UNT Housing COVID-19 Info

UNT Housing is utilizing CDC guidance for Shared or Congregate Housing and direction from University administration to identify strategies to maintain operations as well as a healthy living and working environment.  We hope our residents will join us in making COVID-19 mitigation a priority. 

Student well-being and success remain our highest priority.  As we all have a responsibility to help slow the spread of COVID-19 for ourselves and for each other, please utilize the CDC's best-practice strategies to protect yourself:

UNT's COVID symptoms and monitoring information provides a scenario guide for student use as well as guidance for persons self-monitoring for COVID-19.

On-campus housing for the 2021/2022 academic year

UNT Housing and Residence Life is excited to deliver the full experience of on-campus living for the 2021/2022 academic year while adhering to the latest advice from public health experts and campus guidelines. 

Housing plans to fully occupy all buildings and room-types to their regular capacity.  Residents will have full access to shared locations including suite bathrooms, community bathrooms and common living space within their room and the residence hall community. 

The University encourages all UNT community members to determine their own personal safety with regard to COVID-19, including continuing to wear masks, practice social distancing, etc.  Residents are permitted to make use of personal protective measures, as long as those decisions are not imposed on others. 

Residents are asked to report a positive COVID test result, symptoms, possible exposure or ask COVID-19 related questions to COVID@unt.edu.   

The Department of Housing and Residence Life will continue to serve our mission to provide high-quality service and transformative experiences that further the vision of the University of North Texas.


Quarantine Information for Residents Following International Travel

In addition to current CDC requirements regarding air travelers, UNT requires students who have not been vaccinated to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival from any international location before accessing the UNT campus.  This requirement is applicable to residents that have an on-campus room assignment, including arriving International Students and domestic residents who traveled abroad, prior to checking in to their residence hall for Fall 2021.  

Housing is not able to provide a room accommodation for residents to complete the quarantine requirement. 

Additional information regarding travel is available through the UNT Health Alerts site and questions can be directed to COVID@unt.edu
