Spring 2021 Move-In Process
Haverford will continue to be an all singles environment for the Spring 2021 semester. This choice is intended to help decrease the chances of spread of the virus by providing each student with a separate bedroom and opportunity to social distance.
Staggered move-in will occur February 5 - 11. Residential Life has built and distributed the sign-up form. Note: all students will be on campus quarantine for 14 days following arrival. For students who were here on campus last semester, the upcoming start of the Spring semester will feel familiar.
Haverford will continue to be an all singles environment for the Spring 2021 semester. This choice is intended to help decrease the chances of spread of the virus by providing each student with a separate bedroom and opportunity to social distance. The College will evaluate the decision to revert to double-rooms for the fall and communicate that decision with students before the Fall 2021 Room Draw held at the end of the spring semester.
Students can choose to move off-campus at any time, but should consult the Controller’s Office regarding room & board refunds. Students may commute to campus. This includes first year students, in a Fall 2020 exemption from the first-year residency requirement. We will work with students who are not in residence but need to drive to campus for class and activities.
Residence halls will remain open through this period.
Social Distancing Guidelines
All students will be required to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines regarding 6-foot social distancing, frequent hand washing, and face coverings in all campus spaces, except in your own dorm room.
Students Residing Abroad
Per CDC recommendations, all students residing abroad will need to be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival to campus and will be quarantined until their results are available.
To minimize the potential for vectoring and to support the health of the Haverford community and those with whom our community members interact, visitors to campus will be permitted on the Haverford College campus only as authorized guests. Download the Campus Access and Guest Policy (PDF) for details.
Dorm & Building Access
Students will have access to only their individual dorm via the OneCard system. Students will need to utilize their OneCard to access administrative and academic buildings.
Students will be responsible for cleaning their individual rooms and apartments. Facilities will be instituting enhanced and frequent cleaning of hallways, common spaces, and community bathrooms per CDC and Pennsylvania guidelines.
Food Pantry & Food Deliveries
The food pantry will be open. We are asking students to follow health/safety guidelines when accessing the pantry. Students can also have groceries and other necessities delivered to campus.
