Spring 2022 Move-In Testing FAQs

*** UPDATED AS OF 01/14/21 at 9:15 PM ***

If I tested positive with COVID-19 recently, will I still need to be tested at move-in?

If you tested positive for COVID in the past 90 days you are exempt from Spring 2022 move-in testing; however, you will still need to sign-up for a “test” slot for check-in.  In lieu of being tested, please show a copy of your provider’s letter and/or a copy of your COVID-19 test results.  (Your documentation will need to have a test date to ensure it meets the 90-day window requirement)

Can I return to campus on Day 5 of isolation or quarantine, per the new CDC guidelines?

Millersville University is using the guidance from CDC for congregate settings. The University requires a 10-isolation period for students who test positive with COVID-19 and a 10-day quarantine period for students who are unvaccinated and had a significant exposure to a COVID positive individual.

Are you accepting home test kits?

The University is providing FREE antigen testing at move-in.  We will NOT be accepting negative results from a home test kit.

Are your accepting negative test results from an outside facility?

A rapid Antigen or PCR test is acceptable if performed at a medical facility/pharmacy/doctor’s office, etc. Remember, tests need to be performed within 72 hours prior to arriving on campus. At-home tests are NOT accepted.

You still need to schedule an appointment for testing and show your results to the testing staff to be exempt from testing. They will then provide you with a clearance certificate to move-in to the residence halls.

What happens if I test positive?

Those with a positive result will be contacted and provided additional instructions. A student must return home to isolate for the required 10 days before returning to campus. More complete instructions will be given at that time. 

What about weather concerns for Sunday and Monday?

Additional testing has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 18, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the South Village Great Room for those who may be need that option. You may change your appointment through your MAX account as long as enough testing slots are available.

Spring 2022 Move-In Information: Testing & Process

We appreciate your help and compliance with this process as we want everyone in the residence halls to be healthy and safe.  

Spring 2022 Move-In Information: Testing & Process

Following recent guidelines and best practices, Millersville University made the decision to test all students living in the residence halls for COVID-19 as part of the Spring 2022 move-in process. Health care professionals will be on campus to administer the rapid COVID-19 test (free of charge) in Susan P. Luek Hall (24 Pucillo Dr., Millersville, PA 17551) on Sunday, January 16, 2022 and Monday, January 17, 2022 before all students will be permitted to enter their residence hall. Testing on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 will occur in the South Village Great Room. This includes new and returning students, vaccinated and non-vaccinated students. Student-athletes are exempt from this process as they have already undergone testing in accordance with NCAA guidelines.

Students living in the residence halls will need to present to Housing staff proof that they have tested negative before they can receive their room key or move back into the halls. 

If a student has proof of receiving a negative test that was administered within 72-hours prior to arriving on campus, they may present this to the health care professionals during your scheduled time in lieu of on-campus testing. We do understand this may cause various logistical hardships, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work through this process, which is designed to keep you and our campus community healthy and safe.
