Oklahoma State University is looking to limit COVID-19 as much as possible.

With the commitment to have in-person class fully in place, the university announced Wednesday that it will require students living on campus to complete a COVID-19 test before checking in to their housing.

In addition to this, OSU is also setting up a staggered move-in schedule for campus residents. Residents will be assigned a specific date and time for their move-in and there will be no more than 850 people moving in on any given day in the 31 residence halls. No more than two people are allowed to assist during move-in.

In accordance with the rules on campus this fall, OSU is also requiring students and staff to wear a mask any time they are in a public area or outside of their assigned living unit. Residents will receive a mask when they check into their residence hall.

While the test results will be available as soon as possible, students awaiting results are asked to limit interactions with others and isolate in their assigned housing.

About 300 bed spaces will be available for quarantine. These will be assigned as needed as space is available.
