Closing and End of Year Information

Residence Halls close: Friday, May 10, 2019

With the exception of graduating seniors and those moving to summer housing, residents need to check out on or before halls close.  All students are to check out of their hall within 24 hours of their last final.

Need to stay later? Students should watch their email for information on how to request a late stay.

Residents will need to pack their room, clean and be ready to leave at the time of checkout. Plan ahead, start bringing home winter items, and bring large items home the weekends prior to closing. Be prepared, so that during finals week, students can focus on their tests and papers having already packed up and brought most of their items home!
