Living On Campus
The residence halls will be open during the fall semester for our San Antonio students with some significant adjustments. To accommodate the need for social distancing in the residence halls, OLLU is adopting the following initiatives:
Reopening Former Residence Hall Space
Following the opening of Lake View Hall, the university took several halls offline. Providence Hall, Pacelli Hall and St. Ann’s Hall on the San Antonio campus will be brought back online and utilized for greater social distancing. These halls are currently being updated for student use. This will greatly increase the availability of single rooms. Our spacious triple occupancy rooms will be converted to double occupancy rooms. There will be no more than two residents sharing bathroom space. Please visit the Residence Hall COVID-10 Response Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information.
Social distancing measures in common spaces
Lounges, study rooms and laundry spaces will be adjusted to ensure proper distancing; signage and floor decals will be added as visual reminders.
Intensified cleaning of high-touch areas
New procedures are being adopted for more frequent cleaning of high touch areas such as door handles, surfaces in common areas, hallways, elevator and stairwells.
Residence hall activities
Social activities in the residence halls will involve more virtual and outdoor activities to ensure social distancing.
Hand sanitizer stations
Hand sanitizer stations will be available near hall entrances.
