Students who lived on campus during the 2019-20 school year now have to schedule their move-out dates a couple of months early.
An email sent on March 17 by Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz asked all students living on-campus to move out of their residence halls, unless granted an exception to stay. UNC residence halls and Granville Towers will be closed for the rest of the academic year due to the nationwide spread of COVID-19, he said in the email.
The closure of on-campus housing for the rest of the semester has left students scheduling their move-outs earlier than expected. For those who live far from the University or out of the state, this presents additional challenges.
Students currently living off campus should sign up for a two-hour appointment to move all belongings out of their residences, according to an email sent by Carolina Housing to residents last week. The appointments to move out will take place from March 22 to April 1 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Carolina Housing said in a follow-up email that students who are unable to retrieve their belongings during those dates or do not wish to return to campus before April 1 — or March 24, for Parker Hall — can send an email to either Carolina Housing or Granville Towers, depending on where they live.
