Frequently Asked Questions
Openings & Closings
Where can I find the opening and closing dates?
University Housing publishes the opening and closing dates for the year approximately a year in advance and will add them to the academic calendar. Residents should always consult the academic calendar and opening and closing dates before making any travel plans.
Is University Housing open during breaks?
University-operated housing is open during the Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break. The Community Desks will be closed, but RAs will be on call. No guests are allowed on campus during the break period. All residential facilities close for Winter Break and you can view the opening and closing dates online. Residents who have extenuating circumstances and need to stay on campus for winter break should contact University Housing. Residents approved to stay on campus during winter break will be charged an additional fee per additional night. Read more about the Extended Stay Policy (STUD-334) online.
What do I do if I need to move in early or stay late?
Per the Extended Stay Policy (STUD-334), University Housing allows residents to move in early or stay late for required University sponsored activities or significant circumstances. Contact our office directly to discuss next steps, preferably 30 days prior to the start/end of the semester. Residents approved for an extended day will be charged an additional fee per additional night.
Do I have to move out at the end of fall semester?
Residents planning to return to CCU for spring semester do not have to move out. Resident Advisers (RAs) will have floor meetings prior to exams to review closing procedures. We encourage residents to take any valuables home and lock their windows, bedroom door and suite/apartment door before leaving. University Housing staff will check all spaces at closing to ensure all closing procedures have been followed.
If I am attending summer school, do I have to move out at the end of spring semester?
Residents who are living on campus for Maymester will be allowed to remain on campus and move from their spring housing assignment to Maymester assignment when ready. We will contact the affected students prior to the end of spring semester with more details. Students who are attending other summer terms are not permitted to move in early and no storage is available.
