Prettyman & Scarborough Halls

Scarborough Hall building use

Scarborough Hall will be utilized as an isolation building for on campus residents that are COVID positive and are unable to go home to isolate. During the first few weeks of the semester it will also serve as overflow housing, where students will be placed temporarily until a permanent assignment can be made. We do not anticipate having overflow housing past the end of September. Isolation housing and overflow housing will be assigned to different floors to mitigate exposures.
