Video: What to Expect in Residence Life
Hi, I’m Julianne Crayton. I’m the Assistant Director of Operations in Residence Life. Our staff has been preparing procedures and our buildings for your arrival in the fall. We have implemented new processes to make it a safe place for you to live.
We have stretched out our move-in process to multiple days to create time slots so that fewer people will be on campus at a time. It is important that you complete your pre-check-in process prior to arrival so that you can complete your check-in on time. You also need to have your ID card for check-in, so if you have not already picked it up please do so prior to arrival.
There are other things that you’ll want to be aware of. Everyone will need to be in face coverings during the move-in process. This is for the safety of everyone involved, both staff and yourself. Please have those with you when you arrive.
Something that will also be new as part of our check-in process is a temperature screening while you are waiting in line for your check-in. A staff member will come through the line to make sure that you have completed your online health assessment and also to screen your temperature.
Once you have settled into campus there are also some things that we have implemented to keep you safe throughout your semester with us. There have been capacities assigned to each common area within the buildings. This will include the kitchen, lounges and any other common area that you enter such as a laundry room. The elevators will also have capacities. These are to limit your exposure to others and also so that you can maintain social distance in these locations. Once again masks will need to be worn for the protection of everyone in these areas.
There have also been changes made to our visitor policy. Visitors will only be allowed during the day so there will not be an opportunity for overnight guests. There’s also a limit to how many guests can be in each space and more information will be provided on this to you.
When you enter the buildings, you will also notice that we have installed hand sanitizing stations, one per building. This is for your convenience and can be used whenever you would like. Our staff is also implementing enhanced cleaning procedures so that you can feel safe while you are out and about in your buildings. Our community center which houses our front desk will still remain open 24 hours, seven days a week.
We will also still continue to offer a robust array of activities and engagements so that you can continue to make lifelong friendships and connections while here at UW-Green Bay.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
