Health and Safety Guidance


Your well-being - and the well being of our communities – is our top priority. Please take a moment to read  the precautions and policies WVU will implement this fall to keep you safe. 

These policies are effective immediately in preparation for the fall semester and the need to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Failure by a student to follow these requirements could result in sanctions under the West Virginia University Campus Student Conduct Code. 

  • Residents are required to wear masks in all public spaces where residents may interact with others in close proximity, when distancing is not possible.  
  • When possible,  residents are always expected to stay at least six feet away from each other.  
  • Residents are required to follow all posted directional signage and capacity limits of  designated spaces (e.g., elevators).

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your property manager. We will work with local, state and federal health government experts to provide the safest and healthiest living community for our residents and staff. We encourage our residents to visit for the latest guidelines. We have also provided additional guidance on how to protect yourself and your fellow Mountaineers.  

We’re confident that together, we will create a safe WVU home for you. 


  • All tours will need to be scheduled in advance, by contacting the property directly.
  • Each tour is scheduled for an hour to allow for proper cleaning/disinfecting time.
  • Two person per tour max, plus the tour guide.
  • Masks are required at all times and physical distancing where possible is strongly encouraged.
  • Sitting or leaning on furniture is not permitted.
  • Doors are propped open so handles are not touches. Any door unable to be propped can only be opened by the staff member giving the tour.
  • After each tour, proper disinfecting will take place in all areas where the tour occurred.
  • Guest cards will be filled out and submitted using personal electronic devices.
  • After each tour, guests will be provided with a thank you gift of a WVU mask, individually bagged, and a single hand sanitizer - per person. (while supplies last)


Under no circumstances will visitors be permitted to enter your residence once it has been placed under quarantine and/or isolation. Please advise your friends, family and any other personal contacts of this policy.

Failure to comply means that you may be putting others at risk of exposure, even if you are an asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic carrier of COVID-19.
