Subject: Important Information about the Winter Break Closing of University Residences


Dear Students,

This is a reminder that University residences will close at 12 p.m. (noon) on Sunday, December 20, 2015. The staff will start first rounds at 9 a.m. to make sure the students who are still on campus are preparing for their departure.  All students, unless given special permission to stay should be out of their building no later than noon. Students who do not leave by 12 p.m. (noon), may be charged $200 plus additional per day fees and possible referral to the Student Judicial Board.

 The staff will continue rounds and checking that rooms are secure until all students have vacated their building. All residence halls and most program houses that are closed will be alarmed. If someone tries to enter, it will set off an alarm and either Public Safety or Middletown Police will come to investigate. Residence card access is also suspended for non-approved students over the break period. 

Please remember to also take any medications, important papers, passports, identification, wallets, and school work that you will need for the break since you will not be able to access your residence until the building re-opens on January 19, 2016.

Historically, student residences are more likely to have a break-in occur over winter break than other times of the year.  It is very important that your windows and doors are secured and that you follow the instructions on your closing checklists. You are encouraged to take valuables with you.

Before you leave your residence, please make sure that all garbage (including items in your refrigerator) has been disposed of properly. Leave the refrigerator plugged in, but please make sure all other electronics are either unplugged or taken home.

All students who have been given permission to stay on campus for the break have been notified via email.  If you applied and did not receive notification of the status of your request please contact ResLife at or 860-685-3550.  **Seniors who live in wood frame houses are not sent confirmation emails since they only have to register.**

Please let us know if you have any questions and good luck on finals!
