Frequently Asked Questions about Q and I Housing

Student Health

Will guests be allowed at Ashton or the Holiday Inn?

No, guests are not permitted.

Will the Student Health Center or IU Health be checking on them?

Each student will receive a welcome packet with resources that will help them complete quarantine or isolation successfully. It also provides resources from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), to help students manage the psychological and emotional effects of living in quarantine or isolation.

All students in quarantine and isolation will be instructed to download the IU Health Twistle app to their phone or device. Each day, the app will remind the student to check their temperature and monitor any symptoms. If a student’s symptoms worsen, Twistle will alert an IU Health nurse to call and check in with the student. At any time, the student may call the IU Student Health Center, Monday – Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. or the IU Virtual Health app (available in Google Play) at One.IU for assistance or questions.

What should I do if my roommate tests positive?

If one roommate tests positive through IU testing, the other will be contacted through Contact Tracing and given instructions on what they will need to do given their recent interactions with their roommate. If your roommate tests positive whether through IU testing or other testing, you should self-quarantine in your current space and contact the IU Health Virtual Screening Clinic as soon as possible. From there, you will be able to speak with a medical professional and put in touch with our Contact Tracing Team as needed.

Course Work

Will students they be expected to manage their classes online if they are in quarantine or isolation?

Students entering quarantine or isolation who have in-person classes should notify their instructors that they are not permitted to attend class. Instructors will work with students to ensure they are able to continue making progress on their class. Students will be expected to continue completing classwork as usual for their online classes.

If they are too sick to attend remote classes, is there someone to help them inform their instructors?

If a student is too ill to keep up with classwork or attend classes remotely, they should contact the Student Advocates Office, which will assist the student in contacting instructors and making arrangements for the student to make up any work they miss.
