Winter Closure

Leaving Residence, Building Closure and Extended Stay Requests

As stated in the "Conditions of Accepting a Room in Residence" Contract, all residents must vacate their rooms within 48 hours following the date of their final examination, test, class or on campus commitment as recorded by the Registrars' Office at the end of the term. The Residence Office will be collecting this information from the Office of the Registrar. 

Residents requesting to stay beyond 48 hours following the date of their final examination test or class must submit an Extended Stay Request Form by the deadline date. The link to the Extended Stay Request Form will be provided in the Winter Closure Memo.  All requests will be acknowledged, however, not all requests received will be granted.

Garbage, Recycling and Unwanted Items

Please ensure that all garbage is removed from your suite/townhouse prior to your check out.  All items for recycling (e.g. cans, plastics, glass, newspapers, and cardboard) should be placed in the proper recycling containers.  Items left in your room/suite will be subject to a removal fee. Please be advised that items such as electronics (e.g., televisions) and furniture are not permitted to be disposed of within the garbage bins located within residence. Residents are responsible for disposing of such items themselves.

Donation tables will be set up on the lobby of your complex.  Students may donate their unwanted items to this table in the form of clothing suitable for reuse; unopened, non-perishable food items, and general housewares and school supplies. These items will be donated to local charities on your behalf.  Please note electronics and furniture cannot be left on the donation table.
