Current Students

The Office of Community Living guides students through their experience living on campus. Check out the menu below for a quick summary of our processes and connection points. More information is available at the designated link.

Move-In Day Toggle Accordion

Each January and August, Community Living helps students navigate the check-in process and plan for move-in day. Staff are located throughout the buildings, and closely work with Campus Safety (parking), Client Services and IT (student IDs, connectivity), and the Facilities Operations teams (maintenance and custodial needs), among others.

Information about the check-in process and move-in day is usually shared two months prior to the scheduled check-in date(s).

Room Selection Process Toggle Accordion

The Room Selection Process (RSP) occurs during Spring semester from February through April. The process includes communication updates and workshops, and application phases for each type of residential space on campus, including Intentional Living Communities, Living-Learning Communities, Apartment-style, Suite-style, and Community-style residences.

Accommodation petition forms are re-released annually during this time as well.

New RSP information is usually released in January after students return to campus.

Upcoming Breaks Toggle Accordion

For the 2022-2023 Academic Year, residence halls close for Winter Break (7:00 pm, December 15) and Summer Break (9:00 pm, April 26; 8:00 pm, April 29 for graduating seniors).

As students plan for Winter Break travel, consider the Fall 2022 Final Exam Schedule. Students must depart within 24 hours after their last scheduled exam, and no later than the residence hall closing time.


Students can remain in College housing, though classes are not in session, during Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, and Spring Break.

Dining services are limited during Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break.

Room Change Requests can be considered during the year in a case by case basis, beginning with the third week of the semester. Students seeking a room change should speak with their Area Coordinator or Community Living staff regarding their request.

Meal Plans can be adjusted up until the tenth day of the semester (Spring 2023: January 23). After this, meal plans can be updated or added at a pro-rated cost, but can not be removed or reduced.
