This letter from the Dean of Students was sent via email to all residential students in university owned/managed housing to provide updated move out guidance following the extension of Governor Jay Inslee’s March 23 “Stay Home – Stay Healthy” Executive Order 20-25, which was announced on May 1, 2020. The “stay-at-home” provision, which directs all Washington State residents to stay in their homes with the exception of essential travel, is now in effect through Sunday, May 31. Because of the stay-at-home restrictions now in place, the university has extended the Winter Quarter move out deadline to Saturday, June 16 at 5:00pm.
