Dear Greek Village resident:
The Spring 2021 semester is almost here, and we are excited to welcome you back to campus!
This message contains updated instructions about the January move-in process. Please read and share with those who may be assisting you with move-in. In order to Protect the Pack, Fraternity and Sorority Life will strive to provide a move-in experience that is as contactless as possible.
If you or your move-in assistants feel sick or have been in contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19, we ask that you delay your arrival to campus until you have been cleared by a medical professional.
Before you Arrive:
- Sign Up for an appointment for Move-In. Appointments are required and your ability to schedule one will end on January 13 at 5:00 pm.
- Log into MyPackPortal and go to the Housing Portal
- Select Manage My Housing which is located in the red navigation bar
- Select Spring Move-in Appointments
- Hit the Save and Continue Button
- Select your move-in appointment
- Once you select your appointment, you will be asked to confirm it
- Once you confirm your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email sent to your ncsu.edu email address
- Move-in appointments for groups moving into new properties (Beta Theta Pi, Pi Beta Phi, Sigma Kappa, and Zeta Tau Alpha) will be from January 14 – January 18
- Move-in appointments for returning organizations will begin January 16 – January 18
- If you need an appointment after January 18th, or miss the deadline to schedule one online, please contact your CRD or House Director to book an appointment.
- Get tested! All students, faculty, and staff are required to submit proof of a COVID-19 test, taken 3-5 days prior to their arrival back to campus. Please see the Protect the Pack website for testing information. If you are unable to receive a test prior to returning to NC State, you will complete a PCR test upon arrival, prior to receiving your keys/code to your room. Please remember to submit your COVID test results ASAP, according to university instruction. If the university has not had sufficient time to process your test results, you may be retested.
- ALL RESIDENTS will start the move-in process by checking in at the Greek Village Testing Site at House 7, located at 2313 Fraternity Ct. DO NOT proceed to your chapter house until you are cleared to do so.
- Onsite staff/volunteers will either verify your results were submitted or provide you with a kit for testing
- Only residents should go to House 7. Remember that you will need your student ID when you check-in, so please make sure you have it with you.
- Upon arrival at the Chapter House, check-in with your CRD/HD to pick up your allotment of masks and key/code, if applicable. Your Student ID will be activated according to your move-in schedule for access to the facility.
- In order to create a move-in experience that is as contactless as possible, NC State staff and volunteers will not be able to assist in unloading or moving student belongings. Please plan accordingly.
- Each student is limited to no more than two (2) people to assist them with move-in.
- Maintain physical distancing throughout the move-in process.
- Face coverings, over both mouth and nose, are required to be worn on campus at all times by residents and their move-in assistants.
- Limit the number of people in an elevator to just yourself and your two move-in assistants (if applicable).
Ongoing Surveillance Testing:
Throughout the spring semester, NC State will require weekly surveillance testing for the following groups:
- All students living in residence halls and in Greek Village.
- All students enrolled in face-to-face classes.
- Designated employees, including critical, essential and research employees, as well as faculty, teaching assistants and graduate assistants in face-to-face instruction roles.
If you fall into one of these categories, you will receive more information about surveillance testing from the university. NC State will provide no-cost testing on campus throughout the semester. For now, you should plan to be tested at House 7. We will likely develop a schedule so we can manage the high number of students who will need to be tested. House 7 is scheduled for demolition in February, so we will provide more details on updated locations soon. It is likely we will utilize the outdoor dining areas. Again, more information to follow.
Similar to the outdoor dining areas that were set up outside of University Dining Halls, Greek Village will have 3 outdoor dining areas for the spring semester. Please be aware of these as you enter parking lots. Tables are not to be moved.
- Resident and non-resident members of surrounding facilities are welcome to cross-utilize these spaces. Use is not limited to, but suggested for, the following groups to maximize distribution during meal times.
- SN, SPE, KD and DG utilize the area behind Sig Ep
- ADP, LCA, DZ and PBP utilize the area behind Delta Zeta
- BTP, KAT, ZTA and SK utilize the area behind Sigma Kappa.
- Tables are limited to 6 people per table.
- For now, just the tables are being installed. Later this spring we will cover the areas with tents to provide some shade and light them in the evening hours.
- Any tables that were placed on your back patios will be picked up and utilized elsewhere on campus. These were loaned to us when campus dining shut down. KKG will have new tables delivered.
- Please be respectful of these tables as we have spent considerable money providing these. We hope at the end of COVID to relocate these to a central area to support outdoor programming in the future.
- Here are the specific locations:
- Masks are required unless you are alone in your private, enclosed residence room or actively eating or drinking while maintaining physical distancing
- Designated isolation and quarantine rooms for students living on-campus will be utilized to house any positive students or those identified as needing to quarantine. It is not our intention to isolate or quarantine in the chapter house unless the university depletes the inventory of other spaces or a high percentage of residents are positive.
As a university, we do all we can to make navigating campus and getting through the check-in process as smooth and efficient as possible. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we move you and your neighbors into your new home!
If you have questions regarding your arrival on campus or the move-in process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
