Fall 2020 Move-In Information

Congratulations and welcome home to your on-campus student housing at Cal State East Bay! We are excited to have you join our vibrant community as engaged learners.

Given the evolving situation with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not possible to determine at this time what changes to operations in student housing and residential life may occur in Academic Year 2020-2021. Consequently, we are not offering a housing guarantee and any housing assignments that you may have received are subject to change. We will make a concerted effort to provide timely updates as we know more; please check our webpage and your email account for the latest information.

As we start to plan for the fall semester, Student Housing would like to be fully transparent about the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and how it impacts the on-campus residential experience. Out of an abundance of care and safety measures, we ask that you be part of the steps to keep our community safe and be knowledgeable about the guidelines and expectations. Though Fall Move-In begins August 12, this will begin with your pre-arrival planning for Move-In and will continue into the semester.

To prepare for your arrival, please review CSUEB’s latest information on the return to the campus plan. Below you will also find the measures in place as you prepare for Move-In and expectations at Move-In.

Pre-Move In Questionnaire - All residents will be sent the pre-questionnaire twice before their arrival to campus. The questionnaire requires completion at least one week out from arrival, and again within 24 hours of the move-in appointment. The questionnaire is to serve as a tool to help you be reflective of their current health status, and keep Student Housing & Residence Life informed so we can best support any needed accommodations for Move-In. We are dedicated to removing any barriers to help you make a successful move into the community when you are healthy and well. To read the questionnaire, you can click here.

Resident Wellness Agreement - The Resident Wellness Agreement requires completion and signature from the resident prior to arrival to campus. As a resident, the agreement informs you of the expectations of commitment to ensure your safety and well-being and that of your neighbors and fellow community members. The statement is aimed to provide support, mutual respect, and shared resources available to all residents.

Move-In Assistance - To minimize risk to the community, we ask that you bring no more than 1 guest to assist you with move-in into your building. Both you and your guest will be provided a wristband to help inform the staff of your designated staff. We understand that moving for college is a big milestone for all students, and we ask each of you to be considerate of others by limiting the time spent moving into your unit. Keep in mind that anyone else who might make the drive with you is welcome to visit the campus gardens and walk throughout the outdoor premises while you complete your move-in period.

Face coverings will be required at all times on the CSUEB premise. In accordance with public health orders and University policy, all personnel, including students, visitors and contractors are required to wear face-covering when on campus. The CDC recommends and the state of California mandates that everyone cover their mouth and nose with a cloth face-covering in the proximity of others to slow the spread of COVID-19. The face-covering is meant to protect other people in case you are infected. It is important to wear a face-covering even if you do not feel sick since people infected with COVID-19 may be asymptomatic.

Social Distancing - Student Housing will uphold social distancing precaution measures by employing signage, floor markings, 1 student/guests per elevator ride, and constant reminders throughout the Move-In process. To meet standards, we ask that you remain aware of your distance from others and adhere to the measures in place.

Move-In Safety Measures - Upon arrival at Move-In, you will notice that all staff and volunteers will be using protective equipment to ensure the safety of the community. Disinfectant wipes and sprays will be readily available to ensure prominent areas and equipment are cleaned. Likewise, you and your guest will have access to hand sanitizing stations throughout the Student Housing premise. Floor markings will be used to designate parking for contactless, curbside Housing key pick-up and maintain social distancing standards in high traffic areas. Housing will be cleaning communal areas frequently such as bathrooms, lobbies, elevators, and more. Please note, the Move-In dates have been structured around intentional traffic management to ensure social distancing measures are met within each of our residential buildings.

To help with the flow of the move-in process, we designate your move in time according to the building that you will be moving into, in addition to the floor number.

To determine your building number, you will look at the first number of your room assignment. 

Building numbers are assigned as seen below.

To prepare for a successful on-campus residential experience, we urge that you review required steps for completion prior to your move-in date, and recommended resources to assist your move. The “What to Bring” packing list will give you insights on how to pack, and the conversation starter guide provides valuable recommendations to set you and your suitemates up for a successful year in a shared living apartment.

  • Review your designated Move-in date, and set your Move-In appointment time.
  • Complete the Pre-Move In Questionnaire. The required questionnaire will be sent to your student Horizon email. You will be asked to complete this questionnaire twice prior to checking in at your designated Housing Move-In appointment.
  • Complete the Resident Wellness Agreement. The required agreement will be attached to your questionnaire and must be completed prior to your designated Housing Move-In appointment. The Resident Wellness Agreement ensures you are aware of the expectations of commitment to ensure your safety and well-being and that of your neighbors and fellow community members.
  • Review Housing Move-In procedures prior to arriving. For returning residents, please note that Fall 2020 Move-In plans will differ from past terms. Out of an abundance of care, we ask that you bring no more than 1 guest to serve as your Move-in support assistance. If you have more than one guest in attendance, we will ask that you inform your guest(s) to enjoy the campus premise while waiting for you to complete your move.

To prepare you for a successful on-campus residential experience, we urge that you review the “What to Bring” packing list and the conversation starter guide.

Move In Map

Exciting day! You are about to arrive for your Move-In appointment. All Fall Move-In activities will be located at Pioneer Heights and University Village on the Hayward campus. As you approach your respective Move-In area, please stay in your car. You will be directed to a curbside pick-up parking spot, in which you will be asked to text a phone number to inform us of your arrival. Both new and returning residents will be provided a check-in package and a newly updated Baycard (CSUEB student ID) and accompanying key to enter your apartment space. Once checked in, your vehicle will be directed to a temporary unloading area. All accompanying support guests will be asked to stay in the car, while the primary resident, with support of Move-In staff, will have the opportunity to unload and drop off items into the apartment. Upon completion of unloading, cars will be directed into designated temporary or long-term parking lot depending on the length of stay.

Out of an abundance of care, the resident and up to one personal Move-In assistance guest, will be allowed entry into their community building to assist move-in. All residents and guests will have the opportunity to engage in Move-In festivities through online social media activities and enjoy to-go brunch options at the Pioneer Kitchen, Student Housing’s primary dining facilities.
