Saint Mary’s University is beginning the process of inviting students back to campus to retrieve belongings from residence halls. In accordance with guidance from the state, the university has established a plan that meets the following parameters:

  • We are to limit the number of students in each building at one time to less than three. This will be a slow, carefully planned move, spread out between May 11-31. Roommates will not be permitted to move out at the same time. Each student will be allowed to bring one person, over the age of 16, to assist with moving.
  • We are to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
  • We are to ensure the safety of all by wiping down public surfaces between slotted move-out times.

All students who have not returned their keys will receive an email from the Office of Student Life soon with a pre-scheduled move-out day and time. To stay on schedule, each student has approximately three hours to empty his or her room, so please plan accordingly. If you turned in your key but left personal items behind that you were planning to retrieve later, please contact the Office of Student Life at to discuss arrangements.

The schedule has two daily move-out slots: 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. These will run Monday through Friday, from May 11-31. If your assigned move-out day or time will absolutely not work, please contact the Office of Student Life at to discuss other arrangements.

Due to the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus and our desire to protect our local community, please be advised that students returning to campus without permission will not be allowed to access residence halls.

Any non-forwardable packages the Saint Mary’s mailroom has received will be placed in students’ residence hall rooms.

If you have other personal belongings to retrieve (from locker rooms, the art studio, or other locations), please contact Student Life at to make arrangements.
