Residence halls

Visitors to our residence halls

Updated Oct. 15, 2020

Summit County has returned to Level 3 or red status, indicating very high exposure and spread.

In this elevated state, we are limiting visitors to the residence halls. Only other UA residence hall students are permitted as guests in your residence hall room, and the limitation of one guest per resident remains. For instance, if you live in South, your friend from Bulger may visit your room, but your friend who lives off campus may not.


Quarantine is required for resident students who enter Ohio from a state with a high positive test rate for COVID-19. See details.

Face coverings

Face coverings are required in all common areas, including hallways, lounges, bathrooms and kitchens. Face coverings are not required in individual private bedrooms. Face covering guidelines for campus.

Download Dining Services' plan for fall 2020.

Some things to be aware of this fall semester:

  • A full explanation of the dining operating plan is available on the University’s Return to Campus webpage.
  • Self-serve buffets are no longer offered due to the pandemic. All food is portioned for you. If you would like more, just ask.
  • Disposable service wear is available throughout the dining hall. Self-serve metal service ware locations have been eliminated.
  • Robertson Dining Hall has one third of its normal seating capacity. If you don’t wish to be seated, or seating is not available, you may choose to take your meal to go. Just ask the cashier.
  • Because there is limited seating at Robertson Dining Hall, please be courteous to others by vacating your table within 30 minutes.
  • Please ensure that you pay attention to the signage and practice physical distancing.
  • Please visit the Dining Services webpage for information on menus and location hours.
  • Please wear a mask while at the food locations. If you are at Robertson Dining Hall, you must wear a mask if you are not seated.

Once again, welcome to campus, and please be a little patient as we all adapt to the new safety measures that will help keep our campus safe while providing a pleasant dining experience.

Thank you,

Thomas J. George, Aramark district manager

Nathan J. Mortimer, CPA, UA vice president of operations
