Residential Learning & University Housing
Checkout Fall 2013 Information
On Thursday, December 19 at 9:00 p.m. all residence halls and apartment complexes will close for winter break, for all students excluding those who have been approved for Winter Break housing. Students are required to checkout with their building staff and return their key within 24 hours of their last final exam or no later than Thursday, December 19 at 9:00 p.m., whichever comes first. Residents’ failure to return their key will result in an automatic lock change charge, ranging from $50-$180, depending on the building. Students should not attempt to return their key by mail.
Residents are not required to bring home all their belongings, but it is highly recommended they bring home any important or valuable items since they will not be permitted to re-enter their building until Spring 2014 check-in on Sunday, January 19.
If a student is unable to checkout within 24 hours of their last final or by 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 19, they should submit a checkout extension request between Wednesday, November 13 and Friday, December 6. Submissions after the December 6 deadline will not be considered. Please keep in mind that a request does not guarantee an approval and will only be considered for extenuating circumstances such as international/domestic flights, academic reasons, etc.
How to submit a checkout extension request:
The student’s Residential Learning Coordinator will respond to their request via their Rowan email address.
During finals week, December 13 through December 19, students will be asked to officially checkout with a Residential Learning staff member. Students who are not returning in the Spring 2014 semester, currently have a vacancy in their room, or are informed that one or more roommates are leaving, must schedule a checkout appointment with their RA. Students who are returning to their fall assignment and have no vacancies in their room/apartment, can complete an express checkout which consists of handing in your room key at the designated checkout location in your building during the times below:
*Important Note to Rowan Blvd. Residents: Rowan Blvd. residents are expected to checkout with building staff during one of the abovementioned checkout times.

On Thursday, December 19 at 9:00 p.m., card swipe access will be removed for all Rowan Blvd. residents (except those with approved winter break housing applications).
