Winter Break: Residence halls are closed during Winter Break. Students requiring housing during this break may apply for break housing. Applications are due by the Friday two weeks prior to the break. There is a $250 charge for break housing and students may be asked to move permanently to a different residence hall. Restricted guest hours are in effect during breaks. No meals are provided during this time.
Thanksgiving Break: Residence halls remain open.
End of Semester: At the end of each semester, students are required to leave within 24 hours of their last final exam with Saturday at noon being the latest a student can stay. Complete the form below if you need an exception to this policy.
Early Move In: At the beginning of the Fall semester, students needing to arrive earlier than the official opening day for the residence halls must apply for break housing. Due to building use prior to move in, early move in is not guaranteed. If approved, there is a charge for early arrival. Residents may be temporarily located in an assignment until residence halls officially open or their academic year room becomes available. Restricted guest hours are in effect prior to official opening of residence halls.
