In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, US colleges and universities are giving students at least a week’s notice to pack up and leave campus until further notice.
Instead of in-person classes, courses will be held online. 
The move has left students scrambling to make alternative housing plans, and raises questions about whether they’ll have the resources to attend school online.

Students at a growing number of US schools have been told students to leave campus in the coming weeks and take their courses online — some with only a week’s notice — as states with significant outbreaks declared a state of emergency in the past week. While the move by schools like Harvard University, Amherst College, and Smith College is meant to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus, it presents a host of issues for students who don’t have a place to go or a way to get online. 

On Tuesday, Harvard told its more than 36,000 student body that they had about five days to vacate their dorm rooms. Students, required to be out of their on-campus housing by March 15, have to find new living accommodations for the foreseeable future, posing a challenge for those who don’t readily have a place to go like low-income or international students. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
