As students prepare to wrap up the Fall semester, it is essential to know the process for Winter Break closing. All residents are expected to vacate their residence hall within 24 hours after their last final exam. All residence halls will close at 12 p.m. (noon) on Sunday, December 10, 2023, and will begin to reopen for continuing students on Friday, January 5, 2024.
Students may leave their personal belongings in the room; however, students should take anything they might need during the break (computers, phone chargers, medications, etc.). Students will not have access to the residence halls during the break period. Students should follow the steps below to ensure their room is properly prepared. Students should refer to the spring move-in schedule for information on when their respective halls and floors are permitted to return to campus.
Students returning for the Spring semester are not required to turn in their keys prior to leaving for winter break. Students not returning for the Spring semester must contact their residence hall staff to complete a traditional checkout.
