2018-2019 Residential Life Calendar

Below is a listing of Campus Residence openings and closings for the 2017-18 Academic Year.

Pay close attention to opening and closing dates and times so that you can make appropriate travel arrangements for your arrivals, breaks and end of semester/year check-outs.

  • If you find that you need to be on campus before any scheduled "check-in" period, during a scheduled "break" or "closing" or after "check-out" you will be required to submit an online form to register or request permission to remain on campus.
  • Additional $35.00 per day housing charges will be posted to your student account when early arrival (beginning of fall or spring semester), winter break or late departure (end of fall or spring semester) housing is requested and approved for personal reasons.
  • Information regarding the online registration for early arrival, break or late departure housing will be disseminated via campus email and via postings both in your campus residence and on the Res Life website prior to each official opening, break or closing.
