SVSU pushes changes to housing, dining services

Housing

All shared bedrooms in the Living Centers and Pine Grove have been converted to singles. The furniture for shared bedrooms will have to remain in the rooms because there is nowhere to store it.

Housing check-in will run Aug. 24-29. Residents can bring up to two guests to help them move in. There will be no volunteers to help residents move in.

Prior to move-in, residents must complete a plan stating where they will quarantine if directed to do so. They should also have a go bag packed in case they need to move out quickly.

Students who choose not to return to campus after Thanksgiving will receive financial relief for vacating.

Dining

All self-serve areas the Marketplace have been changed to full service. Salt, pepper and salad dressings are now available in single use portions.

Students must wear a face covering while in the Marketplace unless they are seated at their own table.

Cards will be placed on tables to signify that the table has been sanitized and is available for use.

Graphics and line queueing will be placed throughout the Marketplace to maintain social distancing.

Grubhub can be used to order food from other dining locations on campus.

Student Life

The RSO fair will be held over the course of a week, starting Sept. 14. Some RSOs will be meeting virtually throughout the fall semester. Depending on the size, some RSOs will be able to meet in-person.

Valley Nights will hold its movie events outdoors. As it gets colder, movies may change to a drive-in style.

Program Board will be providing craft kits for students to pick up and do at home.

Some club sports might not be able to occur in the fall semester, but some, such as golf, may be able to take place.

Career Services

Career Services will be holding four of its fall employment fairs on its new platform, Handshake. On-campus jobs and other networking opportunities can be found on the Handshake platform as well.
