On-Campus Housing and Dining

Note: The following information pertains to the 2020-21 academic year.

On-Campus Housing

Things will feel different during the 2020-21 academic year, but Aquinas College is committed to building a strong community on campus and online to provide our faculty, staff and students with valuable experiences and relationships. Please refer to the Move-In web page for more details about new move-in procedures and helpful information about moving into your new home on campus.

On-campus housing will reopen on Jan. 16 for the spring semester.

Visitors and guests

Non-AQ student guests are not permitted in on-campus housing (except when assisting a residential student during fall Move-In). AQ students (both residential and non-residential) are permitted in on-campus housing.

All guests must follow campus visitor and guest protocol.

Don’t forget! All students and guests must follow campus health and safety guidelines including washing hands often, practicing social distancing and wearing a cloth face covering.

Campus Dining

Wege Dining will reopen for the spring semester beginning at dinner on Jan. 17. See the What's Open page for Wege Dining, Moose Cafe and The Corner hours of operation.

For the 2020-21 academic year, Wege Dining, Corner Cafe and Moose Cafe will be open, but adjustments will be made to the spaces and service in order to adhere to social distancing, personal hygiene, and health and safety practices. Please refer to the Aquinas College DineSafe plan for detailed information about health and safety protocols for Campus Dining. Students will receive more information soon about dining and how you can use your dining swipes on campus.
