Fall Semester Closing Information


Only residents are permitted in our buildings. Residence hall access is restricted to individuals who live within the building. Friends and family are asked to remain outside and can assist students once outside the building.

Our residence halls will close for fall semester at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 25.

All residents including those in the Apartments must vacate the halls by this time.

Before leaving your residence hall, you must:

  • Unplug all electrical devices (except refrigerators).
  • Close and lock all windows and doors.
  • Close and lower blinds three-quarters down.
  • Remove all perishable food and trash from your room and hall.
  • If you leave a car on campus, please park it in Lots G1, S2 and Y5 for security reasons. NOTE: Cars can be left in these lots during break, but these lots will be left unplowed and may be difficult to access if it snows. Find a parking map here.
  • Plan to take home any items you no longer need.

NOTE: a staff member will be checking each room to see that safety and maintenance conditions have been met.
