Residence Key Pick-up and Drop-off
  • Current spring residence keys should be dropped off with Residential Education Office.
  • Summer Housing key pick-up and drop off at Residential Education Office, and at Campus Safety Office during weekends and after hours.

To ensure residential spaces are properly prepared for summer, storage of items in residential properties is not permitted, including leaving items with another student to store over the summer. Please arrange for off-campus storage. A listing of local storage facilities has been provided for convenience, and is not to be considered an endorsement by the Colleges. Use of any private storage facility is a private transaction between the student and the storage company. The storage agreement and payment are the responsibility of the student.

If you have received approval to remain on campus during the temporary housing period, please understand permission has been granted to stay in your assigned room, and only your assigned room. Permission has not been granted for you to leave items in common room areas. Common room areas are any areas outside of your assigned room. Such examples include, but not limited to, hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, porches, and living rooms. Please secure all your items in your assigned room. We are not responsible for items left in the common room areas during the temporary stay/extended stay period.
