What to Do Before Leaving for Spring Break

The residence halls will close on Friday, March 11, 2022 at 6 PM for spring break, with the exception of Hilltopper and Rodes Harlin Halls.


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 (take home fish).

  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.  Depending on the type of thermostat in your room, set room temperature on 65 degrees and fan on auto -OR- set temperature between blue and red with fan speed on low (if adjustable).

  5.  Remove belongings from closet floor. This helps protect your belongings in the event of a water leak.

  7.  Close and lock windows.

  8.  Turn lights off.
