From your inbox: a memo regarding residence halls (and important dates)

May 3, 2012

Residence Halls close for all non-seniors on Wednesday, May 9, at 5 p.m.—less than a week from today. Non-seniors needing to stay until graduation must be working for graduation or departmental receptions or helping with office/department clean up duties, and are welcome to stay if they notify the residence life office. If you have students working/volunteering for you during this time, please send Res. Life a list of their names as soon as possible.

All non-seniors need to check out of their residence hall space prior to graduation. This allows the Res. Life department to focus on senior check-out following the ceremony. All residence halls will close for seniors at 8 p.m. on Sunday, May 13.

Summer workers/students, who will start immediately on Monday, May 14 may stay in their room until they move on Tuesday, May 15, and Wednesday, May 16. Please allow your workers time to move during these days so we can secure the buildings and transition into summer operations. Summer Block students will also stay in their rooms.

Summer information:

Immediately following reunion (June 8-10) the college will start the transition to the new food service.

As we plan for the end of summer, there are important dates to keep in mind. All summer workers with a housing contract past Thursday, Aug. 16 will have to move to their fall rooms on Aug. 15-16. Please allow some time off on these days as it is critical we vacate houses for cleaning. Students with a housing contract that ends on Aug. 16 are expected to check out of their room and depart campus on that day.

Students who do not have on-campus housing for the fall 2012 semester must check out of summer housing by Aug. 1. This will allow us time to clean and accommodate the early arrivals necessary to operate New Student Days and regular fall opening.

Fall opening:

New students arrive to campus on Monday, Aug. 20.  Returning students are scheduled to arrive on the 25th and 26th of August. Res Life’s goal is to focus on the new students and their adjustment to Beloit during New Student Days. In light of this focus on new students, we ask that only essential student workers return early. Offices should send Res Life a list (by July 1) of early arrivals so they can plan accordingly.
