Housing Contracts & COVID-19

In consultation with federal, state, and local officials, UVU made the determination that following Spring Break, the remainder of the semester will be delivered in an online format as much as reasonably possible. This was not an easy or light decision as UVU is aware there are many affected by this decision including students returning home while still under active rental agreements. The UVU community understands what a difficult situation this creates but the safety and security of UVU students, faculty, and staff is of the highest importance. The global pandemic COVID-19 virus has created is unprecedented. It has disrupted almost every aspect of daily life. Since UVU is not a party to the rental agreements, UVU unfortunately cannot provide legal advice or representation for students to cancel their housing contracts. We have reached out to several apartment complexes encouraging them and are hopeful the apartment managers will be willing to work with students as their living arrangements have changed. UVU apologizes for the inconvenience this unparalleled change has presented but this is a developing situation that UVU is trying its best to navigate. Here are some additional resources that may help you during this time:

 

How can I access food resources?

Check the status of the UVU Food Pantry by visiting the pantry website. If the pantry is open, please bring your UVU ID to access non-perishable food, hygiene items, and/or on-campus food vouchers. The pantry is located in SC 105. If the pantry is closed, please visit http://bit.ly/UVUFOOD to access community food resources.

Are there community resources available to students who are facing food or housing insecurity? 

Yes. Please visit http://www.uvu.edu/studentcare to access community resources or dial 211 to help support food or housing insecurity. You can also dial 211 to access United Way of Utah County or visit https://unitedwayuc.org/COVID-19

 What if I can’t pay a bill or have an urgent, unexpected expense? 

If you have a specific expense that threatens your housing, health, or safety, you can apply for the expense to be covered by the UVU emergency fund. These funds are usually given in amounts ranging from $50-$500. You are only eligible for this funding if you have already accepted all grants and/or scholarships available to you.

What if I do not have a computer or internet to participate in on-line classes?
