UNF Housing requires future residents to be tested on move-in week

Darvin Nelson, News Editor

To help slow the spread of COVID-19, UNF housing will require all residents planning to live on-campus for the spring 2020 semester to be tested for coronavirus during the week of Jan. 4, 2020. 

“All residents will take the UNF administered test regardless of receiving a prior test result at a non-UNF testing facility and/or whether they were previously COVID-19 positive,” the UNF update read.

The residents must take a UNF administered test, regardless of getting a prior test result at a non-UNF facility. Students must have a negative test via UNF testing in order to gain key access to their housing assignment.

This process will include all residents assigned in the following areas:

  • Osprey Villages
  • Osprey Fountains
  • The Flats at UNF
  • Osprey Hall
  • Osprey Landing
  • Osprey Cove
  • Osprey Crossings

Residents will be emailed steps to pre-schedule a testing appointment. Testing dates and times are available on a first-come, first-reserve basis. If you arrive on campus without pre-scheduling an appointment, UNF says that you will be turned away. Testing will take place at the UNF Field House (Building 26).
