Lynn announces fall housing and residence life changes

The Housing and Residence Life team has been working on a number of important changes to support the health and welfare of our entire community, which include reducing population density in residence halls, changes to campus services and procedures for COVID-19 isolation.

According to Vice President for Student Affairs Anthony Altieri, the university is following guidance provided by government and health authorities to increase physical distancing in campus living environments. "The university will reduce the number of individuals living in our residence halls by eliminating triple bedroom options and assigning no more than two people per bedroom," he said.

Lynn will offer a combination of single bedrooms with community bathrooms, doubles with private and community bathrooms, and suite-style living units for students either on campus or at nearby hotels.

"Residence halls remain a great place to interact with your peers. However, things will look a little different as we implement safety measures in the fall," said Altieri. These include new guidelines about visitors, face masks, space capacity and dining services.

  • Only residential students, university staff and approved vendors may access the residence halls, and no visitors or overnight guests will be permitted.
  • Students will be expected to wear masks in lobbies, lounges and other public spaces on campus and in residence halls.
  • Some recreation areas, equipment and activities may be unavailable.
  • Capacity limitations will be in place for community lounges, elevators and laundry rooms.
  • Hours and occupancy of dining facilities will be limited.
