News & Announcements

Here are the latest announcements from Tuesday, January 16, 2018:

Nuts & Bolts

2018–2019 Housing Application Now Available Online
The application to live on campus for the 2018–2019 academic year is now available on our website. Changes to the new Housing Selection Process include: returning residents are encouraged to apply, the application includes a $500 initial payment, upper division students will not be blocked from applying for housing and housing during winter break is not included in your agreement. Please familiarize yourself with the process on our website and adhere to deadlines to avoid being placed on a waitlist.

Parking Permit Information
Residential parking permits must be purchased in person from the Parking and Transportation Center only. Online sales are not applicable for residents (even though the P&T Center announcements indicate you can order your parking permit online).  If you currently have a residential parking pass, it expires Jan. 21. If you don’t, you can purchase the spring 2018 parking permit now from the P&T Center and you can use it now. Avoid the long lines and a parking citation by purchasing your permit this week before the spring semester begins.

Don't Tamper With Smoke Detectors
Just a reminder that tampering with smoke detectors is a contract violation.  Please watch our Fire Safety and Evacuations video for additional information.

Don’t Leave Valuables In Your Car
Leaving items in your car can make you a target for theft. If you must leave items, put them in your trunk before you get to your next destination or secure them in your locked glove compartment. You can have your valuables engraved by visiting the Public Safety Office located on campus. Keep your car safer by parking in busy, well-lit areas, closing your windows, locking your doors and turning on your alarm or anti-theft device. If something is stolen out of your car or you see suspicious activity while on campus, call Campus Police at 323–343–3700. If you are off-campus, dial 911.

New Students Moving In 1/19

Please welcome the new students who will be moving in to empty spaces starting Jan. 19. Remember to keep your apartment clean and make room for them in the kitchen and bathroom.

Mail Room Hours

The Mail Room will operate on a reduced schedule during winter break: 9 a.m.–5 p.m. (instead of 5:30) Monday through Friday, and closed on Saturdays. We will return to regular hours starting Jan.22.

The Dining Commons and the Community Center, which houses the Game Room and Computer Lab, are closed until Jan. 21. The CC will return to regular hours starting Jan. 22: Monday–Friday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The Dining Commons operating hours can be found on our website.

Money Matters
