Please note the following correction: Penfield Hall in its entirety has not been quarantined. Penfield Hall residents who have been identified as close contacts have been quarantined. Penfield Hall students testing positive for COVID-19 are being relocated to Browne Hall to isolate from others in order to prevent risk of additional exposure. The remaining students in Penfield Hall have been asked to shelter in place in order to contain any spread.

Dining Services

Effective immediately, the main dining room in the Donovan Dining Center will be closed to the campus community through Friday, December 18. However, Donovan Dining Center will be providing “to-go food service” for residents only, through Friday, December 18.

For general questions specific to housing, please email

Together we are #AnchorStrong!

Yours in education,
