Vaccination requirement: Students who will be living in any University housing facility, including Nexus, must be fully compliant with the University vaccination policy.

https://sites.rowan.edu/wellness/vaccineincentive/index.html

  • On May 6, Rowan University announced it will require—and provide an incentive—for all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students must submit their vaccination record by August 7, 2021.
  • Full-time students who show proof of vaccination by August 7 will receive a $500 credit to their fall 2021 course registration bill. Residential students will receive an additional $500 credit to their housing bill. Part-time students will receive a prorated credit based on the number of courses/credits taken in the fall.
  • You may opt out of the vaccination requirement for medical or religious reasons. You may also opt out for personal reasons while the COVID-19 vaccine is under an emergency use authorization. To opt out, you will be required to complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Declination Form

Policies for Unvaccinated Residents

  • Prior to moving in, if you are unvaccinated, you will be required to complete a pre-move-in COVID-19 test.
  • Testing will be completed by Wellness Center or Gloucester County Public Health personnel at the South Jersey Technology Park on the West Campus. On your assigned move-in day, if you are subject to this requirement, you should first report directly to the Tech Park prior to proceeding to campus to move in.
  • If you test positive, staff will provide further instructions and options. You may complete a period of isolation at home, or on-campus at the Triad Apartments. You will not be permitted to move your belongings into your fall housing assignment at that time.
  • If you have been vaccinated, but did not submit your records prior to the deadline, you should also report to the Tech Park first to provide your vaccination records and receive clearance to proceed with the move-in process.
  • Unvaccinated individuals (residents and helpers) must wear a mask covering the nose and mouth inside any on-campus academic or administrative building, and in common areas inside housing buildings (such as hallways, lobbies, etc.).
  • If you are unvaccinated, you may also be subject to enhanced safety requirements throughout the academic year, including regular surveillance testing and quarantine or isolation procedures if exposed to an individual who has tested positive.

Move-In Appointment Times

You must schedule a move-in appointment time. This will be the time that you should plan to arrive to begin your move-in process.  (Nexus is a separate process). To schedule a move-in appointment time:

  • Log into MyHousing https://go.rowan.edu/myhousing/
  • Scroll down to the “Assignments” section
  • Click the “Fall 2021” tab (if applicable)
  • Under the “Move In Fall 2021” option, click the drop down and select your time block.
  • Click the “Update My Time” button to secure that time slot.

Things to keep in mind:

  • The deadline to select your arrival appointment time is August 18th.
  • You can select or change your appointment time until August 18th.
  • If you do not select an appointment time, one will be chosen for you.
  • All appointment times are on a first come, first serve basis
  • The day/time slots available for you are the time slots that you see in the drop-down options. 
  • If you want, you can change your selected time slot by going back

to the drop down, selecting a new time slot, and clicking the “update my time” button again. Once you do this, your old time slot selection is made available for other students to select.

General Move-In Process Details:

  • When you arrive at your unloading zone to move-in, you will be asked to unload your vehicle as quickly as possible and move it to long-term parking lots to allow others to access the unloading zone. 
  • A limited number of move-in volunteers may be available to assist students bringing their belongings up to their room/apartment. If you would prefer not to have a move-in volunteer assist you for any reason, simply communicate that and they can move on to the next vehicle. 
  •  When you arrive, staff will verify your eligibility to proceed with moving in. If you have not submitted your vaccination records, or you are unvaccinated and have not completed a COVID-19 test at the Tech Park, staff will direct you to go there prior to unloading. 
  • Only one vehicle will be permitted to enter the unloading zone. If helpers come to campus with you, they will need to park additional vehicles in an alternate long-term parking location. 
  • Some push carts will be available at the buildings to assist, but if you have moving tools such as a dolly or a hand truck, they would be helpful to make moving in as efficient as possible.
  • Appointment times are designed to allow a specific number of students to move through the process without too much volume and congestion. Arriving during your appointment time, emptying your vehicle as quickly as possible, and moving it to a long-term parking area will allow for the residents in the next appointment time to safely arrive and park.
  • Expect the campus to be very busy. We have over 5,000 students moving in this year. We will do our best to manage traffic, parking and lines, but appreciate your patience during the move-in day process. 
  • Weather on move-in day is typically hot and may be humid. Wear light clothing, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and wear sunscreen. 
  • Think carefully about what you bring... What do you really need? Consider whether you can lighten the load on move-in day, and bring some items on a future trip. Before you pack, please review information about what to bring and what is prohibited on campus on our website here.
  • It is helpful to have at least one other person with you, preferably a driver so they can park your vehicle while you manage your belongings. 
  • Except for Holly Pointe Commons and some apartment buildings, most buildings are not equipped with elevators or air conditioning, so pace yourself as you work.
