Hello from the Department of Housing and Residence Life at Methodist University!
We are delighted to welcome you to campus in a few weeks. This message contains important information regarding move-in weekend, so please read carefully.
In the interest of the health and safety of our Monarch Family, all students and families must wear a mask while moving in and while in the gathering spaces of our residence halls. It is the policy at Methodist University that face masks or face coverings must be worn by all employees, students and visitors on campus when in the presence of others and in public settings (e.g., common work spaces, meeting rooms, classrooms, etc.).
Please limit the number of helpers you have during move in to two (2) extra people. This will help us practice social distancing to the best of our ability. You may also wish to consider bringing limited items so that your move in and potential move out processes go more quickly. Please visit our checklist for more information on what to bring and what NOT to bring, including newly updated supplies such as extra masks, soaps and cleaning supplies. Orientation information will be available soon on the MU website.
In order to encourage social distancing during move-in the following time table has been created:
Friday August 7
8 am – 12 noon “Families With Underlying Medical Conditions” For more information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-at-higher-risk-old.html
