Current News

Health Precautions and Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Please continue to use the Cal State LA Health Watch website for the latest updates, especially as it relates to our campus. Following recommendations from the California Department of Public Health, Cal State LA and Housing and Residence Life are promoting social distancing by cancelling or postponing public events through May 31.
 
Housing and Residence Life will continue to follow the advisories from the University. At this time, classes are continuing as scheduled and Housing residents should continue to follow the protocols for personal hygiene and practice social distancing as a precaution for avoiding infection.
 
Housing and Residence Life has a priority to support your well-being. Please know that if there were a future need that involved moving residents, Housing has planned for and considered alternatives to ensure that students that need housing will have housing available to them. 
 
It is important that housing residents stay informed of the health precautions shared by the Student Health Center. Please follow steps to protect and reduce the risks to you and our community. You can help prevent the spread of infection by diligently washing your hands and cleaning and disinfecting surfaces that people tend to touch.
 
Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you become ill, stay in and avoid contact with others, unless you are seeking medical care. Remember that you may seek medical care from the Student Health Center. For additional information about COVID, please visit the Cal State LA Health Watch website.
 
Feeling Sick?
If you have a meal plan and are not feeling well, the Dining Commons can offer a “sick meal” exchange option for you to designate a friend to pick up your meal. Housing is currently working on an online form, but in the meantime, you may send your request directly to Stephanie Ho at Ho-Stephanie@aramark.com.  Please use your Cal State LA email to request a sick meal take-out.
 
Report a Construction Issue or Concern
As we continue our Student Housing East project scheduled to open in fall 2021, we want to remind students that if they wish to report an issue or concern related to the construction of the new housing facility, please complete our online form. Reports submitted online are immediately sent to an administrator for their review and response.

Nuts & Bolts

 
Planning To Have Guests Over?

Catch up on movies and TV shows while staying on campus. We add new movies monthly. Start watching your favorite shows and movies on our online streaming service.
