Status of Opening Work Orders and Maintenance

It has truly been a busy summer in the Department of Residence Life. As our maintenance department continues to work diligently to address all maintenance related issues, we would like to let all of our students know that some work on projects may extend into the Fall 2014 semester. We ask that when you arrive, if a project is noted on your inventory or by your RA as in progress, or in the queue to be addressed, that you are aware that our maintenance staff will be addressing those issues as soon as possible. We typically address issues on the basis of urgency with safety, security, and basic life functions ranked at the highest priority first, with other concerns after those have been remedied. We thank you for your patience. If you should have any questions regarding the status of your work order, please contact your Resident Director for follow-up.


Request Permission to Arrive Early – Fall 2014:

The Department of Residence Life requests that any resident wishing to arrival early to campus for Fall 2014 review the information below. No requests are approved to arrive earlier than Friday, August 15, 2014 at 9am.

Fall 2014 housing opens for freshmen on August 20, 2014 and opens for upperclassmen on August 22, 2014. Prior to these dates, the buildings are not fully staffed and thus cannot provide the safety and security operations necessary to physically open early. Additionally, some buildings may not be ready for the early arrival process due to facility projects and renovations. If a student’s room/building is impacted by these summer projects then they will not be approved for these reasons.

Individual requests will not be reviewed until July 14, 2014. Once requests are reviewed beginning July 14, 2014 there will be five working days for residence life staff to respond to requests. Students will receive decision notifications of their submitted requests starting July 19, 2014.  Requests will be responded to by email. The deadline to receive requests will be 8:00 am, July 31, 2014. Students that are approved for early arrival will be held accountable for policies and procedures outlined in the housing contract and may be removed from early arrival housing if violation of the contract occurs. There is a daily charge of $25 for the student to move in early to their residence hall or apartment.

***Please note all Residence Life policies (including visitation and no guests) are still in effect during the Early Arrival period.

PLEASE NOTE: Requests for permission to arrive early for Fall 2014 must be received by July 31, 2014.  No requests will be accepted later than July 31, 2014.
