Move-In Information (Spring 2021) and Testing Requirements

Return to residence halls: Saturday, February 13, and Sunday, February 14

Residents meeting the following conditions* are permitted to return to their residential assignment starting at 10am on Saturday, February 13

  • All resident students+ are required to provide a documented negative COVID-19 test result (details below).
  • By returning to their room assignment, all resident students affirm their agreement with the COVID-19 Campus Policy that includes the requirement to wear a mask at all times in campus housing as defined in the policy, maintain social distancing, and adhere to all guest restrictions.
  • All resident students must be in good financial standing and cleared by the Cavalier Express Center (CEC). Please contact the CEC (610.902.8188, cavalierexpress@cabrini.edu) if you have any questions. 
  • All resident students will receive a confirmation email from the Office of Residence Life approving their return based on meeting all conditions.   

*Students who do not meet these conditions will not have a working campus ID card for building access or meals. 

+Resident students who have tested positive for COVID-19 between November 14 and present are not required to provide a documented negative test result, but must still submit this information to the Office of Residence Life. The University is aware of all students who fit this description due to the requirement to inform the University of a positive test.  

Mitigation measures to assist with your health and safety will remain in effect and will continue to be enforced. As such, we ask all students to make the appropriate plans have a sufficient supply of masks and to return with an understanding that non-compliance can result in a loss of campus housing without reimbursement.  

Unlike the fall semester move-in, no guests (including parents) will be permitted to enter any residences. Students returning with large items for which they will need assistance should contact the Office of Residence Life (610.902.8410, reslife@cabrini.edu) to discuss options. 

Required Testing

A documented negative COVID-19 test result, assessed via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, is required for resident students to gain access to campus. Results must be from a PCR test; those from rapid results tests will not be accepted.

Subsequently, the University is providing the following testing options. Please note, all residential students must  indicate how they intend to submit test results (on-campus testing, at-home testing, or previous positive diagnosis).

How to indicate your intention for testing (do this now):  Access CabriniOne, choose the "Student" tab located at the top, choose "myHousing" located in the bottom right corner, go to the "Application" tab and choose "COVID-19 Testing." 

On-Campus Testing
Cabrini will be offering on-campus testing free to resident students on:

Saturday, February 6, 10am to 2pm
Monday, February 8, 10am to 4pm
Tuesday, February 9, 10am to 4pm

Information on pool testing at Cabrini (PDF) - *All residents coming to campus to test should review this

A sign-up date and time is required. Students must sign up no later than Sunday, January 31. To sign up, students should respond to the registration survey/sign-up sent by the Office of Residence Life. 

Students who are tested on campus will return home after testing to await their result and a confirmation email from Residence Life approving their return to campus.

At-Home Testing
Resident students who cannot make one of the three on-campus testing events can:

    • Order an At Home Testing Kit ($110 + free shipping). Testing kits should be ordered immediately - do not delay in this effort. 
    • Arrange for their own PCR testing (rapid tests will not be accepted) so long as a documented result can be provided electronically to the University. This testing can be with your PCP or an Urgent Care / CVS.

Next Steps After Testing

Students who are coming to campus on February 6, 8, or 9 for testing will be notified of their results.  Please check your Cabrini email regularly.  You should quarantine as much as possible between your testing date and your move-in date.

Students who utilize a 3rd party service (doctor, CVS) or use an At-Home testing kit should test no earlier than February 6 and then mail in your testing kit if using an At-Home kit.  Once results are obtained, upload documentation using the directions below.

Uploading documentation:  Test results should be uploaded under the "COVID-19 Testing" application under the application tab in the myHousing account through the Cabrini Portal and choose "Attach files" at the bottom of the page. Documentation must include your name, the test result, and the date of the test.  Please capture as much information as you can.

Out-of-State Travelers

To comply with the spirit of Pennsylvania’s requirements for those traveling to PA from outside states/countries, students traveling from other states/countries should quarantine from the time they take their test until they get to campus.

Traveling by Plane
Any student who is flying to campus on an airplane is likely coming from outside of Pennsylvania and will be required to comply with the Commonwealth’s requirements for those traveling to PA from outside states/countries

    • These students must have a COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering Pennsylvania. Recognizing that results may not be available prior to campus arrival, students will quarantine immediately upon arrival to campus. 
      • OR
    • These students will be required to arrive between February 2 and February 4 and will quarantine for 10 days on campus in Casey House upon arrival to campus. Those arrangements will be coordinated with the Office of Residence Life. 

If you are unable to participate in the on-campus testing and the negative test result requirement causes a financial hardship, please email return@cabrini.edu for reimbursement options.

Students who test positive will be required to isolate at home and will be welcomed to campus once isolation requirements have been satisfied.
