Housing & Residential Living

Room Occupancy

The residential facilities open at noon two days prior to the first day of classes each term. All student residential facilities close between terms and students are expected to vacate their rooms by 2 p.m. the day after exams end. At the conclusion of the Spring Term, all students are expected to vacate the halls by 2 p.m. the day after exams except graduation seniors. We are unable to provide accommodations for dates beyond the normal closing days. Graduating seniors are expected to vacate the halls by 5 p.m. on the day of Commencement. Seniors graduating prior to spring term are expected to follow instructions from Residential Life on checking out of their room at the end of the term in which they complete their graduation requirements. Please refer to the Residential Calendar for a detailed listing of opening and closing dates.

Only first-year students who are invited to participate in New Student Orientation and upperclass students who assist with the Orientation program or participate in pre-season training for the athletic programs may arrive earlier than the dates noted on the calendar for first year and upperclass move in. There is a per diem charge for room and meals during this time which is paid by the sponsoring department. Only those students sponsored by a department will be housed on campus prior to the official opening date for upper class students.
