  • Information Regarding Spring 2020 Check Out

    We have established a detailed plan for Spring 2020 checkout based on three priorities:

    1. Maintain the health of our students, guests, and staff by adhering to guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) regarding social distancing and large group gatherings.

    2. Provide you with recommendations for ways in which you can be prepared prior to your arrival on campus for Spring 2020 checkout.

    3. Make the checkout process as easy as possible given the current circumstances.

    Checkout Procedures

    You will need to schedule your checkout date and time. Appointments are available in two-hour increments from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. CDT from Monday, May 11 through Sunday, May 31. A limited number of students will be able to select each appointment time in keeping with CDC guidelines of limiting the number of people in a single area at one time. 

    You will be permitted to enter the residence hall only during your confirmed appointment time. Only you and two additional guests will be permitted on campus. Overnight stays are not permitted.

    We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work together through this unprecedented event. The University of Mississippi’s highest priority is the health and safety of our students and campus community and, for this reason, a great deal of time and consideration has gone into the planning for Spring 2020 checkout. Our hope is to make this process is smooth and safe for everyone.
