Will I be able to return to my residence hall to collect items during the remote-learning period?
Residence halls will be closed during the remote-learning period, except for students currently living on campus during the winter break. Students will not have card-swipe access to their residences, and may not come back to campus to collect belongings during the remote period.
Students at University Park who are not returning to on-campus housing for the spring semester can schedule a move-out day and time online via eLiving, and move-out should occur prior to Jan. 16. The move-out process is designed to minimize the number of people in each residence hall and enable Housing staff to clean and sanitize buildings and equipment between visits. A limited number of students can sign up for each time slot by building, and only one family member per student is permitted. If an individual has COVID-19, was possibly exposed to the virus, or is in quarantine, please do not come to campus. All individuals returning to campus for move-out must follow University guidelines, which include wearing a mask at all times, practicing physical distancing, and regularly washing hands. Additional details about the move-out process can be found on the Penn State Housing website.
Commonwealth Campus residential students who are not returning to their on-campus residence for spring 2021 need to contact their respective Housing and Food Services office via phone or email to schedule a day and time for move-out.
