How COVID-19 Affects Housing

Liberty University has increased cleaning and will continue to disinfect high traffic and touch areas. These measures are taking place across campus, including in the public spaces of residence halls.

All students are encouraged to individually practice safe and healthy habits inside the residence halls. Steps such as frequent hand washing and avoiding touching your face and mouth can contribute to a healthy living space.

Visitors will be permitted inside the residence halls this semester, unless otherwise specified on the ORL webpage. Students should communicate with their roommates on having visitors (overnight or temporary) in their room.  If a student is uncomfortable with a visitor in their room, their roommate should refrain from inviting a guest into the room.

While visitors are permitted, Open Dorms will be canceled for the Fall 2021 semester.

Rooms at the off-campus Annex I facility have been prepared for isolation and quarantine. On-campus students who test positive for COVID-19, are presumptive positive, or who are symptomatic after having recently come into direct contact with someone with COVID-19, may isolate/quarantine at the Annex I facility or another quarantine location. Asymptomatic students who are awaiting test results or who have come into direct contact with someone with COVID-19 will quarantine at an asymptomatic quarantine location. Asymptomatic students with an approved vaccination record on file will not have to quarantine.

When students are instructed to isolate/quarantine, they will receive an email with their room assignment location and instructions.

  • All on-campus students have the option to isolate/quarantine at approved off-campus locations (such as the home of a family member or friend of the same gender), should they prefer to do so.
  • Students who become symptomatic of COVID-19 during their quarantine at an asymptomatic quarantine location may be moved to the Annex I facility for the remainder of their isolation period.
  • Roommates of students approved for quarantine in their own room on campus are permitted to remain in the room.
  • Through partnership with LU Transit and Sodexo, meals will be delivered or available for pickup to all students assigned at the Annex I.
  • Students will be emailed each day and must sign up for meals each day through the Meal Request Form. Further instructions, such as pickup times, location, etc., are available through the daily email.
  • Students who are approved to quarantine in their room may pick up a to-go meal from the Reber-Thomas Dining Hall. Students will be emailed each day and must sign up for meals each day through the Meal Request Form.  Further instructions, such as pickup times, location, etc., are available through the daily email.
  • Wi-Fi is available at all locations for students to maintain academic progress.
  • Residence Life staff will deliver other necessities and maintain communication with each student throughout their quarantine.
