ASU is in consultation with public health officials and national associations on recommended housing arrangements, and will accept requests for both shared housing spaces and single rooms.
ASU will also maintain vacant rooms for use as isolation spaces if needed. Common areas may be subject to restrictions depending upon current, local health conditions: face coverings will be required; high-touch points will be cleaned and disinfected frequently; and sanitation stations will be available.

- increased outdoor seating
- touchless payment systems
- sneeze guards/Plexiglas barriers
- extended dining hours.
