Northwest Association of College & University Housing Officers


NWACUHO recognizes the impact COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has had on our institutions and specifically in our residence systems. With the impact reaching all functional areas within residence, NWACUHO would like to provide a centralized resource for our membership that compiles information around support and planning that our regional institutions are engaged with.

NWACUHO wishes you the best in your continued efforts to prepare for this complex issue. Scroll to the bottom of this page for live-updating resource lists and contact sheets.

Please email communications@nwacuho.org to request additional resources, support, or roundtable opportunities.

Upcoming NWACUHO Roundtables:

The Board of Directors are organizing State and Provincial specific roundtables for discussions around COVID-19. The format of these roundtables will be flexible and we will look to answer questions or topics that arrive to us in the order they are asked. The topics of questions can also be affiliated with any functional area within residence.

There have been many roundtables and on-going discussions around reactions and plans to COVID-19. The goal of these roundtable discussions will be to move away from response and look towards planning for summer and Fall.  Since ACE (and all connected events) were cancelled recently, the opportunity to come together can be even more valued at this time.
