COVID-19 Protocols

Emory University has put into place important COVID-19 protocols, policies, and preventions for our community to live and learn in a safe and healthy environment. The continued partnership and compliance of our community members plays an essential role in our ability to move forward with COVID-19, and we are grateful for your willingness to contribute to a safe and health learning environment.

Should you test positive for COVID-19 PRIOR to coming back to campus, please follow CDC guidance for isolation and quarantine.

Should you become exposed to or test positive for COVID-19 while you are living on the Atlanta or Oxford campuses, please follow the step-by-step instructions on the What do I do if? page of Emory Forward. The Emory Forward website outlines important COVID-19 expectations, safety preventions, and resources for all campus members.


Early Arrival

Individual requests to move in early can be made via the Early Arrival Request Form, available on your MyHousing page after June 1.

Students participating in a pre-orientation program or are part of an Emory sponsored program with early arrival permission do not need to complete the Early Arrival Request Form.

Renters Insurance

Renters insurance protects belongings, such as a laptop, smartphone, bicycle, textbooks, clothing, and other costly personal items from theft, vandalism, damage, and other covered events, and can help you repair or replace property, as well as provide personal liability insurance. Renters insurance also protects you and your family financially against unintentional damage to university property or bodily injury to others for which you are legally liable.

Emory University is not responsible for replacing stolen or damaged property. To help protect you and your family, all students who live in University Housing are strongly encouraged to carry renters’ insurance. We have partnered with GradGuard to provide students with a quality low-cost option. GradGuard Renters Insurance offers lower deductibles and premiums, and small claims will not affect your personal premiums for years to come.

Please visit, and select Emory University for more information.
