Press release from Cal Poly Humboldt:

The University continues the cleanup and recovery process following the illegal occupation of two campus buildings and surrounding areas since Monday, April 22.

Facilities teams are working to clear Siemens Hall and Nelson Hall East of garbage, and are beginning to paint over graffiti on the exterior of vandalized buildings as University Police continue to assess the scope of the damage.

The University can confirm that University Police have arrested 32 individuals since the early morning operation by law enforcement. Of those arrested, 13 are students, 1 is a faculty member, and 18 are non-students. The operation was conducted without incident and no reported injuries.

The University continues the hard closure of campus through May 10. Areas at or beyond a barricade, or in and around Siemens Hall and Nelson Hall East, remain closed off.

The University will hold a modified in-person Commencement with local ceremonies on Saturday, May 11, 2024. More details will be announced later this week.
