Check-in and check-out

- All students must complete a check-in and check-out form to ensure accurate billing.
- Before check-out, students are required to thoroughly clean and restore their room to its original arrangement.

- Students who have applied for, are accepted, and have paid their residence deposit for the Fall 2020-21 term are the only individuals permitted to have a lease that includes August 2020. These students will be required to move rooms during early August so the apartments may be prepared for fall housing.
