Thanksgiving Break Information

There are a lot of things available to students who will be staying on campus over the Thanksgiving holiday break.  All students are eligible to stay, but must register on ISIS by November 19th.  See our detailed webpage with more information about transportation, meal options, fun events and resources available to you! 

Create Your Own Living Learning Community!

We want to grow our Living Learning Community program and want student voices to be a part of the process.  What other topics or ideas would you like to construct a community around?

To submit your ideas, please complete this form and answer a few questions that will help us decide which communities to choose.  These applications will be due by Thursday, November 12, 2015.  After that a committee of staff and students from around campus will review the applications and the top communities will be selected.  Students will be allowed to apply to participate in these communities before the housing lottery takes place in the Spring semester.  Please contact Residential Life if you have any questions about this process.

Open and Closing Dates

Please see our Open and Close Dates page for information on when you are able to move into the halls, when you must move out of the halls and when we open and close for all breaks during the year.  Use this calendar to plan ahead when booking flights or making plans!

Room Freeze Periods

We implement a room freeze for the first two weeks and last two weeks of each semester.    We are now in a room freeze for the duration of the Spring semester.  We do not process room changes during the room freeze periods but once the freeze is lifted, students should see their Area Coordinator to discuss their options.  The fall room freeze at the beginning of the semester ended on September 23, 2015.  The fall room freeze at the end of the semester will begin on November 23, 2015.

Common Space Reservations

Looking to host an event or gathering in your residence hall common room?  You can reserve space using our Common Space Reservation process.  These used to be called Small Private Events (SPEs) and the process and rules remain the same although the name has changed.
