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 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.

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.

Social Media

Follow us on social media!  Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram for regular updates, pictures and information about life on campus.
