Food and Student Parking Options during Research Reopening

Posted on June 19, 2020. Note that some information or advice may have changed since posting.

Dear Colleagues,

Please make sure this information is relayed to your research teams.

The University does not plan to open any of the restaurants on campus until the end of July.  However, the Research Reopening Committee have worked with Campus Dining to ensure that an option is available. You may order food from Rohr's at the Morris Inn using the Grub Hub app. We realize this is likely not a cost effective option for graduate students, but wanted you to know it is available.

Alternatively, researchers may bring their lunch to campus and use the refrigerators and microwaves in kitchenettes. Please be sure to limit occupancy in these spaces to one person at a time to retrieve and/or heat your food. Also, please be sure to disinfect any surfaces touched in the process.

The gated lots on campus (B lots) will be open through the end of July and as long as students are not parked in a reserved spot, they won't receive a ticket. As long as the gates are up, students may park in those lots. I hope to receive notice before the gates will be operated as normal and students will have to return to their assigned lots. As soon as I learn any updates, I'll share via this list.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of the Research Reopening Committee. More information on the Phased Reopening of Research can be found here.

Thank you for your cooperation.
