End of Year Closing Procedures

All residence halls and apartments will close on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 12:00P (noon).

Your entire room/apartment will need to be cleaned, swept and returned to move-in condition prior to your departure.
Do not sweep trash or debris into hallways in residence halls or apartments.

There will not be a schedule for moving out from the residence halls and apartments. Students are encouraged to move out within 24 hours after their last final exam. Traffic may be heavy at times especially towards the end of the week and on Saturday due to Graduation. Please consider trying to beat the rush if you can. Students are limited to two supporters to help them move out. All students and supporters must remain masked and socially distance. A limited number of moving bins will be available in residence halls on a first come, first served basis. Please consider bringing your own hand truck.
