Openings, Closings, and Breaks

Early Arrival Housing

Fall Semester

The earliest date and time that may be requested to arrive for the Fall semester is 9:00 a.m. on the Sunday prior to the published Residence Hall opening date. No requests for early arrival to the Circle Apartments will be approved. The student's employment supervisor, athletic coach, dean's office, academic adviser, or club coordinator must submit the request for an eligible reason. Students whose special circumstances are beyond the scope of these may submit an individual request. However, only those requests deemed both reasonable and necessary will be approved.

Spring Semester

*** Students who had an on-campus Fall assignment and would like to return to campus prior to the official Spring semester opening can return to their Fall assignment as early as Sunday, January 3rd, 2016 as part of our Break Housing options. They do not need to submit an Early Arrival Request form.

Early Arrival Requests for those students who did not live on campus during the Fall semester but are required to check in to their Spring housing assignment prior to the published Spring semester check-in date must receive written approval from the Office of Residential Life to arrive early. Students without written authorization found in a residence hall or who make an attempt to check-in early are subject to a $100.00 unauthorized presence fee. The earliest date you can request is the Wednesday prior to the published residence hall opening date for the Spring semester.

Early Arrival Request forms will be available beginning Monday, July 18th.
