As part of its ongoing efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and prioritize the well-being of students, Sullivan Foundation partner school Campbell University will provide all residential students with private accommodations during the upcoming academic year.
“As we prepare to reopen campus this fall and welcome new and returning students, their health and safety is of the utmost importance,” said Dennis Bazemore, vice president for student life at Campbell. “We believe providing private rooms for all residential students is one of the major steps to achieve that goal.”
“We have reviewed our housing facilities, and we have the space to spread out our residential students, so we have taken this challenge and turned it into an opportunity to benefit them,” Bazemore added.
The university will waive its private room fee of $800.
Students do not need to take any additional steps to receive a private room beyond completing the standard housing application. The application should be submitted by July 15. No further action is required by students who have already submitted the application or received a housing assignment.
Eligible students will still have the option to request to live off-campus.
Campbell University said it will continue to follow CDC recommendations in regards to cleaning and disinfecting campus property. Residence halls will be cleaned and disinfected before move-in. Following move-in, the university will continue to clean and disinfect residence hall public spaces and bathrooms. Residence Life staff will ensure students are maintaining their private spaces appropriately.
