4/3/2020 - Fall 2020 Housing Lottery
To: Caltech Undergraduate Students
From: Joe Shepherd, Vice President for Student Affairs
The last three weeks have been a period of intense activity in Student Affairs with the closure of the campus, the move to online instruction, and the implementation of additional efforts to prepare our remaining community for the expected onset of COVID-19 cases on campus. Staff members from the housing, deans, and residential experience offices are still very much preoccupied with these activities, and are managing their work remotely.
Given this situation, we are postponing the undergraduate housing lottery for Fall 2020 until later this term. We will be back in touch with you on our next steps for managing the lottery after Add Day on April 17.
The Institute is planning to reopen the campus as soon as it is safe to do so, and Student Affairs is taking the necessary steps to prepare the residences for occupation by undergraduates in the fall.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this difficult time.
