MILWAUKEE — Marquette University is now allowing its students to begin moving out of their dorm rooms.

The news comes just a few days after the university announced they would have online classes through the rest of the semester.

Students who live in residence halls on campus, can start moving their things out beginning Wednesday. Marquette has created a sign-up for families moving out students. This is to make sure the university maintain social distancing practices.

Families also have the option to fill out an exemption formand hold-off on moving out until mid-April at the earliest. This option is for families who maybe feel unsafe or are just unable to go to campus at this time.

There is also an option for families who can not return to campus at all this semester. If you find yourself in this situation, you can contact Marquette's moving partnerswho will work with families beginning in April.

For students living in apartments, they can choose whether or not they want to stay, as Marquette and other landlords do not have the right to end students leases early except for eviction.
