Information To Current Residents

Housing would like to take the time to inform you of some potential disruptions to the normal routine which will take place in the Fall semester.  As you already know, the unviersity began construction on a new residence hall during the 15/16 academic year. At some point during the semester, parking on Vine Street will be eliminated due to the progress. Due to heat conditions, construction will begin as early as 4:00 am until the weather cools down.  During the cooler months the work will begin at 7:00 am.  

At any point if you have questions or concerns, please contact your Resident Director.
