Stan State students playing a game.

We're Here for You

One of the best things about living on campus is that it allows you to focus on important things like studying, meeting new people, being independent, and graduating at the top of your class. 

Have a question or concern about living in the Village? Visit our Staff Directory or stop by the Housing Office to talk to a staff member. 

Recently, you should have received an email from Stan State Safety & Risk Management announcing the details of on-campus COVID-19 testing. 

Where do I submit my COVID-19 test results?
Do not email your results to a staff member or the Housing Office. Instead, submit test results to the online Student COVID-19 Testing Form.

Am I required to take a COVID-19 test because I live on campus? 
Residents are required to test monthly as part of health and safety screenings for our community. Free walk-up or drive-thru testing is available on-campus Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and test results are typically posted within 48 hours. 

Housing has created a testing schedule based on each residential unit: residents should test between the dates listed below that correspond with their unit number. 

Week 1 Group: Even-numbered Village 1 units and even-numbered South Side Village 3 units 
Units ending in –02, -04, -06, -08, -10, -12, -16, -18, -20, -22, -48, -50, -52, -54 should test between:

Residents who are traveling back to campus following breaks or who travel during the semester are encouraged to get tested immediately upon return from their destination. If possible, residents should test prior to coming back to campus; although we understand that this is not always possible.  

If I have recently traveled, do I need to quarantine when I return?
Residents who come back to campus after traveling should sequester and limit themselves to essential outings only, such as work, health care appointments, or picking up mail and groceries, for 14 days in their unit in conjunction with testing. Testing should be done on days 5-6 and then again during the range of days 11-14. This protocol is based on guidelines from the Stanislaus County Health Services Agency. 

I’m living on campus and tested positive. What happens now? 
Notify Housing immediately. You can call any time, any day of the week, at (209) 667-3675 and speak with a Housing staff member. Staff will help you isolate inside your unit, and will coordinate meal and grocery deliveries to your apartment or suite, laundry pick-up, trash and recycling disposal, and mail services.   

You will not be directed to leave campus, or asked to figure it out on your own – we want you to isolate in the safety and comfort of your apartment or suite - and, if you have roommates, we have units reserved specifically for them so they can safely quarantine as well. 

All residents should fill out a Daily Self-Screen once per day and continue to follow the guidelines put into place by Housing and Residential Life. This includes wearing a face covering in all public, indoor areas and when interacting with others, refraining from unnecessary travel, not allowing non-resident guests inside residential units, and regularly disinfecting commonly touched surfaces in-unit such as door handles, countertops, and faucets. 

Testing expectations for COVID-19 are subject to change based on campus and local conditions, state or county requirements or other factors.

A variety of free programs and activities are offered to Housing residents each month. Whether you're wanting to meet and connect with your neighbors, study and catch up or some homework, or get creative, there's a program for you.

Looking for something to do but don't feel like attending an event? Stop by the Village Connection Hub in the Community Center for a grab-and-go activity.
