More than 120 Northern Arizona University students living in on-campus apartments had less than two weeks to move so the university could use their rooms to quarantine students exposed to COVID-19.
Following the notice, some students said they were confused and frustrated when they learned they had to move a month after settling into the semester and felt the university did not take their welfare into consideration or plan ahead adequately.
“Our well-being was not put into perspective nor was it heard out. We are now being forced out of our settled work environments and homes. Our compensation? $300 cash and an apology with moving boxes and people to help move us,” an online petition created in response said.
