Thu, Mar 19, 2020Governor Wolf official order

Dear On-Campus Student and Student Supporter,

A few hours ago Governor Wolf ordered all non-life sustaining businesses in Pennsylvania to close. Bloomsburg University is already closed for instruction but has been conducting on-campus student move-out over the last several days. We have been authorized to continue the student move-out process to help prepare students to move to 100% online instruction.

If you do not feel well, please do not come to campus. If you and those assisting you in move-out feel well, practice social distancing and take appropriate precautions to limit contact with other people. This may mean waiting for an elevator to be empty before entering it or taking the stairs; ensuring there is plenty of space between people. Use a barrier to press elevator buttons and open doors and keep that barrier away from your face. Wash hands frequently and avoid touching your face with your hands.

The move-out process will end on Saturday, March 21 at 7:00P. We will not be opening on-campus residences after that day to comply with the Governor’s directive. When authorized, Residence Life will communicate limited days and times in the coming weeks where any personal items left behind may be retrieved before the middle of May. We will not open residences until authorized or on request. Please plan accordingly.

Wishing you and your family good health and a productive remainder of the semester.

Sincerely,

James McCormack
Interim Vice President
Division of Student Affairs

Please be aware that we are responding to updates and mandates as they come and any changes will be posted as soon as possible. We are operating with very limited staff and appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Important information items

  • Any student who may have an underlying health issue, or is not feeling well, can contact the Office of Residence Life at buhouse@bloomu.edu to make alternative arrangements.
  • A limited number of moving bins will be available. If you have a hand truck, it may be helpful to bring it to campus.
  • Vehicles should be parked in parking lots near your residence hall. When you are ready to leave, you may pull your vehicle in front of the buildings to load.
  • Please follow directional signage when you arrive on campus.
  • There will be a limited number of staff available for questions and concerns.
