Please remember that you are responsible for completing all of the following steps before leaving for break:

  1. Remove trash from your room and all common areas to prevent bug and rodent problems.
  2. It is recommended that you put valuable belongings, books, and clothes up off the floor.
  3. Secure all valuables and personal belongings. The College assumes no liability for personal property.
  4. Turn off all electrical appliances (only exceptions: fridge, fish tank).
  5. Close and lock room doors and windows, and close the shades.
  6. Please be advised, residence hall staff, along with facilities and/or security, will inspect every room prior to closing the halls for break, and secure any unlocked doors; don’t get charged for a lockout! Remember to bring your room/suite keys and ID with you for break, and bring them back when you return.
  7. If leaving a car on campus, please park it in the Facilities Overflow Lot. Cars left on upper or lower campus will be towed at owner’s expense in the event of a snowstorm.
