Spring 2011 Semester Closing Notice

Posted on 4/27/2011 8:46:20 AM

All university residence halls, apartments, and suites will be closed at the end of the Spring semester. Residents are asked to notify their community assistant of the day and approximate time they expect to check out of their residence hall, apartment, or suite.

Building Closing

  • All students, except graduating seniors, must vacate their room/apartment/suite no later than twenty-four hours after their last final examination. Students with final exams on Friday, May 6, must vacate their room/apartment/suite no later than noon on Saturday, May 7. Graduating seniors may remain in their room/apartment/suite (only if they sign up in their hall office by noon on Friday, May 6) until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, but must complete all checkout procedures prior to that time by making special arrangements with the staff responsible for that building.
  • At checkout, students must return all room/apartment/suite keys to a staff member in their building. A community assistant will complete an inspection of the room/apartment/suite at that time and compare the condition of the room/apartment/suite to the information recorded on the Room/Apartment/Suite Condition Form at check-in. Residents are encouraged to initiate the checkout process with a staff member from their particular floor. It is the student's responsibility to bring damaged and/or missing items to a staff member's attention prior to completing checkout. Students will receive the blue copy of the Room/Apartment/Suite Condition Form upon completion of the checkout process. All damages and/or missing items will result in an assessment of charges at the current cost of materials and labor. After closing, the building director will conduct a final room/apartment/suite inspection to ensure the accuracy and appropriateness of any student billings.
  • Each resident must clean his/her portion of the room/apartment/suite so that it is left in the condition it was found at check-in. All articles and possessions must be removed from the room/apartment/suite, including such materials as shelf paper, rugs, bricks, wood frames, etc., prior to the preliminary inspection. Nothing should be left in drawers and closets or under beds. Trash cans should be completely emptied. All furnishings must be returned to their original position prior to the preliminary inspection. 
  • There will be a $50 fee for failure to return a room/apartment/suite key.

    Failure to check out properly or failure to leave the room/apartment/suite in an acceptable condition will result in the assessment of a $25 fee for improper checkout. Residents of University Towers, Delaney, Putt, Ruddock, Suites on Maple East, Suites on Pratt, Wallwork, Stephenson, and Northern Suites are reminded to clean their kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom. Failure to clean these areas may result in additional charges.
  • Belongings cannot be stored in any building after Spring semester closing.
  • Please complete the following before leaving:
    • Remove all personal belongings.
    • Clean room and completely empty trash cans.
    • Close all windows and leave shades pulled halfway.
