Dear Residence Hall Students,


If you have already retrieved all of your items from campus AND left your key on campus, please email us (housing@yard-cam.com足球滚球比分) letting us know that, and you are able to disregard this email.


If you have retrieved all of your items from campus but still have your key, please email us (housing@yard-cam.com) letting us know that, and mail it in a padded enveloped, preferably certified, to:
Housing and Residence Life
400 East University Way
Ellensburg, WA 98926-7513


We appreciate your patience and commitment to keeping our students and communities safe and well. Housing and Residence Life has worked with Kittitas County Public Health to allow for students to return to their campus housing in scheduled time slots beginning June 15, 2020 through July 15, 2020 to pack up belongings and check out of their housing.


足球滚球比分 To keep with physical distancing practices, students will need to sign up for an available move-out timeslot online through your MyHousing portal beginning Monday, May 18, 2020 at noon. Each building has limited time slots and measures are being taken to protect you and your family as you move out. Move out time slots are available until 48 hours to the time of appointment; and you are able to change appointment times, if needed, online. Your building access will only be available at the time of your appointment.


In preparation for move out, please consult our move-out information available at www.yard-cam.com/housing and linked in the confirmation email you will receive after selecting a move out time. The Spring 2020 move out experience will have several unique restrictions in order to keep students, families, and staff safe. We are unable to issue carts to use during your check-out process; please plan accordingly. We ask that when you are preparing for campus you bring only the necessary help you will need to help you move out (maximum of three adults including the student). Please leave children, pets and extra friends at home. Once you arrive, please be mindful of other students checking out and limit to one family unit at a time in the elevator or staircase at a time. Some halls may have specific directional signs so please be aware and follow the directions to help us keep everyone safe.


When you arrive to campus you will need to do the following:
1. Pack and remove all items from your room.
2. Clean your room/suite and return to check-in condition
3. Complete an Express Check-out form (available on your hall bulletin board or on your door) and put the completed envelope on your desk with the key in it.
4. Sign the check-out list posted on your door.
5. Ensure you have checked that you have your bike, mail, kitchen items, bathroom items, and other items that may get left behind.
足球滚球比分 6. Lock your door upon exiting.


Kittitas County, like much of Washington, continues to experience positive cases of Covid-19. Please consult the Kittitas County Public Health website for more information . If additional restrictions are placed by Public Health that may change move out plans, we will notify students. We encourage students and families returning to campus to retrieve personal property to limit other travel within the county to protect your family and community.
If you cannot find a time to sign up or if you need an exception due to not being able to return, please email housing@yard-cam.com and let us know your situation. We know this experience comes with many unique challenges and we will do everything possible within health restrictions to be flexible.
We know that moving out is a rite of passage for first year students, and we are doing all we can to make sure you have the best experience you can under these circumstances. Thank you for your patience during this time.


Sincerely,
足球滚球比分 Housing and Residence Life

Updated: May 7, 2020

As the situation regarding the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus continues to develop in Washington state, Housing and Residence Life and Dining Services wants to assure you that we are well prepared to respond appropriately to mitigate its effects, placing a priority on protecting the health and well-being of our residents.

 

On Friday, March 20, 2020, a letter was sent to all campus residents:


“Dear Wildcat Residential Students,

足球滚球比分As you know, we all are adapting each day to new imperatives designed to slow the spread of COVID-19. CWU already has cancelled all in-person classes and labs; dining services are only providing food-to-go. In-person, university-sponsored events are cancelled. All buildings on the Ellensburg Campus will be closed to the public.

On the night of March 19, 2020, the Kittitas County Public Health Department issued an official Public Health Order directing CWU to strongly encourage students, ”whether they live on or off campus, to stay in place. If students have returned to their permanent residence, they should remain there” while attending spring quarter virtually. It is vital that you respect this Public Health Order and help contain the virus that is spreading so quickly everywhere:
We thank you for your patience as we work to clarify the ever-changing information and related details surrounding the University's response to COVID-19.

Per the Kittitas County Health Order, students are strongly encouraged, whether they live on or off campus, to stay in place.

If students are currently living on campus, they should remain staying in on campus housing.

  • Our campus housing and dining remain available to students who are currently on campus and continue to reside here. Dining will be available in a food to go style per the health directive. Information specific to dining will be posted on the website: https://www.yard-cam.com/dining/
  • Early in spring quarter, we may determine the need to relocate students who are continuing to live on campus from their current residence hall room to another building. This is so we can ensure we provide our best service to those students who remain and further the goal of social distancing by providing all residents with a room that has a private bathroom, if possible. If you are relocated, your housing rate will not increase, even if the room you move to is normally charged at a higher rate.
  • If students are currently away from the CWU Ellensburg campus, per our Health Directors warning, they should remain where they are currently residing and attend Spring Quarter virtually.
  • Because we do not want to penalize you financially based upon circumstances you couldn’t foresee, we will not charge you for early termination and all spring quarter housing and dining will be refunded.
  • Your property will stay in place in the current state you left it. We will change the lock to your space to restrict access and until the Health Department releases the current restrictions.
  • CWU staff will verify occupancy in each room/apartment and enforce health and safety standards such as removing perishable items.
  • We are in the process of turning off access to residence hall entrances*
  • Housing and Residence Life will work in the coming days to determine a plan within the Kittitas County Health Order to help residents reclaim personal items. We will send out an email to all residents with this protocol when it is complete.

