Closing for the Holidays

All college housing (to include: Halls, Broad Street Apartments, and Sorority houses) will close for winter break at 8:00 PM on Tuesday, November 24th, 2020.  Students can depart from campus after their last final exam, but all students must be out by this date. Students are expected to complete the Winter Break Closing Process and vacate their rooms/college housing before the deadline to avoid receiving a late fee and/or student conduct sanctions.


*Please note, unless you are leaving the college or graduating at the end of the semester, you do not need to fully move out of your space – just bring what you need, noting there is a re-entry fee if you need to return for forgotten items. Regardless if you are only taking essentials or fully moving out, we encourage you to begin packing your things prior to finals to avoid creating additional stress.*

 

Extended Stay Information

Individuals who need permission to stay in housing, for any amount of time while we are closed for winter break, will need to fill out this linked Teams Request for Extension Form. Approval will only be granted to students with a legitimate reason to stay and you are required to upload a document that explains the details of your request (ie. staying for a sport or work would need to attach a document of your work or practice/game schedule, if there is some extraneous circumstance - please explain in a word document, etc.) 

All requests must be submitted via the Teams form with attached documentation before the deadline of 5:00p.m. on Thursday, November 12th to receive consideration.
The Associate Dean of Campus Life will email you the decision on your request after the review process (held Friday November 13th). Communicate if that timeline creates an issue - requests will not be accepted after this date. You are not approved to stay unless you have received notice. Please note, no students will be approved to be on campus December 20th – January 2nd as all operations will be closed.
