Opening and Closings


 Fall and Spring Semester Opening:

The halls will open prior to the first day of classes. New students will receive information about their specific check-in day prior to the start of each semester. Returning students may check in either of the two days (Saturday & Sunday) before classes begin in the fall.

University Breaks

For Thanksgiving, the residence halls close at 10:00 a.m. the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and reopen at 1:00 p.m. the day preceding the resumption of classes. For Spring Break, the residence halls close at 6:00 p.m. on the last day of classes prior to the break, and reopen at 1:00 p.m. the day preceding the resumption of classes. These times are subject to change and will be posted in each hall. Very limited space is available for residents to stay in a designated residence hall during University break periods. There will be a fee for students who are approved to receive break housing and no meals are offered during break periods.

Fall and Spring Semester Closing

You are required to properly check out of your room no more than 24 hours after your last final examination. All housing facilities will generally close at 6:00 p.m. on the last day of the final exam period. Look for postings and fliers with specific information.
