Dear Registrar's Office,

My name is [Enter student name] and my student ID number is [Enter student ID number]. I know that the COVID-19 outbreak has had unprecedented impact on the school's operations, and wanted to thank you for your efforts in responding to this crisis in the best way possible.

To help with the school's policy of social distancing, I was requested to leave the campus. I have done my best to comply with the college's policy and do my part in fighting the epidemic. However, my circumstances would make it very challenging to continue the semester in decent conditions if I have to leave campus. [Enter more details about on what grounds you're requesting an exception (we provide a list of standard ones here), and/or your specific housing challenges].

Given the severe disruption that leaving campus would cause for me, I would like to request an authorization in writing to stay residing here for the semester. I really hope that you will be able to grant this request to help me mitigate the financial and psychological hardship that would be added to my disappointment in not being able to complete the semester as anticipated.

I would also really appreciate any advice or guidance on how the college housing situation may evolve in the coming months. Any information is greatly appreciated in this time of uncertainty.

All the best,

[Enter student name]
