A number of changes are taking place at Antelope Valley College as a result of the pandemic. The cafeteria and the Subway restaurant will be inaccessible during the summer term. Students may go to the campus bookstore to purchase “grab-and-go” food items.

The computer labs will allow limited in-person availability during the summer term. Mesquite Hall MH-317 (previously BE building) and Uhazy Hall UH-272 will be open with limited capacity aligned with LA County health department guidelines.

In-person classes will follow state and county health guidelines (including but not limited to social distancing and wearing a mask).

Current and prospective students with special circumstances may request in-person services by appointment only. Call (661) 722-6300 for more details.
