We hope this email finds you well and rested during the summer season after a successful academic year on campus.
BC continues to plan for the August 30 start of classes. While there are still logistical details to be worked out over the coming weeks based on updated guidelines related to COVID-19, we write to provide the residential move-in timeline for August. Move-in procedures will include an initial COVID-19 test at BC, which will be required for all students, faculty, and staff who plan to be on-campus during the first semester.
In an effort to space out move-in arrivals, ALL students will need to sign-up for a move-in appointment time for their residence hall. Students arriving outside of their appointment time may not be able to check-in/move-in until the next available time (which may be the next day). During the move-in period, students will only be permitted to have one guest (who must be masked) enter the building with them to help with the move-in process. This requirement is intended to limit the number of people in the residence hall stairwells, elevators, and hallways. An email will be sent with further information on appointments and move-in logistics early next month.
As stated in the email sent by Dr. Doug Comeau, all students are asked to upload their vaccine card information to the UHS portal by August 1, and must be fully vaccinated by August 23 (or prior to move-in for those living on campus if earlier than the 23rd). Please note that any student who is not fully vaccinated and has not uploaded their proof of vaccination by these deadlines will not be allowed to move into the residence halls, and is in jeopardy of having their housing placement canceled for the fall semester.
All residential international students will receive a separate email with specific details regarding vaccinations and moving into on-campus housing early next week. This email will come from either the Office of International Students and Scholars or the Office of Residential Life.
Traditional Move-In Timeline
Early arrivals will be limited and will require advanced approval. Please note that most requests for early arrival will not be approved so as to accommodate necessary testing and health protocols.
More information will be communicated as details are finalized. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also check the BC Forward website and the Office of Residential Life website for additional updates.
We look forward to welcoming you back to campus in August!
