Finishing up Fall 2020
The coronavirus pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our society, but our Skyhawk community has risen to the challenge. Together we safely managed a reopening of campus for in-person instruction and despite our hard work, circumstances require us to complete our semester virtually. Campus is still your home and the best place for you to be to finish the semester strong. Your learning and educational pursuits don’t stop with these end-of-semester modifications. We are still #FLCTogether.
The Governor continues to urge all Coloradans to wear masks in public, and to do a better job avoiding socializing and mixing between households. COVID-19 is still very present in our communities and we need to do our part in reducing spread.

The first class meeting for each class is online — you will meet your professor, fellow students, and get course syllabi. Students and employees will await their COVID-19 results and clearance for in-person work and learning.
Classes that are scheduled to be in-person will switch to being held in-person, in classrooms.
The Rocket Grill and Jones coffee shop are now closed. Meal plans continue through December 5 with limited hours after November 25 for students living on campus.
For the students living on campus over the Fall Break, the dining hall will have food available for you.
Fort Lewis College is not refunding fall semester housing charges, because residence halls remain open and campus services continue to be available to all students. In fact, we strongly recommend that students stay on campus to ensure a successful completion of the semester. Housing occupants are bound to the Student Housing Contract and may not cancel in order to change place of residence to a private home, apartment or other off‑campus accommodation (while remaining a student at Fort Lewis College).
Finally, all students are asked to test, quarantine, and return home only once they have received a negative test result.
24-hour Quiet Hours are in effect. Please be sensitive to your neighbors’ need to sleep and study during finals.
Residence halls close Saturday, December 5 at 9 a.m. for Winter Break.
Sign up for your Check Out Day
Please tell us which day you plan to checkout from the halls for Fall 2020 using the link sent to your FLC email.
Preparing for Check Out
There was a detailed email sent to your FLC email on how to prepare your room for checking out. If you plan on leaving your vehicle at FLC over break, you must move it to the South Stadium or Skyhawk Lot. Cars not moved may be towed for snow removal.
Once you leave for break, you will not be allowed back into your residence hall until the halls re-open on Monday, January 25 through Wednesday, January 27. You will be emailed your scheduled time to return before departing for Winter Break.
Every student staying MUST register to stay In your apartment over break.
You will be contacted via email if cars need to be moved for plowing. Please be checking your Fort Lewis emails daily for potential notifications.
Register for Skyhawk Alert for emergency communication over the break.
During the break, La Plata Integrated Health will help provide healthcare coverage for students that remain on campus. More information to come.
If you need assistance over the break, please call 970-335-8869.
Students who travel outside of the area should quarantine for 5-7 days from last possible exposure and monitor symptoms.
