Dear Residents,

Colorado Mesa University wants to thank you for working together to help all of campus stay healthy and safe! You have done an amazing job following the guidelines set forth at the beginning of the year. As a result of your good choices, Residence Life is going to relax the Residence Hall Visitor Policy beginning March 2. Residence Life will loosen the protocols to allow more freedom as long as the COVID cases continue to trend low and students abide by the guidelines outlined below:

  • ONLY TWO guests are allowed per resident with a limit of EIGHT in any one suite.
  • Guests must be on-campus residents and
    • Sign in with the Desk Attendant or complete the form BEFORE EACH VISIT
    • Show their MavCard with Res Life sticker
    • Show a green screen
    • Wear mask in hallways and common spaces
    • Be respectful of others and follow Residence Life policies
    • Do not have to be a part of your Mavily
  • Masks should always be worn in hallways and common spaces, but may be removed once inside the suite, apartment, or room.

Failure to follow these expectations puts others at risk and can jeopardize this newer freedom for all. Individual consequences can result in fines, additional COVID testing, parent contact, and resident hall probation.

As the weather continues to get warmer, we hope you will utilize the outdoor spaces as much as possible, but in the meantime, enjoy each other’s company inside.

If COVID cases start to rise, CMU Safety will have to revisit this policy again. However, by continuing to make good choices and behave responsibility, i.e. masking, social distancing, having guests over that you know are COVID-free, we can start to resume some normalcy in our daily lives. If you begin to have any symptoms, please quarantine yourself and get tested. Your responsible behaviors have helped us to get this far. Let’s finish the year strong!
