As stated in the Housing Agreement, a Resident may not engage a locksmith service to open or change her locks.

Lost Keys

Lost keys must be reported to Campus Housing immediately. If a Resident loses her keys, the student will incur a $65 charge that will be added to her student account.

In order to change your meal plan, residents must contact Campus Housing  at by September 4, 2015.

Note: First year students must remain on the 19 meal plan.

Quiet Hours/Courtesy Hours

There are 24 hour courtesy hours in effect in the Residence Halls.  Additionally, quiet hours are enforced daily from 10:00 pm – 10:00 am.  During finals week, quiet hours are maintained 24 hours a day.  Specific dates will be communicated to Residents by Campus Housing Staff.

Room Moves

Residents are prohibited from switching rooms with one another or move from room to room without permission from the Campus Housing.

If you are having roommate concerns, see your Resident Coordinator. Getting acquainted to someone you don’t know is an achievable challenge if both residents are willing, flexible and ready to compromise. A Roommate Agreement and a commitment to keep the lines of communication open will help to mitigate concerns.
