Most MSU students instructed to move out by March 30

Andrea Johnson/MDN Most MSU students have been ordered to move out of the residence halls on campus by next Monday. The university will “work with” students who have no other place to stay and will allow those students to remain in the residence halls. Cook Hall and Dakota Hall are pictured on Tuesday afternoon.

Minot State University has sent a letter to students indicating that residence halls and campus dining services will be closed as of noon on March 30. Students who are unable to move out of the dorms by that date were instructed to email MSU housing by Tuesday of this week to create a plan.

“We will remain open to only those students who have no alternative housing available to them,” according to the letter sent by director of residence life Karina Stander.

Students will receive pro-rated adjustments to their university bill for housing and dining charges.

Meal plans for students who are currently staying in the residence halls or have been approved to remain in the residence halls will continue to be available after March 30, according to the letter.

Students moving out of the dorms were instructed not to come to check out of their rooms if they are sick and to bring the fewest number of people possible along to help them move.

Students who have questions or concerns were instructed to email msu.housing@minotstateu.edu

MSU has also ended face-to-face classes for the remainder of the spring semester and has moved to online delivery due to the threat of the new coronavirus.
