at 4:30 p.m. Students who do not have a medical need for a single room but are interested in one can sign up for the single room lottery in the housing portal. If there are single rooms available after medical single room requests are met, we will use the lottery to determine single rooms. Students who are lottery approved for a single room will be notified on July 14, 2020. We will keep a lottery wait list and if a single room becomes available, we will contact you.

Learn more about how to enter the single room lottery here.

 
Roommate Request-Only available to students who do not have a room assigned for fall 2020
The roommate request section in the housing portal will be open from July 15, 2020 at noon until July 19, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. If you want to request a roommate or change a previously accepted roommate, you must do it during this time period. If you are searching for an upperclass student who has a room assignment for fall 2020 and can’t find them in the roommate search, contact Residence Life for assistance. After the section closes, no additional roommate requests or changes will be accepted. Rooms and roommate changes will not be possible after July 19, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.

Learn more about how to select a roommate here.

To verify your roommate request, visit the roommate search section in the housing portal. Your confirmed roommate request will be listed in that section.


Room Swap-Only is available to students who lived on campus spring 2020
If you would like to do a person-to-person swap or switch into a half open room, you must send an email to reslife@uwrf.edu requesting access to the room swap section in the housing portal before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 17, 2020. You will NOT have access until you complete this step. Room swap will only be open in the housing portal from July 15, 2020 at noon through July 19, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Please plan accordingly. If you want to room with a student who doesn’t have a room assigned for fall 2020, you need to contact Residence Life for assistance.

Room Assignments
Room assignments will be emailed to your UWRF email account the week of July 27, 2020. The room assignment email will contain the hall and room you are assigned to, as well as your roommate’s information if you were assigned a roommate.

Please visit our website and contact us with questions.

As we are preparing for fall semester, we know it is likely you have several questions about living on-campus this fall. I hope to address some of your questions in this email and provide a glimpse into communication you can expect from our department moving forward and throughout the rest of this summer.

First, know that we are dedicated to the continued health and safety of our residence hall and campus communities. Guided by several resources, including our local public health professionals, we must take extra measures to enhance the safety of our residents and staff and mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19. These actions include reducing occupancy in some of our residence halls, extending our move-in dates and adjusting our move-in process, implementing new safety-related policies and expectations, and enhancing cleaning practices in the residence halls. Additionally, we recognize that delivery methods have changed for several academic courses, and we want to accommodate students whose courses will be all or mostly online.

Room Assignments
Room assignment information will be sent to all fall residents by the end of July. Prior to this, we will be taking several steps to confirm student housing needs and the spaces that will be available for occupancy.

Commuter Policy Extended
The commuter policy has been updated for the 2020-21 academic year, providing more flexibility to students who wish to commute from home. Students can now commute from the residence of a parent, legal guardian, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or older siblings if the residence is located within 40 miles of UWRF.  See full details and request form here. Students who are approved to commute will receive a $100 refund of their housing deposit if the Commuter Policy Form is completed and postmarked by July 6, 2020.

First and Second-Year Student Online Learner Exemption
The Online Learner Exemption Request is for any first or second-year student who 1) graduated high school after 2018; 2) will have only four credits or less of face-to-face classes for fall 2020; 3) will live with a parent/legal guardian; and 4) is not otherwise commuter-eligible. See full details and request form here. Students who are approved will receive a $100 refund of their housing deposit if the Online Learner Exemption Request Form is completed and postmarked by July 6, 2020.

Upper Class Student Online Learner Contract Cancellation
Fall 2020 contracted students who do not fall under the two-year residency policy who have only four credits or less of face-to-face classes for fall 2020 may choose to cancel their contract. Students who submit their cancellation request for this reason by July 6, 2020, will receive a $100 refund of their housing deposit. See information about how to cancel here.

Residence Hall Guest Policy
We all play a role in reducing the risk to ourselves and others in spreading COVID-19. Just as societal policies and expectations have changed, policies and expectations for our campus, and especially the residence halls, must also change to lessen the risks associated with COVID-19. More information about expectations and policies will be forthcoming, but we want to make you specifically aware of changes in our residence hall guest policy.

With few exceptions, persons allowed in each residence hall will be limited to residents of the hall and staff who must work there. No outside guests will be allowed at any time other than during move-in. Additionally, residents may not have guests in their individual rooms, including other residents of the hall. Hall residents may meet and visit with each other in common areas so long as social distancing and room occupancy limits are upheld.

As More Information Becomes Available
Information regarding selecting a roommate and single room requests will be communicated over the next two weeks. Fall move-in plans are in progress and information will be shared as it becomes available.

We recognize we don’t have all the answers yet, but we are committed to do our best to provide relevant and timely communication. Please check your @my.uwrf.edu email account regularly for updates. We will also post new information on our website.  Finally, look for an invitation to participate in our Residence Life Live Chats hosted online in July and August.

Thank you for choosing to live on campus. We hope you have a safe summer, and we look forward to providing a memorable experience when you join us this fall!

Dear Residents,

UW-River Falls Chancellor Dean Van Galen in his letter to you on March 20 shared that UWRF has been authorized by UW System to reimburse the prorated charges for housing and dining from the end of Spring Break through the end of spring semester for students who have left the university prior to the end of their contract. Students who have vacated the residence halls will receive a prorated reimbursement.

Housing reimbursements will be processed by Friday, April 17. Unfortunately, crediting these funds toward future semesters in lieu of a refund is not an option due to rules related to the awarding of federal financial aid.

If you have signed-up for direct depositing of refunds, great! Any refund due to you will be deposited via ACH into your designated checking or savings account within two to three days. If you have not signed up, you still have time. Click this link for instructions. You can also email billing@uwrf.edu if you need assistance. Otherwise, a refund check will be mailed to your home address listed in eSIS.
Watch your UWRF email for additional information.

Thank you,
UWRF Department of Residence Life
