Room Change Process Explained
Are you and a friend looking to room together? We can (possibly) help you out! The room change process is now open across campus. However, due to COVID-19, the process has changed this year. Room changes will be available uder two circumstances:
  • Roommate Agreement – You have an empty space and know someone who wants to live with you
  • Empty Rooms – You would like to move to an empty room (limited number of rooms available).

Complete details of the process can be found here
Spring Semester Start Date Changed
This week, President Wintersteen announced that classes for the spring 2021 semester will begin Jan. 25. A copy of the message can be found here with all of the details related to coursework.

When it comes to housing and dining, we're here for you! We know that many of you have already made plans based on the previous academic calendar. The residence halls will open on Jan. 7, 2021, as previously scheduled.

Additionally, all areas - even those that typically close - will remain open during winter break (sign up required). Details about the housing and dining schedule can be found here. The sign up process and full details about break service will be available in a few weeks. 
Wearing Your Mask

We know - you know! But, masks are an important part of being able to maintain a healthy community and you need to wear them. University policy states that face coverings must be worn on all university property. That includes common spaces in the residence halls, apartment hallways, dining locations (when not eating/drinking) and outside when physical distancing is not possible (six feet from others). Thanks for following the rules!
