For students who may be experiencing illness, or have been exposed to someone who tested positive for the coronavirus, we understand how challenging, confusing and upsetting this time is for you. Campus Living is committed to assisting you, as best we can, during this difficult time.
You should prepare to spend up to 14 days in quarantine and should bring any items that you expect you will need during that time. Suggested items to pack include:
Goodyear Area Office
Flickinger Village Office
Contact University Police
They will direct you to the professional staff on duty.
If you do not have your own vehicle to move to your quarantine assignment, transportation will be arranged for you. A shuttle company will be called to pick you up. Details of where and when to meet the shuttle will be communicated to you by Campus Living.
Campus Living staff will notify you of the location of your quarantine assignment and will communicate instructions for how to retrieve your key.
* If the bed in your quarantine assignment is a different size than the bed in your current room, disposable linens will be provided.
Monday - Fridays from 1:00pm - 7:00pm*
Saturday - Sunday from 1:00pm - 4:00pm*
When placing orders provide the delivery service with our building address (123 Goodyear Road) and your contact information.
Staff will retrieve the items at the main entrance and work as quickly as possible to deliver the items directly to your room.
* Hours may vary during winter break. Residents will be notified if times are modified.
A case of bottled water is provided when students enter quarantine.
A reusable water bottle is provided to all students in quarantine rooms. This bottle can be refilled with the sink in your room.
Bottled water is also provided with delivered meals.
Our professional staff will be checking in on you daily by phone to see how you are doing. Please let us know if you have any questions or need additional assistance. We are here to help.

Limited mail and package service will be provided to you. Use your Fall 2020 campus address, not your temporary quarantine address. Mail will be delivered directly to your room approximately 2-3 days after it arrives on campus. Mail that can fit under the door will be placed there. If you are receiving a package you will be notified in advance. Packages will be delivered to your door, and staff will knock after delivering the package outside your door. While in quarantine, please limit you package orders.
If you have trash that you would like picked up we ask that you please tie your trash bag closed, and place this outside your room in the hallway by 9:00am Monday through Friday.
If you need to have clothes laundered, items need to be bagged in a CLEAR plastic bag and labeled with name and room number. Place bag outside door on Tuesdays and Fridays by 9am.
Clear plastic bags are available by calling:
Goodyear Area Office (716) 829-3144
Flickinger Village Office (716) 645-7906
Failure to abide by these instructions will result in a referral to Student Conduct and Advocacy for campus conduct charges. You may also be subject to immediate dismissal from on campus housing.
We ask you to be responsible for cleaning your room and bathroom. Supplies are provided for you.
In the event of a fire alarm activation, you must evacuate the building. Please go to the door of the room you are in and feel the back of the door for heat. If the door is HOT, leave it closed and contact University Police at (716) 645-2222.
If the door is cool, open the door and look in both directions for any sign of visible fire or smoke. If there are no signs of smoke or fire, use the closest safe exit path to evacuate the building, wearing face covering and maintaining social distance.
If smoke or fire are visible and you can evacuate, go in the opposite direction of the smoke and fire to the nearest exit, once out of the building, seek a place with appropriate distancing to the other evacuees and notify police of your location outside the building.
If the smoke and fire are blocking your escape, return to your room, close the door, place damp towels around the door to obstruct the smoke, and call University Police and let them know of your location.
Over the course of your quarantine UB staff will be in contact with you about how you are doing and whether you are experiencing new or worsening symptoms. It is important that you provide this information honestly and answer any other questions that may be asked to the best of your ability. Your answers will help us to work with your health care provider and/or local health department to determine when your quarantine will end.
Once you have been cleared for release from quarantine, our staff will assist you in transitioning back to your on-campus living space.
