/ Residential Life and Housing


College housing officially closes for summer break at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 2022.

Students are required to leave their campus housing within 24 hours of their last final exam or by 5 p.m. on Friday, May, 6 2022.

Instructions for move-out will be provided by the Residential Life staff during the required closing meetings.

Students who need to stay on campus later than 5 p.m. on Friday, May 6, must fill out the remain late request form. Remain late requests are designed for students who need to remain on campus due to on-campus academic commitments, on-campus employment, coach-supported athletic events or delayed travel arrangements.  

To accommodate for cleaning and turnover from the academic year to summer housing, students will be asked to live in a transitional housing (residence hall) location during the week of May 9–14.

Remain late requests for personal reasons are reviewed, but likely not granted. If approved, a $75 housing fee will be billed to your student account for each day you remain on campus after May 6.
