Housing Before and After Summer Housing Contract Period
Students who have a need to be on campus between contracted periods in May and August, should complete an application for extended stay / early arrival. An application for this process will be available at Any questions regarding this process should be directed to Joi Garrett Scales in Housing and Residence Life at

Departments will be notified of student’s approval status via email. If approved, daily housing fees will be charged to student or department accounts. Extensions in University housing are in no way guaranteed and Housing and Residence Life has no obligation to house students between contracted periods. If approved, students may be relocated to temporary housing prior to or after the summer housing contract period.

Please note for your planning: Spring semester housing contracts end and all University residential facilities will close to non-graduating students at 6 pm on Friday, May 2, 2014.

Students who do not live in summer University Housing will not be able to move into their fall university assignment until August 13, 2014.
