Danielle Phillips, Director of Residential & First-Year Programs, informs the campus community about important end-of-semester housing information, including residence hall closing dates.
As the end of the semester quickly approaches, the Residential & First-Year Programs (RFYP) office would like to make you aware of important end-of-semester housing information, including residence hall closing dates.
Residence Halls for non-seniors close at 10am on Sunday, May 16. All students must move out of their residence hall room and return their key within 24 hours of their last final or 10am on Sunday, May 16 (whichever is first). Please plan accordingly.
Residence Halls for seniors close at 9pm on Monday, May 17. All seniors must move out of their residence hall room and return their key by this time. Please plan your packing and schedule accordingly to leave after your commencement ceremony and no later than 9pm on Monday, May 17.
More information about move-out and key return will be shared in the coming weeks.
Late departure requests will be reviewed and accepted on a very limited basis. If you have an extenuating circumstance that prevents you from moving out of your residence hall by the deadline noted above, you may submit a late departure request for consideration. The Late Departure Request Form can be found at CNAV/MyHousing/Applications. The deadline to submit a late departure request for consideration is Wednesday, May 12, by noon. A few important notes to remember:
- Late departures requests will only be accepted for extenuating circumstances. Please plan to depart on time if at all possible.
- As we continue to encourage students to get their COVID vaccination, it is also important to note that a scheduled COVID vaccine appointment is not cause for late departure. Please plan and schedule your vaccine appointments and travel to and from your appointments accordingly.
- If you are approved for late departure, please note that you may need to relocate to specific late departure housing, and you will be responsible for the cost of your meals during your time of late departure.
- If you are approved for late departure and will be on campus during the week of May 17 through May 21, you will have the opportunity to voluntarily test for COVID-19 at the testing site if you wish to do so. This will be done as a walk-in process only during that week, and it is not mandatory for you to do so. More information will be provided in the future that outlines the exact days and times of testing that week.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, and be well.
