Support Harriet E. Richards Cooperative House residents during COVID-19 campus displacements
Dear H.E.R. alumnae, friends and family,
Boston University informed undergraduate students on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 that they are to "leave Boston University residences and return home by Sunday, March 22" because of the risks posed by the COVID-19 virus outbreak. (You can read the full announcement here:
Some H.E.R. residents have returned home already, but a few require immediate support related to transportation and identifying alternative housing in the Boston area. HERAA and the current student leaders on the H.E.R. Executive Board are actively working to understand specific resident needs. It has become clear that while BU administration is already providing some logistical resources (e.g., storage) and granting some appeals for certain extensions to stay on campus, there will be gaps and unmet needs.
If you are able to pledge support for H.E.R. residents during this time, please fill out the form below indicating what types of supports you are willing and able to provide.
HERAA will contact you with further questions or to secure your pledged support.
