RHS COVID-19 Response


The latest issue of Serving State is now available. 2020 was a year no one anticipated, and the division came together in ways it never has before. In this special issue, read about just exactly how each RHS unit has responded to the myriad changes throughout the pandemic and why it's a true honor to be a part of Team RHS.

Mitigating the Spread

In alignment with public health recommendations, the Michigan State University Division of Residential and Hospitality Services (RHS) is taking measures to prevent community spread of COVID-19, which includes enhanced disinfecting and sanitizing procedures. These new procedures ensure the health and safety of our team members and residents by reducing the potential for COVID-19 spread. It is the division’s top priority to ensure facilities are clean, safe and provide a healthy environment. Read more here.

Spring 2021 Move-In
Both students new for spring and current residents returning from winter break need to schedule their spring arrival. This will allow for easier physical distancing and reduce possible congestion in the halls. To learn more and to schedule your arrival, visit our move-In 2021 page here.

Spring residents are required to participate in the COVID-19 Early Detection program. Please complete the consent form by Jan. 11 (whether you participated in fall or not). You will use this same link to confirm your flu vaccination status.

Currently students who need to isolate or quarantine will either remain in their private rooms or utilize the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center, if they do not choose to return to their permanent residence. Learn more here.
