A Summary of ISSS Recommendations for incoming international travelers for Summer Quarter:

  1. All LLU students who have traveled internationally within 30 days of their program or term start date should self-quarantine off-campus for a minimum of 14-days, though longer is desirable/preferable, before coming on the LLU campus. If a student intends to occupy student housing at Lindsay Hall or Daniels Hall, there may be some LIMITED quarantine options in those locations. Please call ahead to inquire with the dean of your respective residency hall. This applies to all new and returning students whether U.S. citizens or non-citizens.
  2. International Students (meaning non-citizens on LLU-sponsored student visas) should inform the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) (at intlstdsrv@llu.edu or phone 909-558-4955) of their arrival date in the U.S. as soon as their travel itinerary has finalized.
  3. International travelers living on-campus in the residence halls should contact their facility dean and inform (or provide a copy of their flight itinerary) of their arrival date to the U.S. and plans to self-quarantine off-campus or inquire about availability of on-campus quarantine. 
  4. International travelers should follow-up with LLU Student Health Services (at phone 909-558-8770) once their 14-day quarantine is completed to be cleared to be on the LLU campus.
