COVID-19

3/18/2020 Update for Campus Housing Residents

Today, President Bendapudi announced an additional preventative action that our university is taking to ensure the health and well-being of students residing on campus. Our Director Dr. Tom Hardy followed up with an email outlining the following information for residents. Both emails were sent to your university email account.

Residents of our traditional and suite-style halls should depart their residence halls by March 29 at 10:00 a.m.

Effective immediately, we are prohibiting visitation in all of our residence halls. Until further notice, no outside visitors may enter the residence halls. This does not include parents assisting with move-out. We highly discourage the congregation of more than five (5) individuals in a hall space at a given time.

We encourage you to review our university’s dedicated coronavirus webpage for the latest campus-wide updates.

Residents of Traditionals and Suites

  • This includes the following buildings: Threlkeld, Miller, Unitas, Community Park, Kurz, Louisville, and Billy Minardi.
  • We are prepared to offer a credit to the student account of each traditional and suite-style resident who cancels their housing license agreementand checks out of their residence hall by March 29 at 10:00 a.m.
  • Credit amounts will be pro-rated based on the student’s check-out date as well as the cost of their current room assignment.
  • Students with delinquent account balances are ineligible for a pro-rated credit.

Residents of Apartments

  • This includes the following buildings: Cardinal Towne, University Pointe, University Tower Apartments, Bettie Johnson, and Medical-Dental.
  • The measures above are being taken in accordance with recommendations provided by our Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding social distancing. As each of our apartment units are de-densified already and have very few individuals contained in a unit, we do not perceive a hindrance to these recommendations; therefore, our apartments will remain open.

Residents Requesting to Stay

  • Residents who do not have an alternative housing option may request to remain on campus by completing the “Housing Exception Form for Spring 2020” in the housing portal. To access the portal, visit our homepage and select the red “Housing Portal” button.
  • Await a confirmation from our team regarding your request. Please know that we will take every measure to accommodate you here in a residence hall; however, your room assignment may change depending on the availability of spaces which meet social distancing criteria.

Residents Moving Out

1.      Log into the Housing Portal on our homepage to submit a Cancellation Request. This cancellation will affect the duration of your housing license agreement.
2.      Review our express check-out instructions and proceed with move-out by March 29.

Please know that we are here to assist you throughout this process. In accordance with our university’s temporary telecommuting guidelines for faculty and staff, some of our team members are working remotely during  regular business hours. For immediate assistance, please contact the front desk of your residence hall by phone. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact us via email at housing@louisville.edu or by phone at 502.852.6636. In consideration of the health of our student employees, we ask that you please contact us electronically in order to minimize in-person contact at our front desks.
