Housing Assignment and Moving

Message sent September 16, 2020

Danielle Phillips, Director of Residential and First-Year Programs, provided students in the residential cohort with information on moving, new housing assignments, and dining services.

Dear Approved Residential Cohort Students,

I hope that this email finds you well, and that you’re adjusting to our smaller on-campus community. This email will provide you with helpful information related to our new housing assignments and the process for moving into those new assignments.

Housing Assignment and Moving

Housing Assignment

The Office of Residential & First-Year Programs (RFYP) has assigned all students remaining in residence to a single bedroom. Your new housing assignment can be found by going to CNAV/MyHousing.

As a reminder, all students in the approved residential cohort will live in single bedrooms for the remainder of the semester in order to de-densify the halls and to support the needs of the potential positive COVID-19 cases and associated contacts that may arise. Some students will remain in their current rooms, but some will need to relocate. Facilities Services has worked hard during this transition period to clean and prepare the rooms for this transition.

Any student with an existing approved medically-necessary housing accommodation (i.e. kitchen access, air conditioner, etc.) will be placed in a housing assignment that meets the approved accommodation.


Students who are required to move to a new housing assignment should pick up their new key(s) at the RFYP office (CUB 250) during one of the following time frames:

  • Thursday, September 17, from 3 - 5 p.m.
  • Friday, September 18, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

If you are relocating to the Hotel Gettysburg, please arrive at the hotel between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. so that the front desk staff can greet you and provide information upon your arrival.

If you are observing Rosh Hashanah and need to make alternative arrangements for your move, please email residencelife@gettysburg.edu by Thursday, September 17, at 4 p.m., and we will work with you to find a different day for you to move to your new room.

Should you need them, supplies for packing will be available in the CUB at the base of the main staircase from the Bullet Hole. If you need assistance transporting your belongings a greater distance on campus, Transportation Services will have drivers available to transport items. You must sign up ahead of time for this service. Click here to sign up for transportation assistance. Please have your items ready to move at your assigned time. Depending on the demand, students may experience a wait time.

When you arrive in your new assignment, you should review the space for any concerns/damages and submit a work order request if needed. Please complete a room inventory condition form via CNAV/MyHousing upon arriving at your new space as well.


Dining Grab and Go

Grab and go meals will continue as an option for the remainder of the Fall semester. In addition, starting Monday, September 21, first-year students can exchange up to 7 meals per week at the Bullet Hole.

Beginning today, the Dining Hall and Bullet Hole seating will be available following all posted mitigation strategies, including masks/face coverings and physical distancing. The ONLY exception to wearing a mask is when you are actually eating.

Please continue to wear masks and keep at least six feet of physical distance. These strategies are critical in our efforts to remain in residence moving forward for the rest of the semester.

If you have questions, please contact residencelife@gettysburg.edu or 717.337.6901.

Thank you, and be well.

Director of Residential and First-Year Programs
