All residents are expected to check out with their RA and leave campus during these periods. Fines and charges may be assessed if the student does not check out or leave. If you expect to fly to your holiday destination, you are advised to make reservations early in the semester so as to avoid departure delay.
Requests to stay late or return early from breaks must be submitted to the Student Life Office at least 2 weeks prior to the break. Residents with permission will be charged a room rate of at least $50 per night for staying late or returning early from breaks.
Residents with exceptional circumstances should bring their concerns to the Student Life Office.
Vacation checkout procedures will be posted in your living area prior to Thanksgiving, Christmas/semester and spring vacations. Residence halls are closed during these holidays and food service is not available.
