Going Home for Winter Break

It’s hard to believe that the semester is ending! Close down typically brings many questions for students and their families. The following is information to have on-hand for planning purposes.

Students are required to check out of the Residence Halls within 24 hours of their last final exam or by Saturday December 15, 2012 at 12:00pm - whichever comes first.

Students are not required to take all their personal items home during break; however, students are encouraged to take home expensive electronics as well as any personal items that they may need between the semesters because - for security reasons - the locks on the halls will be changed and no one will be given access until the Spring 2013 semester begins.

The Residence Halls will open for all returning students on Sunday January 20, 2013 beginning at 10:00am. We will not be able to allow students to arrive earlier than this, so it is important that students and their families plan accordingly.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Carl Crowe, Associate Dean of Students and Director of Residence Life at

Have a great break!
