On-campus Residential Housing

Residential housing has returned to standard operating capacity. New Residence Hall remains offline for isolation and quarantine purposes as necessary. Please visit the Residential Housing website for additional information on housing options. Please note that only students who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 may live on campus in the fall.

Pre-Entrance Health Requirements

For fall 2021, in addition to other vaccination requirements, all residential students must receive a seasonal flu vaccination by November 15 but no sooner than July 2021. Students should upload a record of their flu vaccination to the OWL portal as soon as possible for review and verification by Student Health Services. Please note that students are not required to receive a vaccination that is medically contraindicated and may apply for a medical exemption.

Isolation and Quarantine

TCNJ has developed a comprehensive plan to isolate or quarantine residents who test positive for COVID-19. Students who need to quarantine or isolate will be provided with a temporary housing assignment in a designated quarantine or isolation building. To facilitate the move, students will be provided with a recommended packing list and a cart to transport their belongings. During this time, TCNJ Dining Services will take meal orders and deliver food to the new location. Students are not allowed to leave these rooms/units until they have been cleared by Student Health Services and/or the TCNJ Covid Comply Team.

Dining

All TCNJ dining facilities have returned to operation for fall 2021. Capacity limits are consistent with state guidelines, and to-go options remain in place. Members of the TCNJ community who have been granted a medical or religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination are permitted to use the dining facilities. All students, faculty, and staff must adhere to current face covering and distancing requirements. 

For locations and hours, visit the TCNJ Dining Services website
