Fall 2020 Updates Forthcoming  
Due to the surge in coronavirus spread and impacts in L.A. County and nationally, LMU is exploring additional responsive measures and alternatives for the fall semester in alignment with guidance from elected officials and public health authorities. The university will provide further updates about our fall reopening plans by the end of next week.

Housing Interest Deadline Approaching on July 6; Cancellable to July 31  
For students who wish to live in university housing in the fall, please acknowledge the updated License Agreement through your 2020-21 On-Campus Housing application by July 6 at 5 p.m. By acknowledging your continued interest in housing this fall, you are assisting us with essential planning for your health and safety and the reopening of student housing. While we understand these are important decisions amid evolving circumstances, you may decide to cancel your student housing, if assigned, until July 31. All fall 2020 housing charges to your student account will be reversed and your deposit will be returned if you cancel by July 31. We appreciate your continued understanding as we evaluate options, informed by your responses.
