Malibu and Calabasas Campus Access Update

Posted on

Access to Malibu Campus
Law enforcement continues to restrict access to the Malibu campus, allowing through emergency support personnel. However, the EOC is working to confirm with law enforcement that Malibu campus homeowners can return to campus if they can show proof of address on the campus. Some campus homeowners have successfully made it through the roadblocks to campus, while others have been turned away. Because roadblocks are manned by many law enforcement jurisdictions, experience is inconsistent. We are working to get this resolved.

If campus community members urgently need something important retrieved from campus during the road restrictions, please call the Department of Public Safety to explain the situation. We have been able to deliver a number of items (medication, passports) to campus community members in Santa Monica and the Conejo Valley. Our ability is limited, but contact us if you have this need.

Once the roads are open to campus, the campus community is welcome to return. However, we encourage employees to work remotely because we are cleaning campus buildings and there are no normal operational services, such as trash collection. Internet lines to campus were damaged such that there is limited bandwidth on the main campus, and faculty/staff condos served by Spectrum have no internet connectivity.

Access to Calabasas Campus
The Calabasas campus is accessible and open to the Pepperdine community. While cleanup is ongoing, and normal operational services are not yet up and running, employees are welcome to retrieve items or work at the campus at their discretion. If you do not typically work at the Calabasas campus but would like to do so during this time, please contact the Calabasas campus in advance to reserve a space: 818-702-1000.
