Residence Life Schedule

We invite you to check out our current Residence Life Schedule for the 2018-2019 academic year.  All dates are subject to change and it is the responsibility of students to be aware of any changes.  Dates for opening and closing of buildings will be posted in advance.  Students who need to stay in housing over breaks are required to register for safety and security.  Failure to register may result in removal from the halls for the remainder of the break.

Please be aware that meal plans are not active during university breaks.  It is the responsibility of the student to plan their own meals during university breaks.  During times when the residence halls are still open, but the university closes, dining service will switch to the 2 meals a day schedule.
