This week, seniors, juniors, and first-year students are welcomed back to campus for spring semester.

Instead of the traditional move-in day, students are returning to campus throughout the week in order to maintain physical distance. A check-in with Residential Education staff in the Science Center and COVID-19 testing in Hales Gym is also part of the move-in experience. After unloading vehicles and getting settled into rooms, students are quarantined until test results show they are clear. While quarantined, students are invited to participate in virtual move-in week and welcome back activities.

To see more move-in days photos visit Oberlin’s Flickr page.
