Fall 2020 in the Division of Student Affairs


The fall 2020 semester at IUPUI will look different than any semester in the university’s history as the COVID-19 pandemic is still very present around the world. Since students were last on campus, IUPUI has made several safety enhancements across the board as it prepares to reopen.

The Division of Student Affairs has worked to alter procedures, guidelines, and day-to-day operations to ensure students have the support and access they need while upholding best practices to keep everyone healthy and safe. Below is a breakdown of each unit in the division with helpful information and links that highlight their fall plans and operations.

To limit the possible spread of the virus, Housing and Residence Life has announced:

  • all rooms in IUPUI's residence halls will be single occupancy, unless two students choose each other as roommates.
  • students may have two guests help them on move in day.
  • no guests will be allowed in the residence halls for the remainder of the academic year or until it is deemed safe for outside guests to visit housing.
  • everyone must wear a mask while occupying shared spaces in the residence halls. Students will not be required to wear masks in their room if they live alone or if roommates agree not to do so.
  • IUPUI has restructured its housekeeping and maintenance team schedules to increase the frequency of cleanings with disinfectants in the residence halls' bathrooms and public areas.
