2020-2021 Housing and Dining Agreements

2020-2021 Housing Agreement

COVID-19 Terms

Wake Forest University aims to provide a residential liberal arts education while protecting the health and safety of students and employees residing and working in residential facilities and also minimizing the transmission of COVID-19 within the Wake Forest community.  As a student who will be residing in University housing during the 2020-2021 academic year, COVID-19 will impact your housing experience as the University continues to make public-health informed decisions and changes to University operations.  The COVID-19 rules and responsibilities set forth below are incorporated into the Housing Agreement and are applicable to all students residing in University housing.  Questions about this information should be directed to the Office of Residence Life and Housing (RL&H).

  1. Health and Safety. Wake Forest expects that all students residing in University housing act in a manner that demonstrates respect and consideration for those around them, including respect and consideration for the health and safety of all community members. All residential students are prohibited from creating a health or safety hazard within University housing.  Wake Forest may request or require a resident to leave University housing if their continued presence in the residential facilities poses a health or safety risk for community members. Residential students are required to comply with health and safety laws, orders, regulations and health and safety guidance adopted by the University as they relate to public health crises, including COVID-19. Adherence to health and safety requirements applies to all residents, staff and visitors and extends to all aspects of residential life, including bedrooms, bathrooms, community kitchens, lounges, and other common spaces. These requirements may evolve as the public health crisis evolves.  Currently, students are required to:
    1. abide by social distancing requirements;
    2. comply with limitations on mass gatherings;
    3. wear a face covering outside of a student’s own room and when in the presence of others, particularly when a distance of six feet cannot be maintained;
    4. comply with self-screening symptom monitoring requirements set by the University;
    5. cooperate with contact tracing requests;
    6. comply with cleaning and disinfection protocols;
    7. comply with prohibitions and limitations on guests in residence halls; and abide by quarantine / isolation requirements.
  2. Quarantine / Isolation / Separation. At any time, the University may request or require a resident to leave University housing when that resident’s continued presence in the housing community poses a health or safety risk for community members as determined by the University. Residential students are required to comply with requests from the University to leave their assigned room due to COVID-19 or other public health emergency, and failure to do so will be considered a violation of the Housing Agreement and may subject a student to administrative removal from their assigned room.  Not all residential rooms, halls or housing are appropriate for quarantine or isolation, and in those situations where a student is recommended or required to quarantine or isolate, students may not be permitted to continue residing in their assigned room and will be provided alternative housing arrangements as needed. Removal from University housing to isolate or quarantine does not constitute failure to perform by the University or a termination of a student’s Housing Agreement.
  3. De-Densifying Efforts.  Residential students are required to comply with any de-densifying efforts needed on campus due to COVID-19 or other public health emergency.  These efforts may include, but are not limited to, relocating residential students to alternative housing. Relocation does not constitute failure to perform by the University or a termination of the student’s Housing Agreement. In the event the University must relocate or remove students as part of a de-densifying strategy due to public health concerns for an extended period of time and alternative housing is not available, Wake Forest will provide impacted students a partial reimbursement of housing charges in accordance with the University Disruption Refund Policy.
  4. Cleaning. The University will modify its cleaning protocols to address COVID-19 or other public health emergencies in an effort to minimize the spread of disease. Residence Life and Housing will educate and inform residential students on appropriate cleaning protocols (both those conducted by or on behalf of the University and those to be performed by students themselves) within their assigned rooms and spaces to reduce the spread of COVID-19 within University housing.
  5. Termination. ​The University reserves the right to terminate Housing Agreements for public health reasons, including to contain the transmission of COVID-19. In the event Housing Agreements are terminated for public health reasons, Wake Forest will provide impacted students a partial reimbursement of housing charges in accordance with the University Disruption Refund Policy.

In the event of a conflict between these COVID-19 Rules and Regulations and other terms and conditions of the Housing and Dining Agreement, the COVID-19 Rules and Regulations will apply.

This Housing Agreement (“Agreement”) is made and entered into by and between Wake Forest University (“University”) and the undersigned student (the “Student”) (together, the “Parties”). The University and the Student mutually agree as follows:

To return early, the Student must first contact and receive permission from RL&H.

Addendum: Minor Residents in University Housing

(Minors are defined as students under the age of 17)

The purpose of this Addendum is to make certain that all minor students and their parent/guardian have a clear understanding of the implications of having a minor live in University housing. It is important that all involved parties have a shared understanding of how the University views the presence of minors in the residence halls, and how the staff will approach certain issues, should they arise, in this adult environment. As such, this document must be signed and received by RL&H before the minor will be allowed to move on campus.

First, it is our expectation that both the minor and their parent or guardian understand that the minor will be living in an environment that is designed for adult students. University staff, therefore, will not be assuming the role of substitute parents to minors, nor will they monitor minors’ behavior or view their choices differently than they would those of residents aged 17 and older.

Secondly, it is our expectation that the minor and their parent or guardian have had a discussion of the realities and potential risks of living away from home in an adult environment, and that they have determined that the minor has the maturity to live and function in this setting. We also expect that the minor is empowered and capable of making day-to-day academic and life-style decisions and choices on their own. This is extremely important, as the minor will be held accountable for their actions. Both the parents or guardians and minor understand that the minor will be subject to and expected to comply with the same University policies as residents who are 17 and older.