We have asked all residents to complete a specific form online through their MyHousing account immediately to tell us exactly where they are residing. If you do not indicate your status, we will assume you are no longer on campus and we will secure your space by changing the locks and your entrance access. If your roommate is staying in the room by order of the notice they will not be permitted to allow you access so please do not try to access your property in that manner.

We know you may have other questions about this announcement and what Housing and Residence Life is doing for students who are concerned about their on campus housing. Please contact us at housing@yard-cam.com or 509.963.1831 (Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm). As we move forward, please direct questions you may have to housing@yard-cam.com. We have established an enhanced response team to keep track of questions and respond to emails in a timely fashion. We will also make this information, and any future changes, easily available online at the website: yard-cam.com/housing.

In addition, if you have already finalized this fall’s 2020 plans to live on campus, these plans will not be impacted. We know that you enjoy living on campus and we are looking forward to you returning to CWU. If by chance you have not finalized your fall 2020 (academic year 2020-2021) housing we are here to help you make that happen.

We appreciate your patience during these unprecedented circumstances. We understand this information is difficult for many of you to hear as we know CWU is your home away from home, but we hope you understand that these measures are in the interest of prioritizing the health and safety of our community. We wish you and yours the very best and look forward to your return to CWU.

足球滚球比分Please take care wildcats and stay well.

Tricia Rabel
Executive Director of Housing and Residence Life
*Pending Public Health order and guidelines, subject to change.”


We know there are questions about Spring 2020 Housing and Dining. The following information was developed in order to help make things clear for our residential students.


What is the Kittitas County Health Order and what does it mean for CWU?
A Kittitas County Health Order was issued March 20, 2020, for Central Washington University. You can read more about that order .


Are students required to tell Housing where they are currently residing?
足球滚球比分 Yes. In order to provide a safe and secure residence for students, we need to know each student's current residence. As we plan for Spring Quarter, we need every student to complete a specific form online through their MyHousing account immediately to tell us exactly where you are residing. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you are no longer on campus and we will secure your space by changing the locks and your entrance access.


I didn't respond to the Housing request by March 23rd to state where I was residing. Does this mean I am locked out?
Per the Kittitas County Health Orders and Governor Inslee's "stay home, stay healthy" statewide order, we are not permitted to allow students back on campus who did not disclose their status as being in Ellensburg. If you believe you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact housing@yard-cam.com.


• What happens to my personal items in my room? What if I need something?
If you have property in your residence hall room or apartment, your property will stay in place in the state you left it. Locks have been changed to restrict access until the county and statewide orders lifts.

Due to the statewide and county order, we are not able to allow individuals to return to campus and pick up personal property. If you believe you have an emergent need for an item in your space—for example, medications you are not able to obtain a replacement prescription—please contact Housing and Residence life at housing@yard-cam.com足球滚球比分. We will consider requests on a case-by-case basis, and retrieve the item with your written permission. In certain cases, we may be able to ship the item to you.


 My roommate did not indicate their status and would like to return to campus and retrieve items. Can I let them into our space?
If you're staying in your apartment/residence hall room, you are not permitted to grant access to your roommate. Please do not allow access to your roommate in this manner, as it is a violation of Kittitas County Health Department orders.


I am currently in Ellensburg and I understand I will need to stay in Ellensburg. Will there be campus resources to support me on campus?
Our campus housing and dining services remain available to students who are currently on campus and continue to reside here. Dining service will be available in a food-to-go style, per the health department directive. Information specific to dining will be posted on the website.


• Will I be able to stay in my current space?
Early in the spring quarter, we may determine the need to relocate students who are continuing to live on campus from their current residence hall room to another building. This is so we can ensure we provide our best service to those students who remain, and further the goal of social distancing by providing all residents with a room that has a private bathroom, if possible. If you are relocated, your housing rate will not increase, even if the room you move to is normally charged at a higher rate.


What can I expect in terms of staffing, events, and programming?
足球滚球比分 Housing units will be staffed 24/7 the same as other times of the year. Staff will be available to help with lockouts, support you during this uncertain time, and connect with you. Those interactions will be more likely to occur virtually via phone or video chat. Events and in person programs are not able to take place at this time per the Kittitas County Health Order.


I am a residence hall student on the Ellensburg campus. Will my meal plan be the same?
Yes! As a residence hall student, your meal plan went into effect Monday, March 23, and be available to you throughout Spring Quarter. Students who wish to change their meal plan can do so until April 13 through their MyHousing account. Dining halls may have different hours and options. For more information on Dining Services, please visit the website.


Remaining Winter Quarter Dining Dollars (for students no longer residing on the CWU campus)
Dining has made an exception for the Winter 2020 meal plan balances, which allows qualifying students to use their leftover dollars into the next academic year. They have contacted via email all of the students to whom this exception applies. For more information please visit the CWU Dining Services Page at: : https://www.yard-cam.com/dining/residential-meal-plans. For any questions, please contact CWU Dining Services at dining@yard-cam.com or 509-963-1591. 

I was a new student for the 2019-2020 academic year and was not able to complete my First Year Live-on Requirement due to the order enacted by the Kittitas County Health Department and the state order by Governor Inslee, "Stay Home, Stay Healthy." Will I need to continue to live in a residence hall during any part of the 2020-2021 academic year to fulfill this requirement? 
足球滚球比分 If you are an enrolled CWU student for Spring 2020 and fulfilled one full year of college credits post high school, you are eligible to live off campus for the 2020-2021 school year.

March 20, 2020: Kittitas County Public Health Department released a involving CWU.
