Covid and Billing Notes

Covid-19 Preparations and Precautions

We're taking steps to help keep all Lancers safe. Please help us by reading and adhering to the precautions set below.

RCL staff will be available at check-in locations to answer questions and provide clarification. 

We encourage students to limit move-in assistance from family and friends to 3 helpers (maximum) in an effort to promote social distancing.

RCL suggests students and helpers bring:

  • Face coverings
  • Safety items (PPE)
  • Gloves
  • Move-in carts
  • Dollies
  • Pull carts

Due to sanitation requirements, Longwood cannot provide these items.

Cleaning

Housekeeping will be disinfecting common places and surfaces regularly on move-in dates. 

University Volunteer Assistance

To uphold social distancing and safety, Longwood University volunteers will not be available to assist students moving into main campus housing.

Social Distancing

Please adhere to the social distancing signage in the residence halls.


Outstanding Bills

If you have outstanding financial obligations with Longwood University, please resolve these issues prior to move-in

In accordance with Longwood University policy, any student with an outstanding bill will not be permitted to move into Longwood-managed housing or to consume dining hall meals. 

Questions regarding outstanding bills can be directed to Cashiering and Student Accounts (434)395-2067 or Financial Aid (434)395-2077.

Things to Think About Before Move-In

Personal Property/Renter's Insurance

  • Do NOT leave your personal belongings unattended.
  • RCL strongly encourages students to invest in a Renter's Insurance policy. Please review current insurance policies to determine if your personal property is covered while living on campus. 

Farmville In August

Farmville is very hot in August. We've done this before (a lot) and we recommend the following: 

  • Wear light-colored, comfortable clothing, and sturdy shoes
  • Bring and drink plenty of fluids
  • Take breaks to prevent overheating

If you have questions pertaining to the campus or the Town of Farmville, ask any staff member.

Talk to Your Future Roommate

Make an effort to contact your future roommate(s) to discuss what items you are bringing to campus and how you would like to decorate your room. And remember, "STUFF" multiplies.

Moderation is always a helpful packing guideline when you prepare to live with others.
