SAN FRANCISCO-Calif, -Residents of San Francisco State University’s housing feared eviction after they received a concerning email from The Housing Office last week directing them to leave campus housing, amid campus closure prompted by the recent Coronavirus outbreak. 

The Lease Agreement that all on campus residents had to sign stated that “not less than a fourteen‐(14) day written notice in the event of an occurrence”. The school only gave students three days to vacate their dorms.

In a follow up email, Executive Director of Housing Services Jeny Patino and Director of Residential Life David Rourke apologized to students and made it clear that student housing would remain open during the campus closure.
