Room Switching Notice 2017-2018
The following information is for students who are switching their campus housing in Semester II.
Students who are switching rooms are responsible for completing their move out of their Semester I room and into their Semester II room by 12:00 p.m., Saturday, December 23. All residence halls will close and OneCards will be deactivated for the Winter Break by 12:00 p.m., Saturday, December 23. Any student found in the residence halls after this deadline will be required to leave immediately and may be fined $150.00.
Students who are switching rooms in Semester II are responsible for returning their Semester I room key to the Facilities Management Office before leaving campus for Winter Break. Please do not leave your key at Campus Safety and do not give your key to someone else to return. If returning your key outside normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 7:30am-3:30 p.m.), place your key in a sealed envelope with your name and drop it in the mail slot located under the window of the Facilities Management Office.
Students who forget to return their room key before they leave campus must send their key back to Facilities via FedEx or UPS, as keys tear out of regular USPS envelopes. If keys are not returned by the deadline (see pg. 7 in the Residential Life Handbook), students will be charged.
If a student will be living in your room in the Spring, please try to accommodate them, since they must move their belongings into their new room before the residence halls close. If you will be leaving campus before the student, and they need the key to your room, please go to Facilities together, with your OneCards, in order to change the key records. The Facilities Management Office will close at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, December 22.
Students can pick up the key to their Semester II room before Winter Break if the key to their new room is turned in before they leave, or if the current resident goes with them to change the key records. In the event that you cannot make arrangements with the student moving out of your new room, please contact the Office of Residential Life immediately.
Leaving Your Semester I Housing:
Please leave your room in the condition that you found it upon moving in, including putting back all furniture to its original state. You are responsible for cleaning your room and removing all trash and recycling. Please close and lock your windows, turn off all lights, and lock your door when you leave. If Facilities finds that you have left your room, apartment, and/or common area in an unsatisfactory condition, you will be charged.
Moving into Your Semester II Housing:
Inspect your new room. Fill out and submit the online Room Condition Form before the Winter Break or immediately upon your return in January.
