Hall Openings and Closings

The Office of Residential Life works collaboratively with many other departments across the university to coordinate hall closing and opening processes. We work to provide as detailed and accurate information 1-3 months prior to each Residence Hall Transition. It is important that families and university departments check back regularly for the most up to date information. 

Dates for Spring 2022 are provided by the University Registrar, these dates are subject to change and more information will be found at their website by clicking on this link
