COVID-19 Response


No. this is not a sufficient request. The academic deans are working to resolve how to provide resources and work on academics remotely.

To be let out of this contract/agreement, your co-op or internship must provide documentation that they are letting you work remotely. 

Please review with your supervisor if you are required to stay on campus and report to work.  Students that are required to stay on campus for University positions will be permitted to remain in housing.

We understand that some students have employment with companies and organizations not related to the University of Dayton.  Unfortunately, at this time we are required to increase social distance and students working at off-campus jobs are not permitted to stay in University housing during this period when we have transitioned to online learning.

At this time, the information provided to the University of Dayton by the Ohio Department of Health and Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County has instructed us that increasing social distance (not spending time with large groups of people) is the best way to contain the spread of the virus and limit the possible impact. Large residential campuses make that difficult, whereas being home with a limited number of people makes social distancing more possible.   When you return to your permanent residence, we recommend that you follow the instructions provided in the January 26, 2020 email from the Medical Director at the University of Dayton and the recommendations from the CDC in preventing the spread of the virus among your family and friends.

Typically, vehicles can be parked on the streets in the student neighborhood in legal parking areas. Vehicles would be parked at the driver's own risk.  Yes, we can accommodate student vehicles in a campus lot during the class suspension period.  Students must obtain a temporary permit to be displayed on their vehicles.  We will require students to provide name, phone number, and vehicle information (make, color & license plate number) when they request their permit.  Vehicles will be parked at the drivers own risk.  Permits will be available at the Parking Services office, Fitz Hall, RM 191, and at either visitor center.

No mail delivery will be happening effective March 11.  Packages are being kept at Central Receiving in Fitz Hall.  As long as the entire university is not shut down, students may pick up packages there from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  No mail or packages will be forwarded.

No. The university will be restricting door access in spaces with exterior doors and will be changing the key cores for spaces that are not occupied during this period.  Be sure to take all the items that you will need until in-person classroom learning returns.

While the University is suspending all in-person classes, most of our grad and law students consider their permanent housing to be their University housing.  As such, all grad and law students are permitted to remain in University housing during this period.
