UConn announced Tuesday that all out-of-state students who are enrolled in online courses will not be allowed to live on campus during the upcoming fall 2020 semester to further add to the university's COVID-19 safety protocols.
The university wrote in a press release that, "We have come to the difficult conclusion that we need to further de-densify our campus residential spaces. This is to both reduce the risk of illness and enable greater quarantine capability in the event it is needed, and we believe it gives us a design which, with everyone’s cooperation, allows UConn to not only open successfully but complete the semester as planned."
 
UConn says students will be notified personally if they are not allowed to come back and live on campus.
