Residence Hall FAQ's and Move-Out Survey

Greetings Residence Hall Students,

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy. We miss having you here on campus, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented period. We realize you had to move out of your housing situation very quickly and that it's been an unsettling time with much uncertainty. We are writing today to share some details on a plan for retrieving your belongings. We hope this will address some of your concerns.

Our plan is to offer two options for your items in the residence halls:

  • Leave your belongings until next Fall
  • Move-out during a predetermine timeframe once the shelter-in-place is lifted.

In order to facilitate these processes, we ask that you complete this quick survey to assist us in planning once the "Stay at Home" order is lifted. Residence Hall Move-Out Survey.

As previously communicated to you by Student Finance, those of you who are not living on campus will be refunded the room and board charges for Spring Quarter 2020.  Those refunds should be reflected shortly on your billing statements.

We know you have questions about your items that remain in the residence halls. California Governor Newsome's "Stay at Home" order remains in effect through until further notices.  Our move-out timeline and procedures will be determined as we receive direction in the future from state and local health and government authorities.  We will communicate with you via your @puc.edu email address when we have more information on move-out. Until then, you do not need to worry about your items that may be in your residence hall room.

Thank you for your patience as we all wait this out together. We understand the uncertainty leads to several questions. We will try to answer the most frequently asked questions below:

Residence Life FAQ's

"When can I come back to campus?"

The College requests all students and families to not return to campus or the residence halls. Your personal items will remain locked in your room.

"Can I come the day California's "Stay at Home" order is lifted?"

No. In order to prioritize the health and safety of all residents and staff, you will be required to schedule a move-out appointment. Your access to your residence hall will only be active during your scheduled appointment time. We will send more information about this process once the "Stay at Home" order is lifted.

"But what if I REALLY need something that I can't live without for the quarter?"

If you have emergency items—books, medications, passports, etc., contact your Residence Hall Dean directly.  Do not plan to return to campus to retrieve your items.

"But I'm going to be in Angwin next week, can't I just run up to my room really quick?"

We are genuinely sorry, but no.  Until the "Shelter at Home" is lifted, the campus and residence halls are closed to all individuals not approved to reside in place.

Am I going to be charged if I can't come up to get my things right away?

No. The college understands this inconvenience, and you will not be charged for storing your items in your room while the CA "Shelter at Home" mandate is in place.

What if I'm coming back for fall quarter 2020? Can I just leave things in my current room?

Yes, this is a possibility. And, we can't wait to have you back living in the residence hall. Please fill out this short survey [link below] to indicate what you want to do once we do begin the move-out process.  This will help us plan for housing needs this fall.

Again, thank you for your understanding and flexibility. It is vital that the move-out process be orderly and structured to keep us all safe and healthy. We will be communicating the specifics of the move-out as soon as we firm dates. In the meantime, the deans are available to answer any more questions you may have—we are here for you and we miss you!

Sincerely,
