Retrieving Belongings from Student Residences

April 29, 2020

Greetings from the Office of Residential Life,

We are pleased to announce that we have developed a process to allow students to return to campus to retrieve personal belongings in a safe and efficient way. For the health and safety of all involved, we have established the following guidelines for the property retrieval process.

  • The property retrieval process will begin Monday, May 4, at 8:00 a.m..
  • Each available day for property retrieval will be broken into three 4 hour blocks:
    • 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
    • 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
    • 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.
  • Students may sign up for the time block that is most convenient for them by using this property retrieval sign up link.
  • To help observe social distancing guidelines, the number of students allowed on campus during each time block will be limited.
  • Students may only bring two helpers to assist them in retrieving their belongings.
  • Students and helpers who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms may not come to campus.
  • Students and helpers must wear a face covering and gloves at all times while on campus.
  • Roommates may not come together to retrieve their belongings. Please speak with your roommate(s) before signing up for an appointment to avoid signing up for the same date and time.

All students must sign up for an appointment in order to retrieve their items. Students who have signed up for a time will receive a confirmation with additional information about the process. Students should call the Residential Life Office once they arrive on campus. A staff member will meet students and helpers at their building to confirm that they have masks and gloves, and to let them into their building and room.

Those with questions about this process should email . We will try to respond to your email within 48 hours, but we ask for your patience as we begin this undertaking. Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this process.

Thank you,

Office of Residential Life
