How will housing policies be changed to protect the health and safety of students?

The College is pleased to welcome students back to residential life on campus, though this too will look and feel different. Students are able to reside in double rooms, though the college will not be utilizing triples or quads for student housing.

A draft of the Fall 2020 Housing Policy can be found here

Students are required to comply with health and safety laws, orders, ordinances, regulations and health and safety guidance adopted by the State of Maryland, local Health Department, and McDaniel College as it relates to the COVID-19 crisis. These guidelines will evolve as the public health crisis evolves and may include, but are not limited to, social distancing, limitations on group gatherings, COVID-19 diagnostic and surveillance testing, contact tracing, wearing a face covering, disinfection protocols, limitations on guests into residence halls, and quarantine/ isolation requirements. Adherence to health and safety requirements applies to all residents, staff and visitors and extends to all aspects of residential life, including bedrooms, bathrooms, lounges, outdoor spaces, and other common spaces.
