Parents & Families: April Housing & Residence Life updates

Spring 2019 Semester Closing Reminder

Spring semester checkout will be here soon, so it is important to start planning. The residence halls close on Friday, May 3 at 8 p.m.  Residents are encouraged to move out within 24 hours of their last exam (but no later than 8 p.m.). This helps ensure students who have completed exams are not distracting students who are still studying. Convocation Center residents and residents of South Green are highly encouraged to check out of the residence hall prior to Friday due to traffic, security details and traffic congestion created during the Friday commencement ceremonies. Bromley residents are also encouraged to move out prior to Friday, as limited parking and elevator traffic can significant cause move-out delays.   

Tips to beat the rush:

  • Move out on Wednesday or Thursday. Parking is much more plentiful on those days.
  • If possible, take home or send home as many items as possible prior to move out.
  • Remind students to pack up and clean up their room prior to move-out.
