Early Arrivals

Students may only arrive early to campus if they are sponsored by a staff or faculty member (i.e. athletes, Resident Assistants, approved Greek students, etc.). You will need to coordinate your move in with the staff or faculty member arranging for you to arrive early.

Break Schedule

The residence halls will be closed for Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break unless students are approved to stay. Students must request permission to stay on campus with the Director of Residence Life by submitting the necessary form prior to each break. Please make travel and work arrangements as needed to meet these deadlines.

If students are graduating, hold an on-campus job keeping them through graduation, are on an approved international student shuttle, or are an athlete staying with the team, students will be approved to stay late. All other students must check out of their rooms within 24 hours of their last final, or by the designated times above, whichever comes first. Approval to stay late for any reason other than those listed above must be granted by the Director of Residence Life by submitting the appropriate form prior to move-out. Students are not typically approved to stay late and need to make travel and work arrangements accordingly.
