Please report to your complex office when you arrive to complete necessary paperwork. Resident Assistants (RA's) will be available throughout the weekend to assist you. Students that are participating in an organization that requires early arrival, such as Football or Band, please contact the appropriate person from that office for details regarding move in.
All complexes are fully furnished. You will need to bring bedding:

Linens, dishes, towels, cleaning supplies, electronic equipment (televisions), are not provided. If this is your first time away from home, less is better! Communicate with your roommates on who will bring kitchen/living room items before you arrive.
***Housing is open for all other breaks.
Please read your housing contract carefully!
By default, all housing contracts are for the academic year (Fall and Spring semester). Our policy states:
“CANCELLATION (Resident): Housing facilities are rented for the academic year beginning on the Commencement Date and ending on the Expiration Date. No Resident may withdraw from the housing except in case of extreme necessity and approved by the University. Cancellation of registration or academic suspension does not automatically release the Resident from the contract. Subletting by the Resident is not permitted. Students should submit their request to break their nine month housing contract by filling out the "Housing Cancellation Request" form located through Manage My Housing. Residents who are permitted to break their housing contract will be subject to a penalty.”
As discussed above,you will need to log into your Manage My Housing and submit a "Housing Cancellation Request" if you wish to submit a request to break your contract. If you are approved by our office to break your contract, in most cases a housing penalty equivalent to one month's rent will still be assessed for all upperclassmen.
Freshmen Only: Furthermore, your contract explains the residential requirements governing freshmen, and it reads:
“RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS: All first year Freshmen are required to live on campus. Students may apply for an exception if they: live within a 45 mile radius, are married and / or have a child(ren), have medical condition preventing them from living in a campus environment.”
Freshmen requesting to be released from Housing must remember that they are required to live on campus for one academic year. Freshmen withdrawing from housing will be assessed a penalty for terminating your contract. Penalty charges will be the equivalent to the remaining monies due on your housing contract for the academic year. If you have any questions, please call us so we can provide any additional information you may need to make an informed decision: (423) 425-4304.
