Eagle and Reuter Hall will remain open over winter break.  Residents in those halls do not need to sign-up for early arrival housing.

Early arrival housing begins January 14, 2018. This is the earliest date that students will be able to return to the residence halls. Students who need to return to campus early must complete the early arrival sign-up form

For those who are returning due to membership in a university organization or as part of a campus job, please check with your supervisor, coach, or advisor to see if your information has already been submitted to the Office of Residence Life. If your early arrival information has already been submitted on behalf of your organization, you do not need to complete the early arrival form.

Unless a university organization is covering early arrival costs for you, the per-night fee will be charged to your student account. Be sure to review the important dates and information below regarding spring semester early arrivals.
