College Residential Facilities to Close

March 23, 2020, 2:30 p.m.

Based on today's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order from Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (which at this time runs through April 13, 2020), all College residential facilities will be closing at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24. While online instruction will continue, students must leave their residential spaces by no later than that time.

Students should take all personal belongings with them if possible. If you are unable to take all personal belongings, you may leave them in your assigned residential space. Students will not be permitted to return to campus while the Governor’s order remains in effect, including students who have already left campus. The process for retrieving personal belongings will be communicated by Residential Life at a later date.

While we understand the desire to help a fellow Brit, we cannot stress enough the importance of practicing appropriate social distancing during the move-out process.

Limited exceptions may be granted for students with extraordinary need. Students should explore all options for leaving campus before requesting an exception.

Students granted an exception may be required to move to a different space on campus and should expect limited food service as well as other campus resources. Students who need to request an exception should email the Student Development Office () by 7:00 p.m. tonight to concisely explain their reasons for needing to remain on campus.

Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and very few exceptions will be granted.

Please travel safely and be healthy and well. Know that we will look forward to seeing you again soon.
