Residential Life preparing for fall 2020 move-in

Published June 20, 2020

Congratulations on becoming a member of the Residential Life community at ULM!  The staff in Residential Life are busy planning for fall move-in and we will provide you additional move-in information in a letter to be mailed to your home around Aug. 1.  

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to assure you and your parents that ULM’s Division of Residential Life is taking a number of precautions to help in ensuring your on-campus living accommodations will be ready. Below are some of the actions we have taken to prepare the rooms, common spaces, and lobbies for your move-in.

  • All rooms will receive a review by our maintenance staff and are cleaned by Service Master Clean with disinfectant. 
  • Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, this year ULM Residential Life has contracted with a company to perform a sanitizing procedure that is approved by the CDC and EPA. They will use an electrostatic sprayer with Virex Plus, which is a hospital grade disinfectant.
    • The technology behind the electrostatic sprayer is that it touches 100% of all surfaces in a room, hallway, elevator, laundry room, study room, lobbies, etc.
    • This does not mean that your chance of contracting COVID-19 is zero. However, it is an additional highly effective step we are taking for your safety.
  • Once you move in, we encourage you to follow the guidelines provided by the CDC and ULM (please view:  ulm.edu/coronavirus).  We are placing a COVID-19 check list in your room to assist in helping you stay safe. We also encourage you to connect with your roommates/suitemates about what all you can do to ensure a healthy, clean living area.

ULM Residential Life is doing our part before you move-in and will continue to disinfect and clean high traffic common areas throughout the semester.  Once you move in, we are counting on you to do your part to keep your environment clean and our campus community safe.

Should you have any questions, please give us a call.

Go Warhawks!
