Residence Hall Calendar
All dates are subject to change.
Without limiting the foregoing, the University may modify the open, closing and break dates for the Residence Halls. The University also may require a Resident to change rooms and/or vacate the residence halls for a period of time. These decisions by the University may be based on the need to provide accommodations for Residents during the academic year and/or to protect the health and safety of other Residents, employees, and/or the campus community, including but not limited to in response to risks and considerations related to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. If the University makes any such change, Residents will be notified as soon as practicable under the circumstances. Any reduction in total number of available Occupancy days for a Resident, based on the University's decision under one of the above reasons, will result in a corresponding pro rata return to the Resident of rent paid to Housing and Dining. The rent is calculated by the amount paid by the Resident, less standard move out costs incurred by the University, which is generally around $215. A Resident will not incur any extra charge if the University requires the Resident to move rooms during the Occupancy period for one of these listed reasons. If a Resident elects to no longer occupy a Residential Space when a Residential Space is still available to them, the liquidated damages set out in the Contract apply, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
