The College is continuing to monitor and make adjustments in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation.
We know that the rapidly changing nature of this situation can be difficult and that we may not have all of the answers you are looking for right now; we will do all we can to help you through this transition.
The College will transition to online instruction on Monday, March 23.
From OIT and CCAPP to Lavery Library and our Educational Technologist, Fisher has resources in place to guide you through the online process and to support your academic progression.
When can I move out of my residence hall?
You will need to make an individual appointment to have access to your room before 6 p.m. Sunday, March 22.
Given Governor Cuomo's latest executive order issued on Friday, March 20, we are suspending all residence hall check-outs as of 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 22. Appointments scheduled after March 22 will be canceled and rescheduled at a later date.
- If you need to return to campus to move out and want to come move out by 6 p.m. on March 22:
Appointments are still available for 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Please complete the Residence Hall Room Check-Out Form in ResLife Online to make an appointment or to change your originally scheduled date.
- If you need to return to campus to move out and CANNOT move out by March 22:
Your belongings will be secure in your room and once the governor's order is lifted, we will be back in touch to make arrangements for checking out.
- If you have already moved out of your residence hall room and do not need to return to campus:
Please complete the Residence Hall Room Check-Out Form in ResLife Online ASAP so we know you have moved out and to review instructions on how to return your room key. Once you fill out the form, we will also stop emailing you about checking out.
These move out instructions are based on the federal, state, and county guidance we've received. Please continue to watch your email for any changes before returning to campus to get your things. Should there be changes or further restrictions to access to the residence halls, remain assured your belongings will remain secured in your residence hall room.
Health and Wellness Center Updates
In light of the rapidly changing coronavirus situation, the Health and Wellness will be closing and all staff will be working from home. We realize this is a disruption in services at a time that we might be needed most. We strongly encourage all students to continue practicing the guidance that has been provided by the CDC including but limited to proper hand hygiene, social distancing, and staying home from any continued obligations, including work, if you are ill. For continued health information through the CDC, please visit the CDC website.
We will continue to be as responsive as possible to the firstname.lastname@example.org inbox and will also be monitoring phone messages that come into the center, so if you are in need of support for medical needs at this time please utilize those means. For medical needs that cannot wait we are encouraging students to access community resources such as Urgent Care or an emergency room in the case of true medical emergency.
For mental health needs, we are working on an individual plan with any of the students who are currently receiving our services. We will be in touch with these students directly to determine a plan within the next few days.
For all students, we know this is an unprecedented time of uncertainty. Please consider following the Center (@fisherhealth) both on Instagram and Twitter as we are continuing to send out resources and support through these platforms. We will continue to be as responsive as possible.
As a reminder, the direct number to the center is (585) 385-8280.
