Student and Residential Life
Residential Life, Dining Services and Recreation
All resident students are to move out and return home as soon as possible–for your own safety and for the safety and well-being of our entire community. See the March 16 communication sent to residential students. All residence halls will suspend normal operations on Wednesday, March 25, at 5:00 pm. Partial residence and meal plan refunds will be calculated and prorated as of Monday, March 23. We appreciate your patience during this process.
If you cannot move all your belongings at this time, please contact your hall director to arrange a move out date/time that is convenient. All belongings and rooms will remain locked and secure until you can safely return and remove belongings.
Exceptions are possible for those who can’t return home due to travel restrictions or other extreme circumstances or hardships including:
- Students who live abroad or who live a significant distance from campus
- Students who do not have a safe and secure place to call home for the remainder of the semester
- Students who do not have access to reliable internet for successful completion of online learning
You may apply for an exception by March 20, 2020, if you have extreme circumstances or hardships as outlined above. The residential life administrative staff will have final approval of exception requests.
Beginning March 23, 2020, if you have had to remain on campus, you will be expected to complete coursework online/virtually from your residence hall.
On-campus Dining Services will continue to operate to serve students and staff who remain on campus during this time. However, based on recent state restrictions, only grab-and-go packaged foods will be available for takeout.
If you have any additional questions, please email email@example.com, or contact your Residence Hall Director.
All residential students received a credit adjustment to their student accounts for any applicable on-campus housing and/or meal plan charges, calculated and prorated effective March 23, 2020—the date when you would have returned from Spring Break but could not. Any credit adjustments were applied directly to student accounts. If your adjustment resulted in a credit balance on your student account, you can expect to receive a direct refund.
Commuter students who have unused balances on their meal plan accounts will have the balances carried over to Fall 2020. If you are a graduating senior, that balance has been credited to your student account accordingly.
To check your student account, please go to the Refunds page on the Student Financial Services website. Under the section “Review Your Account Information”, please use CLASS to access your account. You will need to log into eCampus.
If you have any questions about your student charges or credit adjustments, please reach out to the Office of Student Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, the CRS will be closed until further notice as of Monday, March 16.
