In-person instruction will end on November 20 and many residential buildings operated by RPS will be closed until the second semester begins in February. During this time period, the university is seeking for to reduce the population on campus for health and safety reasons. A severe winter flu season is anticipated. This break will also give us an opportunity to thoroughly clean the buildings before February.
We recognize it will not be possible for some students to leave campus. We will accept petitions to remain on campus through September 24.
