Residence halls remain open for students during the Fall, Thanksgiving, and Spring Breaks. Residents must register to stay during these breaks. Students may not stay in residence halls during the winter and summer vacation periods unless express, written permission is given by the Office of Residential Life. Students do not have access to the halls or their rooms during these periods, and should take care to bring all needed items (e.g. credit cards, passport, etc.) with them when traveling over break periods.
To check out, residents should schedule an appointment with their Proctor to review their room for damages together before departing; once this step is completed, residents should come to the Residential Life Office in the BC to return their key or indicate that they lost their key (the fee for a replacement key is $50). Any new damages or other violations found upon review of a room will result in associated fines being applied to the resident's student account. One of the most common fines is Failure to Check-Out ($50); this can be avoided by communicating with your Proctors or Area Coordinator to either return a key or report a lost key.
Departing Campus and Commencement Week Approval
Members of the first-year (C'23) and second-year (C'22) classes must move out of their residence hall rooms by 12 p.m. (noon) on Thursday, May 7, 2020. Members of the first-year and second-year classes may appeal to stay past Thursday, May 7, only if they are the family member of a graduate or are otherwise participating in the commencement program (e.g. a member of the University Choir). All students (even those with approved appeals to stay past May 7) must move out of their residence hall rooms and depart campus by 12 p.m. (noon) on Monday, May 11, 2020.
Returning to Campus
Returning students may move in on Monday, August 24, 2020 for the Advent 2020 semester. Please plan accordingly. Due to New Student Orientation and residence hall preparation needs, we are unable to approve any early arrivals outside of pre-approved University programs (e.g. NCAA athletics, PRE, and Residential Life staff training).
