General Information

What is Extended Stay (EX) or Early Arrival (EA)?

Extended Stay is the need for a student to stay in their University of Dayton housing later than that academic year’s published move-out dates. Except in summer, the final date by which students must be moved out of their University of Dayton housing assignment is usually the Friday of finals week by 6:00pm. Early Arrival is the need for a student to arrive on campus earlier than that academic year’s published move-in dates. The approved dates students are able to move in to their University of Dayton housing assignment is usually one or two days prior to the beginning of classes. Extended Stays and Early Arrivals are exceptions and require a special request.
