Spring Housing Move-In Postponed for Incoming Students

This post was updated on

On Monday, January 25, California Governor Gavin Newsom rescinded the recent statewide stay-at-home order, however, in response to directives from the Orange County Healthcare Agency (OCHCA), move-in for the Spring 2021 Semester has been delayed. Students received a form via their Chapman Student email to let the Office of Residence Life and First Year Experience (RLFYE) know when they plan on moving in.

In this form, students will have the option to:

  • Move in as planned during the week of January 25th.
  • Delay their move-in to the Week of February 15th.
  • Delay their move-in until after the Week of February 15th.
  • Cancel their assignment for the Spring Semester.

All impacted students need to complete the form – found in their inbox – as soon as possible; even if they have already contacted RLFYE regarding their move-in plans.

Due to the high volume of e-mails our office received over the weekend, RLFYE is unable to respond to individual messages about student’s intended move-in plans. RLFYE will respond to questions that are not covered here though.

For more information about COVID-19 testing protocol and additional details about what move-in will look like during the week of January 25th or February 15th, please visit the Housing Updates page on the RLFYE website. Students will also receive community-specific move-in information from their building manager before the end of the week.

As a reminder, the spring semester will begin remotely.

Our department, Student Engagement and other offices around the University, are providing a wide array of virtual activities for students but, at this time, we have no plans for in-person gatherings until these events are permitted.
