Move In & Out Information

The Office of Residential Life closes all residence halls for breaks between undergraduate semesters and for any extended semester breaks. You must complete this form if you need to stay in the residence halls longer than the University allows.

Any violation of the student conduct code during the intercession period will result in the immediate termination of the applicants stay without refund. Coaches are ultimately responsible for the conduct of their players.

The residence halls close on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 10 AM

All Students must check-out of their Residence Halls with a Resident Success Assistant (RSA) or another member of the Residential Life Staff. Failure to do so will result in a fine. Please attend a RSA Floor Meeting and read area specific e-mails and flyers/posters regarding the exact procedure in each area. Any student who does not Check-Out will forfeit their right to appeal any damages that may be assessed during the damage billing period.

Check-Out is not the final determination of damage. Campus Ops and the Residential Life staff make additional inspections once the entire rooms are vacated. Please refer to the Damage Billing Information page for more information.

Students who need to stay past Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 10 AM should refer to the Late Stay Housing Information below.

Late Stay Housing Information

Only students with prior approval are permitted to remain in their Spring On-campus Housing Assignment during the intersession time (May 10, 2017 – May 19, 2017).

IF YOU LIVE IN SETON and MERTON HALL: You are required to vacate your room no later than 10 AM on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 and move to Roncalli Hall because of Senior Week. Please contact Gregory Madrid, Assistant Director of Residential Life, at if you have a friend who you would like to live with in another Residential Area. An assignment will be sent to you at 4 PM on Monday, May 8th, 2017. There are no exceptions to this information.

IF YOU ARE A GRADUATING SENIOR and NOT PARTICIPATING IN SENIOR WEEK YOU ARE INELIGIBLE FOR LATE STAY HOUSING: You must vacate your room by 10 AM on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017. There are no exceptions to this information.

A charge of $40 per night will be charged to you for your stay past closing. Only students who fall under the following categories will not be charged:

  • International Students without a local host family who are staying for Summer Housing.
  • Students who need to stay in the local area for academic work including student teaching, internships, and lab experiments with prior approval from your professor or academic department.
  • In-season varsity athletes who are required to stay on campus for games or matches with prior approval from your coach.
  • Students who are working graduation in either the Band, Choir or with Student Life and the Student Union.
  • Students staying for Summer Housing at SHU and need to stay during the Building Reset from May 10th to May19th when Summer Housing opens.

If you are staying beyond the closing date, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you still complete a check-out with your RSA before the halls close. Failure to do so will result in a $50 improper check out fine.

(If you are staying on campus for academic work or as an in-season varsity athlete as defined above, please have your coach or departmental representative contact Gregory Madrid, Assistant Director of Residential Life, at to grant you the appropriate permission to stay as soon as possible.)

Fill out the request form below so you may stay in your residential housing assignment.
