COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan

Student Housing

Reed's housing plan for the 2021–22 academic year is focused on a shared commitment to protect the campus community's health during the pandemic. The plan is informed by the CDC's COVID-19 Guidance for Shared or Congregate Housing

We are pleased that starting this fall, we are able to return to pre-pandemic occupancy for the 2021–22 academic year. The college will also continue to have designated residential spaces for isolation and quarantine as needed.
