Student resources on campus

With the start of the spring 2022 semester, California State University Polytechnic, Humboldt has seen more students and in-person classes on campus than in the last two years. A year ago at this time, according to the Institutional Research, Analytics and Reporting, campus was only seeing 7.81% of face-to-face classes. Right now, the IRAR has reported that 58.59% of classes are face-to-face. 

There are now 1,563 students living on campus as compared to fall 2021 with 1,440 students living on campus. Many student resource offices have moved locations on campus and/or have changed hours and availability. For many freshman and transfer students who are new to campus, even for many returning students, this may be their first time physically on campus in over a year. We want to make sure that students are aware of where all student resources are located.
