Many of you are currently making arrangements for staffing for the start of the spring semester. Some offices will need to bring their student workers back early to support opening operations. I have listed below the guidelines our office uses when processing early arrival requests. Please review them as you begin to plan.
We encourage you to provide meal arrangements for any employees you are bringing back early. If your department wishes to make meal plan arrangements, please contact the Office of Conference and Event Services. Otherwise please notify your students that they can purchase an individual meal plan through the Office of Conference and Event Services. Students who do not have special arrangements cannot eat in the dining hall until brunch on Saturday, January 14, 2006.
1. Early arrivals are any students whom you will require to arrive on campus prior to the regular check-in date of Saturday, January 14, 2006. Please include only the names of those students whose early arrival is necessary for the operation of your department during spring opening and are on-campus residents.
2. To schedule a student for early arrival, please e-mail [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] with the following information: Student Name, ID Number, Reason for Return/Department, and Date of Arrival. Please provide this information by Thursday, December 22, 2005.
3. Early arrival requests must be submitted to the Office of Residential Life by 5:00 p.m., Thursday, December 22, 2005. Late requests may not be able to be considered.
4. Check in for all early arrivals will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 11, 2006. Students may not return to their rooms before this time. Early arrivals scheduled to change housing assignments must return to their fall assignment. They will be able to move into their new housing assignment on Thursday, January 12, 2006.
For additional information or if you have any questions, please contact the Residential Life Office in the East Tower at 274-3141. Thank you.
