UNC's residence halls will be closed to all residents for the rest of the academic year with few exceptions, according to a campus-wide email sent from Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz on Tuesday.
Students currently on campus should begin moving out no later than Saturday at 5 p.m., the message said.
UNC Libraries, Campus Recreation, Student Stores and classroom buildings will all be closed, according to the email.
Campus Dining Services will be reduced to takeout and will only be offered to residents granted "special circumstances waivers," the email said. For students to remain on campus, the email said they must apply for a waiver by Wednesday, March 18 at 5 p.m.
"Waivers will only be granted to those residents who complete an appropriate health screening and clearly establish that no other practical alternative is available," Guskiewicz said in the email.
