Meaningful & memorable

Any student who visits our campus will share in responsibility for the health of our whole campus, including students, faculty, staff, visitors, and our surrounding community. Outlined below are some of the ways we’ve worked to ensure as safe of an environment as possible for our CSU Family. For full guidelines, click here.


The number of students in a dorm room is limited to two to minimize risk among students who live together. We also have rooms set aside for isolation in the event that a student becomes sick with COVID-19.

All residential students are required to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test (or proof of a positive test within 90 days prior to the start of the spring semester) prior to move-in. If you wish to obtain COVID-10 testing on your own, you must receive and obtain a negative test result within 72 hours of your scheduled check-in. Please follow the following steps:

  1. Once you have your results, take a photo or scan them into a PDF. 
  2. Upload to our HIPAA compliant online platform.
  3. Also bring a copy with you in case of technical difficulties.

CSU is providing rapid testing to all residential students before check-in. If you do not have proof of a negative COVID test, you will be tested upon entrance to campus for move-in. Students completing a rapid test will show test results to the University COVID-19 Coordinator at a designated location in the Health Science Building parking lot prior to be allowed access to residence halls. Students will receive a wrist band upon completion that notifies team members of entrance approval.

The rapid test takes 15-30 minutes from administration to result receipt. Once a student receives a negative result, they will be permitted to proceed. If a student receives a positive, they will check in to an isolation-designated room OR they can opt to return home to complete their isolation period.

If you have questions about COVID-19 testing or any other COVID-19 related questions, please email

Please note: if your test is positive, DO NOT come to campus. Isolate at home and e-mail their results to  the CSU COVID-19 Coordinator at and Residence Life at


Students will be encouraged to limit their time to less than 30 minutes in the Dining Hall to allow for the maximum number of students to utilize the space. Additional outdoor dining and seating options are available in the outdoor tent or various outdoor tables.

The new late night grill in the Student Center will be open in the spring (grand opening on Jan. 19), and Java City will reopen–though seating capacity will be limited.


Student life activities will be adjusted to minimize large gatherings on campus. The Sweet 16 calendar will be adjusted based on recommendations by the University Pandemic Task Force in response to the evolving situation in our community.

Campus Recreation has multiple safety measures in place for all patrons. Some areas of the facility have been temporarily closed and some equipment has been marked to help with physical distancing. All patrons are expected to follow sign guidelines and should practice excellent personal hygiene.

Prior to entering, patrons are greeted by a staff member to be pre-screened and have a temperature check. Please come dressed for your activity and keep minimal belongings as locker room space will be limited. Patrons will be required to wear a face covering and follow all policies and procedures. Failure to comply will result in removal from the facility.
