University of Michigan students say the school’s testing and quarantine protocols are seriously lacking — and they’re taking to TikTok to prove it.

“I’m making a video to share with you what it’s like up here,” junior Sam Burnstein, 20, says in a video he filmed after testing positive for COVID-19 and moving into one of the empty apartments the university has designated for those who contract the coronavirus. “We were given almost no supplies. We were given no food, no masks, no gloves, no microwave, no bed sheets, no soap, no cleaning supplies, nothing — except we were given one roll of toilet paper, single-ply. Oh, and did I mention there’s a roach infestation as well?”

He concludes the video by challenging the university’s president to spend a single night in one of the apartments and “let us know what you think.”

Throughout the ordeal, he says in the video, the students of the Graduate Employees’ Organization have been “saviors” for those in the university’s quarantine, as they’ve been donating their leftover food and supplies for the past few days.

The organization has also been striking since Sept. 8 in the name of the school “failing to keep students safe from COVID,” says Burnstein.

“We’re striking over the university’s totally inadequate reopening plans and just the series of policies they put in place over the summer that’s making students and workers on campus unsafe,” GEO Secretary Amir Fleischmann told the Michigan Daily.

Burnstein is not the only student who has gone public with his complaints.

“Is anyone else who goes to the University of Michigan just like what the f–k is happening right now and, like, terrified of like what’s going to happen?” says another University of Michigan student named Ruby in one of many videos documenting the goings-on at the school.

The University did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment but told Insider that students aren’t required to use the school’s housing to quarantine — although Burnstein told the outlet that this was not made clear to him — and that it hasn’t received any complaints about roaches or other pests.

“Each single-occupancy apartment includes a furnished bedroom, including sheets, blankets and pillowcases. Each kitchen has a refrigerator and oven. Microwaves are being procured for each apartment,” the University of Michigan spokesperson told Insider in a statement.

University of Michigan students say the school's quarantine protocols are seriously lacking — and they're taking to TikTok to prove it, showing they got no supplies but one roll of toilet paper.
