Arrival of New Housemates
New residents are moving in to empty spaces in some apartments. Thanks for keeping your apartment clean and make room for them in the kitchen and bathroom.

Need To Connect A Console, Smart TVs or Media Players To Wi-Fi?
To connect your interactive media to Wi-Fi, you will need to submit a Network Console Registration Request Form to ITS. Please have the following information handy and go to: www.calstatela.edu/its/console

  • CIN
  • Phone Number
  • Apartment Location: Phase # or GEA, Room #
  • Console//device wireless MAC address (all lowercase, no colons)

Please allow 1-2 days for the request to be processed. Once done, you will receive a second email with the access code. If you have questions, please call ITS at 1-323-343-6170

Mail Room Hours
The Mail Room hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

Parking Permit Information
Residential parking permits must be purchased in person from the Parking and Transportation Center only. Online sales are not applicable for residents (even though the P&T Center announcements indicate you can order your parking permit online).  If you currently have a residential parking pass, it expires Jan. 21. If you don’t, you can purchase the spring 2018 parking permit now from the P&T Center and you can use it now. Avoid the long lines and a parking citation by purchasing your permit this week before the spring semester begins.

Don’t Leave Valuables In Your Car
Leaving items in your car can make you a target for theft. If you must leave items, put them in your trunk before you get to your next destination or secure them in your locked glove compartment. You can have your valuables engraved by visiting the Public Safety Office located on campus. Keep your car safer by parking in busy, well-lit areas, closing your windows, locking your doors and turning on your alarm or anti-theft device. If something is stolen out of your car or you see suspicious activity while on campus, call Campus Police at 323–343–3700. If you are off-campus, dial 911.

Don't Tamper With Smoke Detectors
Just a reminder that tampering with smoke detectors is a contract violation.  Please watch our Fire Safety and Evacuations video for additional information.
 

Don’t Throw Your Trash In The Laundry Rooms
Please throw your trash in the containers located nearest to your apartment, not in the Laundry Rooms. Trash containers are located on the outside perimeter of the access road and surrounding the Phase II complex as well as in the northwest corner of the GEA parking lot.
