Eastern Michigan University to Offer Single Room Guarantee for Students Living On-Campus

by Katie Sloan

Ypsilanti, Mich. — In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Eastern Michigan University has announced that the university will be offering students enrolling and living in an on-campus residence hall a ‘single room’ guarantee for the fall semester. Under this plan, a single room without a roommate will be available to every student who wants one. Students who wish to live with a roommate will continue to have that option. “We have heard from many students and parents about this issue,” says James Smith, president of the university. “They question how students can practice safe physical distancing when they have a roommate in close proximity to them in a residence hall room. We understand a single room may not be for everyone, but we also know and have heard from many who desire such accommodations at this time. We are fortunate to have the flexibility to offer single rooms to everyone who requests one.”
