There are four breaks during the school year when the residence halls close. Fall break occurs during October, Thanksgiving break in late November, winter break in December, and spring break in March. Students are asked to leave campus during this time, with the exception of international and out-of-state students.
Students may have guests 17 years of age and older. Guests must check in at the residence hall office upon arrival and may only visit for three days within a 10-day period. Any guest under the age of 17 must be a family member and prior written permission must be provided by the parent/guardian of the minor. The Office of Residential Life also encourages conversations to occur with roommates before any guest arrives.
USPS Mail is delivered Monday-Friday to each residence hall by 1 p.m. UPS and Fed Ex deliveries are picked up at the Document Center by the student (located behind Orvis) and signed for with student ID Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Your room assignment and your roommate’s information will be mailed to you in June. It will also be available on BannerWeb. The Office of Residential Life encourages you to contact your roommate to arrange room set up and items you wish you bring.
It is important to remember that communication is the key to an effective roommate relationship. If you and your roommate take the time to discuss any problems and work together to solve those problems, then you are off to a good start. However, sometimes difficulties may arise that need more attention. If this type of situation does occur, please seek assistance from your resident assistant (RA) or residence director (RD). Your RA and RD are trained to assist you and your roommate to solve any problems you may be having.
You will be asked to provide medical documentation to our Office of Health Services. If approved, and space is available, we will do our best to provide you with appropriate accommodations. Please be aware that there is an additional charge for single room accommodations.
