PUEBLO — Update: 5/14/20 7:30 p.m.

CSU Pueblo Residence Life and Housing have asked students to return home if possible, but are not forcing any students out of campus housing as a result of being unable to return home or due to financial hardship.

CSU Pueblo Residence Life and Housing along with Dean of Student Affaris, Marie Humphrey, Ph.D, and Center for International Programs and Inclusive Excellence (The Center) have worked to provide our international students and domestic students alike, external scholarships and provide emergency aid.

Additionally, many of our international students are living and working on campus over the summer to help pay their living expenses at this time
