Fall 2014 Closing Information

On Friday, December 19 at 10:00 a.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 Friday, December 19 at 10:00 a.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 2015 check-in on Sunday, January 18.

If a student is unable to checkout within 24 hours of their last final or by 10:00 a.m. on Friday, December 19, they should submit a checkout extension request between Monday, November 10 and Sunday, December 7 at 11:59pm. Submissions after the December 7 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.

The student’s Residential Learning Coordinator will respond to their request via their Rowan email address.

During finals week, December 12 through December 19, students will be asked to officially checkout with a Residential Learning staff member. Students who are not returning in the Spring 2015 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. During the appointment an inspection of the student room/apartment will be conducted with the RLUH staff member to ensure the vacancy is actually ready to receive a new resident in the Spring semester. 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:
