Apply for Housing
Welcome to Kean University and the Office of Residential Student Services. Thank you for your interest in living on campus during the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year. Housing Applications for the Spring 2021 semester are now available on KeanWise.
For the Spring 2021 semester, residents will be assigned to single occupancy bedrooms within a two-bedroom suite. This means that every resident will have their own bedroom, and share the suite with only one other student, who also will have their own bedroom. This change was made to limit the number of students sharing a living space together. In addition, residents will not incur an additional fee for living in a single occupancy bedroom, and will be charged the lower fee of a double occupancy room.
The common area of each residence hall is cleaned several times daily by our facilities and maintenance staff, with an additional deep cleaning occurring three times a week. Areas such as lounges, hallways, and the elevator are diligently cleaned and sanitized.
All residents, as well as residential staff, are required to take a COVID test every week. Free testing is provided on campus and conducted to ensure that everyone within our residential community is being tested and treated accordingly.
In addition, support, service, and advisement is provided for residents in the event of a positive test result. In coordination with Health Services, residents are given several quarantine and isolation options in the event of a positive result, including temporary relocation to a designated quarantine assignment, with meals delivered during this period. Quarantine students also have their previous rooms and suites thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before their return.
Hybrid residential programming takes place throughout the residential community. While there are physical events that take place in socially distanced locations, residents are also invited to attend many virtual programming events that result in unique ways to be socially interactive during the pandemic.
In addition, several on campus amenities have re-opened, such as our residential computer lab, the MSC Game Room, and the Fitness Center.
The world has changed due to the pandemic, and so have we. In uncertain and scary times, we understand that students want an environment that is both comforting and safe, and we are committed to continuing to foster a community that allows for students to get a worthwhile college experience.
