Back to campus to-do list

With the on-going pandemic, your return to campus is going to look a little different this semester. Make sure you've completed these tasks prior to arriving on campus to ensure a smooth and safe transition back to school.

Get tested

For the safety of all students, those moving into on-campus housing (including 650 Lincoln, Younion, Green Crossing, Park Place and Greek Village) must show proof of COVID-19 testing and clearance from Student Health Services within 14 days of your move-in date. Students must upload proof of their COVID-19 testing results to the Student Health Center’s My Health Space portal. 

Even if you are not living on campus, students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to have a COVID-19 diagnostic test to protect the health and well-being of the campus community.

Be prepared for parking

Student parking permits are now on sale online only. To help abide by physical distancing, all permits will be mailed to the address you select. Please allow enough time to receive your mailed permit before you return to campus.

For more information, visit the parking and transportation services website, where you can see parking options and purchase your permit.

Move in

If you are living on campus, visit the housing website and make sure you have completed everything on the mandatory checklist for move in prior to your arrival.

Register with the Student Disability Resource Center

If needed, register with the Student Disability Resource Center. The Student Disability Resource Center provides disability-related accommodations.

Take the pledge

#IPledgeColumbia is a commitment to approach the upcoming changes on campus with respect and concern, so we'll all be safer. Demonstrate your commitment to keep the University of South Carolina community in good health by taking the pledge and honoring it during the upcoming semester.

Stay safe and informed

Before your return and after your arrival make sure you stay healthy and safe by wearing a face covering, keeping a minimum of 6 feet distance from others, washing your hands and staying home if you're feeling sick. 

Be sure to stay up to date with the university's COVID-19 website and messages you receive from the university.
