Student Services, Campus Restrictions and Other Resources

Dear Roosevelt Students,

We hope this email finds you all healthy and following best practices for maintaining good health. We are aware that the move to online learning may be difficult for some students. If you don’t have access to the technology needed to start online classes or are experiencing some other hardship related to COVID-19, please fill out the Laker Grant Request Form, and someone from the Dean of Students Office will reach out to you to support you in this transition.


Updates on campus restrictions and student services have been made on Roosevelt’s COVID-19 emergency response website.
