As the semester draws to an end, it is time to prepare your on-campus housing for Semester Closing. This not only includes packing up your personal belongings you need over break, but also fulfilling a your responsibilities as an on-campus resident:
The on-campus housing will close for winter break at 6:00 pm on Saturday, December 14th, 2013 and will not reopen until 10:00 am on Sunday, January 12th, 2013. In order to properly check out of your on-campus housing, you must complete the following tasks:
unplug everything in your room
take out your trashand recycling
defrost your refrigerator
lock the windows and close the blinds
set your heat to the required settings of your hall or area
For specific details on these tasks, please contact your hall staff or review a closing bulletin board. Any and each of these steps that are not taken will result in a $10 fee. Residence Life staff will be checking each room to ensure that the halls are ready for a four weeks. Please make sure to take everything you will need for the break period, as you will not be allowed to reenter the building once it has closed. As a reminder, the residence halls will reopen Sunday, January 12th at 10:00 am. Please go HERE for more details.
If you live in one of our on-campus apartments (Fair, Randolph, Campbell, or Patterson) and are interested in staying for all or part of Winter Break, please contact Kyler Carlson at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, banner ID, room number, and the dates you wish to stay.
There’s still time to lock in this year’s housing rates for the 2014-15 academic year!
All you have to do is stop by the Residence Life Office (MH 1100) before November 22nd to sign your housing contract for 2014-15. Contract terms and cancellation penalties do change by signing an early contract. For details about the changes, click HERE. To see the housing contract, click HERE.
By signing the early contract, you sing into a two year contract in which year one is this, 2013-14, and year two is next year, 2014-15.
Students who wish to remain on campus over Thanksgiving Break, must sign up by 5:00pm on November 15th, 2013. There is a $25 per night, or $150 for the entire break, charge for staying in the residence halls over Thanksgiving break.
The residence halls close at 6:00 pm on Friday, November 22nd, and re-open at 10 am on Sunday, December 1st.
Please contact the Office of Residence Life with any questions.
Don’t usually eat breakfast on Tuesdays? Can’t make it to lunch most Fridays? Take those extra meal blocks you’ve collected this semester and donate them to someone in need! Contribute to the United Way Campaign by donating meal blocks ($1.85 value), dining dollars or bonus bucks from your meal plan at any of the dining halls, campus convenience stores, online, or in your residence hall. At each cafeteria and convenience store, you can donate at the cashier station. Student staff will be coming around the halls all next week asking residents to donate. Every donation goes a long way to helping out others in Kirksville and Adair County. “Fast” from eating on campus for a few meals and make a big difference for someone else!
Will you be returning to on-campus housing in January?
The information provided on the Intention Form will allow us to better identify spaces available for students coming to Truman next spring as well as those spaces that will be available for room changes next semester.
Want to Change Your Meal Plan for Spring??
For residents of all buildings except Campbell and Randolph Apartments or Patterson House, the Intention Form is also your opportunity to switch to a different meal plan for the spring semester. If you have identified that you would be better suited with a different meal plan, let us know on this form and we will have it changed for spring semester. If you don’t indicate the change on this form, your meal plan will remain the same as it is now, just renewed.
It’s hard to believe how fast the summer has gone by. While the University is preparing for the arrival of our students, everyone at Residence Life is extremely excited to welcome residents back in the halls. It has been far too quiet around here for the summer!
