All residents are expected to vacate their rooms 24 hours after their last exam unless they are participating in graduation.
We ask that everyone demonstrate a high degree of respect and courtesy during finals week to allow others to study. Quiet hours for finals week begin at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, May 9th. At all times it is expected that floor communities will maintain a quiet environment conducive to studying. The priority is for students to be able to study in their rooms.
Change your address - Do you receive bank, credit card, and/or insurance statements? Maybe you have subscribed to and receive DVDs, books and/or magazines? Or, your family and friends send you personal letters? Please contact any person or business/organization who regularly sends mail to you and change your address with them prior to checking out for the summer. Changing your address with them directly will allow your mail to be sent directly to you instead of having the University forward your mail. This saves time and potential problems with delayed or misdirected mail. The University will not forward magazines, catalogs, bulk mailings, or any other non-first class mail.
Packages delivered by UPS, FedEx, and other couriers will not be accepted, forwarded or held for pick up; but instead will be returned to sender. Should any First Class mail be received for you, after you check out, it will be forwarded to the permanent address you have listed with the Registrar’s Office. If you want your First Class mail sent to a different address over the summer, be sure to change your mailing address located in the “Personal Information” section in the My Southeast Portal.
Due to precautions being made related to COVID-19, students will only have the option to check out of the residence halls by Express Checkout. A formal “walk-through” appointment with a staff member will not be necessary. Students will be expected to clean their room thoroughly before returning their key(s)/keycard. Your room must be in its original condition or you may be charged for damages/cleaning.
If you are not graduating or moving to summer pre-session housing, you are required to check out of your room 24 hours after your last exam.
It is important you follow the instructions above. We do not want to charge students for failing to take responsibility in properly checking out. Thank you for your cooperation.
All students who will be staying on campus for the summer session will be required to relocate to Towers South.

All students will be expected to be checked out of their spring housing assignments by 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 18th, unless prior authorization from Residence Life has been given.
