Anarumo shares the latest news on the number of COVID-19 positive cases and commends students and employees on our collective progress in mitigating the virus’s spread. He also updates the community on the return of athletics, the expansion of dining services, student life programming and student support services for all residential, commuter and remote students.

Initial Notification

On December 27, 2020 the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) was signed into federal law. Norwich University received funding under this program for the express purpose of providing financial aid grants to students. Per Department of Education guidance, the funds must be prioritized for students with exceptional need. Students may use the grant for a component of their cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or childcare. If a student chooses, the grant may be used to satisfy his or her account’s outstanding balance.

Effective Monday, February 15, the modified room quarantine period will cease. Residential students will transition to a campus quarantine environment by residential building. All students will be required to remain on campus, but will be allowed to move about the campus more freely. Please note: students will only be allowed to enter the residential building in which they reside and are not permitted to enter any other residential buildings. Students will be able to participate in outdoor activities as well as indoor physical activities and student events with some restrictions to keep residential groups separate.
