The residence halls (except Barnes, Bemis, and Northeast) will close at 6:00 PM on Friday, March 6, 2015. The halls will reopen at 10:00 AM on Sunday, March 15, 2015.

Directions for everyone leaving for Spring Break

In an effort to conserve energy and provide security, please do the following before you leave for break:

  1. Unplug all electrical equipment except the refrigerator. Computers, aquariums, televisions, etc., should all be unplugged.
  2. Wash all dirty dishes.
  3. Throw away all trash and clean out the trash can. Take all trash to compactor. Activate compactor with room key.
  4. For this time of year, set room temperature on 70 degrees and fan speed on auto -or- halfway between blue and red with fan speed on low to conserve energy.
  5. Remove belongings from closet floor. This prepares the room to be sprayed for pests.
  6. Close and lock windows.
  7. Turn lights off.
  8. Lock your room.

If you have questions, contact your RA or hall director.

Have a safe and happy spring break!
