Campus services shut down, moved online for remainder of semester

Campus services at El Camino College, including counseling and tutoring, continue to be offered online as the campus remains closed to the public in observance of the county and state stay-at-home orders.

Before Gov. Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the stay-at-home order, ECC’s support services, including the Health Center, were hoped to remain open amid COVID-19 concerns to continue offering student resources.

However, administration opted to transition instructional classes along with support services online in an effort to minimize close contact between people on campus, according to an email by ECC’s Office of Marketing and Communications.

The following is a list of student services that continue to be offered online during the closure or will be closed indefinitely:

Student Health Center:

The Health Center, which offers services including therapy and a chiropractor, has been closed for the remainder of the semester but students can still call 310-660-3643 to speak with a nurse practitioner on the Nurse Advice Line.

Schauerman Library

The Schauerman Library continues to offer students tutoring and virtual research via online while the campus remains closed off to visitors.

Tutoring services are Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Zoom, an online video conference program.
