Graduating Seniors

If you are a graduating senior who currently resides on campus, we assume you will stay in your Residence Hall space and will not check out until Thursday, May 13. Regardless of your departure date, please return your room key(s) directly to the Residential Life office as confirmation of your move-out. If your travel distance is greater than 350+ miles, you can request a late checkout, but you must apply in advance via the after-finals form.
