Social Distancing Guidelines

The protocols below are in line with University of Houston COVID-19 Guidelines and are mandatory for all on-campus residents. Additional information can be found at

Note: As with all the guidance and protocols related to COVID-19, the University will adjust its guidance as necessary to reflect new information and findings.

Limiting face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of COVID-19:   

  1. Put distance between yourself and other people. Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread the virus. Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people. 

  2. Avoid gathering in groups. However, if a group is meeting, meet in a public place where 6 feet of social distancing can be maintained. Wearing masks is mandatory unless a resident has accommodation on file.

  3. Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.

  4. Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
