Thanks for your patience and understanding as we prepare to welcome you to campus! In order to support the safety of our Pitt community, we are staggering Pitt Spring Arrival move-in days per guidance from health and safety experts.

As explained in the CMRO email sent on January 13, the University will provide you with one COVID-19 test via Quest, which should be used within the first two days of your seven-day shelter-in-place period prior to traveling to campus. Please register today for the test to be delivered to your current location by following the directions on the CMRO website.

You must take your COVID-19 test and receive a negative result before traveling to campus. If you test positive for COVID-19, you will need to be cleared by Student Health Service before returning to campus. Please monitor your Quest account and Pitt email for updates.

You will not be able to move into your residence hall if you do not complete the testing process.
