Residence Halls
24 hour quiet hours are in effect throughout final exams week. The halls close at 7 p.m. this Friday.

Leaving for the Holidays  -   reminders to share with your student:
  • Discard any perishable foods. (You really don't want to come back to that smell.) 
  • Don't announce your absence on Facebook, Twitter, or other social networking sites. 
  • Secure electronics and other valuables out of plain sight if you're not taking them with you.
  • Make sure the doors and windows are securely locked and close the curtains or blinds so no one can see inside your room or apartment. (Not just during the holiday break, but also any time you are away.)
  • For off-campus students, make arrangements for mail delivery. Either arrange with the post office to hold your mail or ask someone to pick up your mail regularly.
  • Don't hide a spare key in an easily accessible location. 
Spring Semester Registration
If your student hasn't yet registered for spring semester, please encourage an appointment with an academic advisor  before  the holidays. WMU offices are open through Dec. 21.
