Commuter and Off-Campus Life: Suspending Locker Item Pick Up Dates + Introducing Virtual Programs
Commuter and Off-Campus Life: Suspending Locker Item Pick Up Dates Introducing Virtual Programs
Hello Commuters –
The Commuter and Off-Campus Life team would like to extend our well wishes to all who are navigating the many changes that are happening at the local, state, and federal level. This is a message to share some key updates related to our services/facility and virtual programs our team has developed over the past few days. Please read on for more details:
Locker Item Pick Up Dates Suspended
In an earlier message, we had originally set designated pick up dates for students who had items remaining in their lockers. However, in light of the recent state-wide shelter in place directive, we are suspending all pick up dates until further notice.
Our hope is to provide new pick up dates once this directive has been lifted. Should you have a concern regarding any items that remain in your Commuter Student Resource Center locker, know that we will honor our commitment to maintain all items until June 1st to give you ample time to retrieve your belongings after the end of the semester.
