Attention campus housing residents: Students who live on campus are asked to depart campus on Friday, March 13. This decision is being made out of an abundance of caution, because your safety is our primary concern.

All students with a room assignment in campus housing must complete our Resident Status form by noon Friday, March 13.

Note that to complete the form, you must sign in to the housing portal (StarRez). Simply sign in and find the Resident Status form at the top of the page.

If students have trouble finding the Resident Status form, view the guide below for instructions.

A few of our residents will need to remain in the residence halls. Students are allowed to remain in the residence halls if:

  • They are required to stay for work or clinical responsibilities
  • If the residence hall is your home and you do not have another place to go
  • Other extenuating circumstances

In order to remain in housing during this time, you must complete our Resident Status form by noon Friday, March 13.

University Housing will follow up with a needs assessment by email for students who remain. Please complete the needs assessment as soon as you receive it.

At this time, students are not being asked to move out of their residence halls completely, but it is important that you pack all essential items like medication, electronics and other personal valuables you will need until you return March 29.

For security reasons, only those students who indicate they must stay will have access to enter the residence halls until the halls re-open.

Continue to check your Augusta University email for updates from university officials and academic departments. If you have questions about the form, email university housing or call 706-729-2300.
