Spring Break 2013

  • Halls Close:  Friday, March 22 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Halls Open:  Sunday, March 31 at 12:00 p.m.


All residents must vacate the on campus Housing facilities no later than 7:00 p.m., Friday, March 22, 2013. The buildings will be locked during the entire break period and access will not be allowed, so remember to pack everything you will need. It‘s recommended that all valuables be taken with you. We discourage leaving vehicles during the break period. If you have fish, please remember to take them with you.


A Spring Break Check-Out Sheet will be issued to each room/suite prior to closing. Each sheet will list tasks that must be completed prior to departure. After you complete each task, initial the form. The last resident to leave their room/suite must slide the sheet under the door of their RA. In so doing, your RA knows that the residents have left for break and room/suite is ready to be checked.


Housing and Residential Life staff will be entering your room/suite over the break to check for health, safety and/or maintenance problems. Residents are responsible for overall condition and cleanliness of rooms/suites. If your window screen is down or damaged, if trash is left behind, if your smoke detector is down or without batteries, or if furniture needs to be returned to common areas, etc., you will be charged accordingly. Please take care of these minor details before your departure and avoid additional expense.
