Dear Residential Students,
In early April, I promised that I would follow up with additional information on how to retrieve your belongings from the residence halls. I appreciate your patience and understanding while we have worked to develop a safe and efficient plan.
Due to the extension of Governor Wolf’s stay-at-home order in Pennsylvania through at least Friday, May 8—and possibly longer for the Philadelphia region—as well as the continuing social distancing guidelines in place, I have outlined three options below for retrieving your belongings from campus and the timing for each option.
Regardless of which option you select, you must inform the University of your plans via the “Student Move-Out Form” found on the Student Housing website no later than Friday, May 8, so that we can facilitate access to your room at the appropriate time.
You can return to campus to retrieve your items on your own once we notify you that the stay-at-home order impacting the Villanova area has been lifted.
You can contract with a packing, moving and storage company to retrieve your belongings and store or ship them for you beginning Friday, May 1.
You can return to campus to retrieve your items curbside at Villanova after contracting with a packing, moving and storage company to gather your belongings beginning Saturday, May 16.
I want to reiterate that, regardless of your choice, you must complete the “Student Move-Out Form” found on the Student Housing website no later than Friday, May 8. If you have any questions about this process or the options available to you, please don’t hesitate to email Residence Life at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your cooperation, and we look forward to assisting you.
