Students who have not been pre-approved or guests of pre-approved students are not permitted to stay with friends or siblings on-campus.

Students who fail to check out of their rooms will incur a late check-out fine of $100.00, and may also incur additional per diem charges until they vacate their rooms.

Students who need to stay for Reunion and Commencement week and are not working for University Relations, need to complete a Transition Housing application by Friday, April 26, 2013 at 4:30 p.m.  Please note that applying for an extension does not guarantee the application will be approved.  Only extenuating circumstances will be considered and students will be notified via email the week of May 1, 2013.

Students living in the Butterfields, Clark, Bennet Hall, Hewitt and Program Houses will be required to relocate if approved to stay beyond May 18th. For more information about transition housing, please visit our website at
