Closing Your Residence For Break

All residents (halls, apartments, and Commons) are responsible for completing the following (however, the last resident to leave MUST confirm completion):

  • Store all open and perishable food in sealed plastic or metal containers.
  • Clean your residence and empty your trash.
  • Unplug all electrical items except refrigerators and fish tanks. In other words, there should be nothing other than a refrigerator and fish tank plugged into any outlet in a residence. Power strips must also be unplugged from the wall outlets. The College does not take responsibility for plants or fish left over any break.
  • Turn off all lights.
  • Close and lock all windows.
  • Pull the window shade(s) down halfway.
  • Lock your door. Be sure you have your ID and room key. 
  • Move your vehicle to a student parking lot if you plan to leave it on campus during the break.

All housing (except those who are registered to remain on campus) is checked by staff to insure that proper check-out procedures have been followed. Failure to follow closing procedures will result in an Improper Closing fine of $15 (minimum).
