Masking is not required in your room or apartment. Masking is required in public areas unless:
- You are fully vaccinated and verified by Sindecuse Health Center as indicated on your badge.
- You have a medical exemption to not wear a mask.
Guests are required to wear masks inside all residence halls and apartment public areas unless they are fully vaccinated.
Housing's guest policy is returning to its pre-pandemic status. Students may have up to two guests who are at least 18-years-old. Guests are permitted to stay overnight with prior consent of all roommates and suitemates, if applicable. Guests are only permitted to stay for a maximum of two consecutive nights. Hosts are responsible for all guest behavior. Off-campus guests and non-vaccinated WMU students must wear a mask while indoors.
Students must show their health badge when asked by University faculty and staff, including Housing staff. Students should be prepared to show badging if asked by housing staff. For more about WMU’s health survey and badging, click here.
Occupancy limits for lounges are posted so physical distancing can be maintained. Furniture in lounges will match the maximum number of occupants. Should health concerns change in Kalamazoo County, lounges will be closed and students notified.
