Returning to Campus with the Roosevelt App
This week Roosevelt University launched a new version of the Roosevelt mobile app. All students, faculty and staff are required to complete a self-assessment each day they intend to visit campus; a clearance to enter after accurately submitting the form must be shown to Campus Safety staff in order to enter a University building.
If you plan to be on campus this fall, downloading the app will save you time accessing all Roosevelt facilities.
Download the “Roosevelt University Mobile” app from the Apple (roosevelt.edu/ios) or Google (roosevelt.edu/android) stores.
Have a great weekend. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Dear Roosevelt Community,
On Monday, July 6, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced changes to student visa exemptions that require students with F-1 and M-1 visas to not take a fully online course load to enter or remain in the United States this fall. In light of the global pandemic, the timing and underlying intent of this policy change is uncaring, ill-conceived, and shows complete disregard for public health and safety.

Dear Roosevelt Students,
As we begin what I hope will be a safe, healthy and productive summer, I wanted to express my gratitude for the amazing perseverance you have demonstrated during what continues to be one of the most challenging global events of our lifetime. These are difficult circumstances. The pursuit of higher education is never easy, and the stress of a global pandemic certainly adds to that challenge.
