Important Dates about Housing

Below you'll find important dates relevant to arriving and departing from the residence halls.  We ask that you respect these dates in order to help us conduct our business effectively and safely.  If you have questions about arrival and departure dates, please contact Residence Life staff.

It has been our experience that with a little forethought and planning, students without cars are easily able to find a ride home and back during breaks. Students whose parents are unable to pick them up them are encouraged to find a ride with one of their friends.  There is a ride-share board outside of the Student Life office in Withey Hall.

For information on getting to and from campus, including airport and train links, see "Travel to and from campus" in Lesson 3.
