As stated in President Machtley’s recent email, we have developed procedures to allow you to safely retrieve the belongings you still have in your residence hall in the event that we are not able to open the campus again before the end of the semester. A final decision on reopening the campus will be made on or before April 17. However, because you may be in a situation where it is advantageous for you to move your things out of your Bryant room now regardless of the decision on April 17, we urge you to consider that alternative. We know this is a difficult time and resulting decision on move out but we want each student to make their own decision based on their particular situation. We have worked hard to develop procedures that will facilitate the move-out process while adhering to social distancing guidelines giving everyone maximum flexibility to accomplish move out.
Step 1 – You can schedule a date and time to move out by
completing this application.
Even if the campus opens for the last two weeks, there is a significant
advantage of clearing out now and returning later with only two weeks’ worth of
gear. As we all know some states with
growing cases of Coronavirus may not be allowed back into the state of Rhode
Island in the future. Waiting until April 17 could theoretically put your
chances of returning if you reside in one of those states after April 17 in
jeopardy. All requests must be received at least 48 hours in advance of the
date you anticipate returning to campus. Students will only be permitted
to bring two guests to assist with the move-out. Students who reside in a
state where a “Shelter in Place” order is active will not be able to make an
appointment to move-out until the order is lifted in their home state.
Step 2 – Residential Life staff will review your request and
confirm the date and time for your arrival and that you are not a health
risk. It is imperative that you arrive on the date and time for which you
have been approved. Only students with a confirmed move-out application
will be allowed to return to campus. This is necessary in order to adhere
to social distancing guidelines and minimize the risk to our community.
When your application is approved, you will also receive a parking pass which
must be printed and placed on your dashboard when you arrive to campus. Do not show up to campus without a pass or
you will not be allowed to enter.
Step 3 – Students who return to campus will only be allowed
to go directly to their own room, pack up and depart. Students will not be allowed to visit other
students who may be on campus, other rooms or other facilities on campus. There
will be no service of food on campus and you should be aware that all restaurants
in RI have been ordered by the Governor to stop serving. So we recommend you bring your own food if
you are traveling from a distance. All
items must be removed from your room, suite, or townhouse. All students
will participate in express check-out and will sign out via the door tag on
their room door.
Step 4 – Before leaving campus, you will need to return your
key in the envelope provided. Please deposit the envelope with your key
in the drop box at Entry Control as you leave campus.
Step 5- If you cannot return to campus to retrieve
your personal belongings
If you are abroad or for
whatever reason cannot return to campus now or before the end of the academic
year to retrieve your personal belongings you must advise Residential Life at email@example.com, who will make appropriate arrangements to pack up
your belongings and put them in storage until you can retrieve them.
We will have a supply of
boxes, tape, and trash bags available in each residential area as well as
laundry carts to assist with your move-out.
All students must complete
the move out no later than Saturday, May 16th at 3:00 p.m. If
you are unable to return to campus to move-out by this date, please contact the
Office of Residential Life at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-232-6140 for assistance and information regarding packing,
shipping, or storing your belongings.
We thank you for your
cooperation and understanding during this difficult time.
