Move In/Out

(All students in traditional halls must vacate for spring break.)

Our nine traditional residence halls are closed during spring break.  It is the student's responsibility to locate alternate housing.  Traditional residence halls close at 6:00 p.m. Friday, March 18.  No one may remain in their hall after 6:00 p.m. Friday.  Residence must contact their resident director if unable to leave by 6:00 p.m. Friday, March 18.  The traditional residence halls reopen at noon on Sunday, March 22, 2016.  

*NOTE: Southwest Hall, Rountree Commons, Bridgeway Commons, and Cooper Living Learning Center remain open for all breaks, but you must register on-line to preserve access during break periods. 

Before leaving for spring break, please:
-Close all windows and drapes.
-Do not unplug refrigerators and/or aquarium equipment.
-Unplug all electronic devices. Computers must be turned off but do not need to be unplugged.
-Remember to turn off alarms on clocks.
-Turn off all lights.
-Lock your bedroom door.
-Remove trash, recyclables and dispose of appropriately.

*PARKING: All university parking regulations, including parking meters are enforced.  Cars left over break must be moved to Lot 25 near Williams Fieldhouse in case of possible snow removal.  Suite hall residents staying over break may park their vehicles near their residence hall.


Students who are withdrawing from or leaving the university due to study abroad, student teaching, co-op, internship, military service or graduation, no matter what time of year it is, will need to arrange a checkout appointment with their resident assistant.  The checkout appointment must be scheduled 24 hours in advance, to give the staff member ample time to gather pertinent paperwork to check a student out of their residence hall room.  This paperwork includes a change of address card for mail forwarding, room check form to assess damages, and a withdrawal form (if necessary).  All paperwork must be complete prior to the student checking out of the residence hall room, or a possible improper check out fee may be assessed.  


Second semester move in for new and transfer students begins on Thursday, January 14 at 10:00 a.m. Please check-in between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to noon, and 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. as our staff will be available during those times to assist with the check-in process.  Moving into the residence halls is an exciting part of coming to college!  We are pleased to welcome you to your on-campus living experience.While we have processes set up to make moving in as easy as we can, please remain flexible as there are a number of students excited to be moving to campus.  Please refer to your residence hall webpage and Welcome eNewsletter  for specific move-in instructions.  In addition, please read the Department of Residence Life Guide to Living On Campus to answer many of the questions you may have about what to bring to make your hall room your new home.

A student staff member will be assisting with the check-in of your room.  Take the time to thoroughly inspect your room for existing damages using the room condition form as a guide. List all existing damages upon your check-in on the room condition report. Notify your RA of any room damages immediately. The listing of room damages is important, as you will be personally responsible for any damages found at the time of your check-out from the room. Sign and date the Room Check Form upon your check-in.

The Welcome eNewsletter will be available on our website with specific details on check in, lofts, futons, bike lockers, and various other information as move-in approaches. 


Move in for new stduents begins on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016, and for continuing students beginning on Sunday, Sept.4, 2016.  More information will be posted on this website as we move closer to Welcome Weekend and Move-in for fall 2016.
