Help Out Dining & Culinary Services

Due to staffing shortages and supply chain issues in the United Sates, we made changes to dining, effective September 10, 2021, to continue providing the best service and high-quality offerings to residents and customers. We need help from Housing staff to pick up shifts in dining units during peak meal operation times at Four Lakes and Gordon Avenue markets. This has been successful in the past and is a great opportunity to help the greater Division of Housing, learn a bit more about Dining & Culinary Services, and earn some extra money at the same time.

Isolation & Quarantine for Housing Residents

To provide for the residence hall community, Housing has determined designated areas on campus and around Madison to be quarantine and isolation spaces for residence hall students affected by COVID-19. Residents who have been contacted by a contact tracer about medium or high-risk exposure to COVID-19 will need to move to quarantine housing and remain there for a minimum of 10 days. Residents who have tested positive for COVID-19 are instructed to move to isolation housing for a minimum of 10 days.
