east-campus-sunset

The residence halls close for winter break at the end of the semester. Here's what you need to know about checking out of your room for the fall.

If you are leaving and coming back in the spring

Make an appointment with your community advisor to check out of your room within 24 hours of your last final. You can leave your things in your room and take your key with you, but you won't be able to return until Friday, Jan. 11 unless you've signed up for winter break housing.

If you have a reason to request a late stay past your last final (for example, if you're graduating), you can make a late stay request.

If you are graduating or not returning in the spring

Request a contract release as soon as possible. Make an appointment with your community advisor to check out of your room within 24 hours of your last final, and remove all of your belongings from your room before the appointment.

If you have a reason to request a late stay past your last final (for example, if you're graduating), you can make a late stay request.

If you are staying here during winter break You can stay only if you live in Neptune West or New Hall East and you've signed up for winter break housing. If you're living in Northern View now and also in the spring, your contract already lets you stay through the break. If you don't live in one of these halls, winter break housing availability is limited and not guaranteed.
If you are changing rooms between semesters Make an appointment with your community advisor to check out of your room within 24 hours of your last final, and remove all of your belongings from your room before the appointment. You will move into your new room in January. If you have questions about your move out or move in dates, talk to your hall's chief clerk.
