Students living in Cal Poly Humboldt’s parking lot received a knock on their vehicles and were told by members of administration that they will be enforcing their parking regulation about sleeping overnight in the parking lots. A campus wide email on Oct. 25 said this would be enforced “without exception.”
“They said it would take about two weeks for an email to go out, then they sent it out two hours after we talked to them,” said Jaikyn Russell, a freshman living in his van.
The email said the decision to remove the students came from calls from “...concerned members of the campus community expressing fear and frustration about the situation.”
Students were told in person and by email that they could use emergency on campus housing for up to 21 days, move to RV parks and campsites or enroll in Arcata House Partnership’s safe parking program.
