Keys will be available to pick up between 11am-5pm on Fri, Dec 14, and 9am-5pm on Mon-Wed, Dec 17-19, at the RL&H Office (you must pick up the new room key before 5pm on Wed, Dec 19).

|Friday, December 21, 9am||If a room change is granted, you must have completed moving out of your old room * & turned in your Room Change envelope (containing your old room keys). This is the date/time that the residence halls close for Winter Break.|
* Students who receive a room change are required to pick up their new room keys (before 5pm on Wednesday, December 19) and be completely moved out of their old room / suite by the start of Winter Break (9am on Friday, December 21). If you wish to leave for Winter Break before moving your belongings into your new room, you may do so as long as you have completely vacated your old room / suite (i.e. all your belongings). You may choose to take your belongings home for break, move them into a friend's off-campus apartment, or move them into the room of a friend who is not moving or leaving for the Spring (note: Res Life cannot provide you access to your friend's room when you return from Winter Break; they would have to open their room for you to get your belongings). The important thing is that you will have vacated your old room and not held up other students' room changes.
If you are granted a room change and you receive permission to stay in housing for Winter Break, please note that you would be living in your new room, not your old room (i.e. room changes must be completed before the start of Winter Break).
Elliott, 616, and 620 will be completely closed from 9am on December 21 through 9am on January 14. Students who receive December Room Changes to those buildings and who apply to be in residence during that time period will be responsible for locating someone (in a residence hall which will be open) who will confirm permission for the student to use their room by submitting the Winter Break Room Host Form (PDF).
