Residence Life & Housing
Students living on-campus must commit to high standards of personal behavior and hygiene to protect themselves and the other members of their living community. Different measures will be required in various campus residential areas, depending on the configuration of the traditional residence halls and apartments.
Health & Safety Checks
Professional and student staff will establish and communicate procedures for maintaining contact with residents through physical distanced, virtual or electronic means. The schedule of room inspections will be modified, with more open and regular conversation occurring regarding shared responsibility of residents for adhering to approved guidelines.
Following shared responsibility expectations, common spaces will be altered, and residents will be expected to follow approved guidelines for cleaning, wearing of masks, refraining from large events, etc.
Facilities & Cleaning
Facilities and cleaning planning will be altered to lower risk of exposure and promote the health and safety of all residents.
Isolation & Quarantine Planning
Immaculata is developing a comprehensive plan to isolate or quarantine residents who become ill with COVID-19 and are unable to travel home. This will include procedures for health checks, emotional support, meal delivery and other support services.
Move-in operations will be phased over multiple days or weeks in August with additional safety measures in place including:
- Move-in assistance will be limited to one person for each student.
- Decreased numbers of additional volunteer support.
- Cleaning, disinfecting, sanitizing protocols.
- Programming and amenity limitations.
- Health and safety information and protocols including dining.
- Minimizing gatherings in common areas.
Immaculata Dining Services is looking forward to welcoming you back into our dining facilities in the coming months. We are committed to the health and safety of our guests and are working hard to ensure you the same excellent service you have come to expect in a more controlled manner.
Our dining team will be undergoing extensive training upon return to campus, including new cleaning schedules of all high-touch points utilizing an approved antimicrobial disinfectant. Team members will still be smiling but behind a mask and Plexiglas barrier.
Hours of Operation
Hours of all dining locations remain unchanged from the previous year. Menus may be slightly adjusted and customization limited initially to allow for speed of service and everyone on campus to become comfortable with our new safety measures.
Social Distancing: Social distancing signage and directional signage will be throughout all dining facilities, we ask you maintain a social distance of 6 feet apart at all times and follow our in and out directional arrows to aid with flow of guest traffic. To ensure social distancing, seating space will be limited in Nazareth Dining Hall. To accommodate all our student diners, we are asking for faculty and staff to take their meals to go during the coming months. Guests will have the ability to swipe their own meal card or credit card at all registers, to limit physical interactions we would like to ask if at all possible to limit cash transactions.
Nazareth Dining Hall
At Nazareth Dining Hall, guest favorites such as cheeseburgers and fries, cheesesteaks, deli favorites, pizza and soup will all still be available daily however all stations will now be served by a dining services team member. Breakfast will still offer popular breakfast sandwiches and a full hot breakfast with traditional cold items. Salad bar will move to the current deli station and pre made, pre-packaged deli sandwiches will be available in the existing salad bar space at lunch. Dinner will offer a wide variety of freshly made and packaged salads and deli sandwiches at the current salad bar so we may continue to offer our popular made to order Bravo Station to our guests. Gluten Free, vegetarian, vegan and other dietary accommodations will continue to be built into our menus or be available upon request with one of our team members. The grill station will initially have limited customization to ensure we are able to continue offering everyone’s favorite options. At peak dining periods your meal will be ready made and plated hot for you. Pepperazzi, Spoon and Fork and Bravo will have the same variety and quality you have come to love at Nazareth. Ice cream will be available and scooped by a dining services team member.
We understand guests may want to limit their time in our dining facilities and we will have grab and go meals available for the community at Nazareth Dining Hall. Breakfast will be available to grab at dinner the previous evening and lunch/dinner replacements will be available throughout the day starting at breakfast.
