Checking In and Out

Housing Reapplication

Checking In

Students will receive "Opening Day" instructions with parking information, tips on what to bring and arrival times with their assignment notice during the first week of August (early January for new Spring students). Students may not move into their residence hall prior to each semester's official Opening Day.

Upon arrival in the Fall semester, students will check-in at their specific residence hall's reception area. Residential Life and Housing Services staff will be available to greet students and provide them with important check-in materials including keys, room inventory reports, area attractions, along with residence hall policies, procedures and amenities.

Checking Out

Students will be provided with detailed check-out instructions towards the end of their license period. Please remember that the Housing License is for both the Fall and Spring Terms. Residents must check-out of their assigned room 24 hours after their last final exam unless they are participating in commencement. Residents who vacate their assignment prior to the end of the license period are still responsible for the terms and conditions of the license.

Residence Halls will remain open during the Winter and Spring recesses. Students who have concurrent housing during the summer (Spring to Summer and/or Summer to Fall) will not be required to leave University Housing between these summer transition periods.
