Housing Resources

The Department of Housing and Residential Life cooperates with the Office of Disability Services (ODS) to provide desired assistance and/or accommodations. Students who are covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act should contact ODS, which coordinates services across many different departments. Students requesting accommodation due to a medical condition, disability, or other situation that may affect on-campus living should review University Policy 3.0042P and complete the ODS Application.

On-campus residents can have mail and packages delivered to Phase Two. Upon package arrival, the resident will be notified by Housing and Residential Life staff. Mail received without a full name and room number may be declined or returned to sender.

Move-in is held at the start of the fall and spring semesters prior to New Student Orientation. Students will be assigned a timeslot for move-in, with timeslots being staggered to minimize traffic throughout campus.

Visit Move-In Days for additional information.

Move out for the fall and spring semester will be the Saturday following Final Exams. Residents may choose to move out prior to that date; however, they remain responsible for rent and unit until the end date of their housing agreement. All residents must turn in keys and vacate by noon on that Saturday.

Parking is available for students living in the residence halls. Students must purchase a residential general permit, which is sold by semester or annually, from the Office of Parking and Transportation. More information on parking, such as prices and parking locations on campus, can be found on the Parking and Transportation website.

The Residential Life Handbook offers a plethora of information for student residents including, but not limited to, housing amenities, student code of conduct, safety and security, roommate and suitemate concerns, conduct process, lost and found, university closures, and other areas of support.
