As you prepare to return to campus, we encourage you to only bring what you need. In addition, make sure you have somewhere to store your things or a place to go in case we need to transition to wholly online learning and close the residential halls.

We will soon be publishing additional information related to enhancements within the residence halls and large gathering spaces as it relates to air quality.

Here are a few COVID-19 related items we suggest you bring:

  • Two masks (in addition to the two you will receive from the university)
  • Liquid hand soap
  • Personal hand sanitizer
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Thermometer
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Tissues
  • Designated container for storing your mask when you’re not using it (e.g. small plastic or paper sandwich bag)

For first-year students, the Welcome Weekend schedule will be available starting next week, and additional information will be available on the website and in this newsletter.

The move-in schedule, along with assigned dates and times to move into the residence halls, will be sent to all residential students this week. Please make sure you are checking your Saint Mary’s email and look for an email from
