ALL Apartment Complexes, Holly Pointe Commons and Mimosa Hall:

Students residing in any of the apartment complexes (Edgewood Park, Triad, Townhouses, Rowan Boulevard, International House, and Whitney) as well as Holly Pointe Commons and Mimosa Hall are permitted to stay on campus during winter break.

Traditional Residence Halls:

All traditional campus residence halls (non-apartment style) are officially closed for winter break, beginning on Thursday December 21 with the exception of Holly Pointe Commons and Mimosa. However, we understand that some students may need to remain on campus for a variety of reasons. By completing a Winter Break Housing Application by following the instructions below, you can officially request to remain on campus if necessary for the winter break. Requests will be reviewed by the Residential Learning and University Housing Office and students who are approved to remain on campus will receive an email from RLUH with more information regarding winter break housing. Please submit this request form for review by Wednesday, December 6, 2017.

If approved, you must retain your room key over the break and present it to RLUH staff during check in on Sunday, January 14, 2018 or Monday, January 15, 2018. Electronic door access for card swipe doors will remain active on your Rowan ID.

**Please note that no campus dining services are available during the break period. Certain building services, such as maintenance to common area restrooms and lounge spaces will be reduced. Also, building RA staffing for the duration of the winter break will be decreased. Students that remain on campus should be cognizant that various maintenance and housekeeping focused projects may be taking place within their residence halls.**

Please submit this request form for review by Wednesday, December 6, 2017. Students will receive a confirmation email once the application is successfully completed

Pre-approved winter athletes and International students assigned to traditional residence halls will be permitted to remain in their buildings. All winter athletes will be sent an email confirmation that they are noted as a winter athlete, per the Athletic Office’s official roster, and therefore are permitted to remain in residence over winter break.  International students, will be sent a similar email once the International Center sends us their roster.  This notification to both groups will go out prior to Thanksgiving.  If you return from Thanksgiving and have not received a confirmation email from us and believe you fall into one of these categories, please email housingquestions@rowan.edu

For anyone who is permitted to stay on campus for winter break housing, there is no additional housing charge. 

 

Full Check-outs and Checkout Inspection Appointments 

Students not returning to the same assignments in the spring for any reason, will need to complete a full check out and turn in their key.  An appointment will need to be made to check out with an RA to conduct a check out inspection. The purpose of the inspection is to ensure the space has been emptied of your belongings and the room is left in a reasonable condition.

Students should schedule their checkout appointment for closing week; Between Thursday, December 14th and Thursday, December 21st at noon.  Sign-up sheets can be found on your RA’s door after Thanksgiving.

 

Vacancies & Vacancy Inspection Appointments

If a student currently has, or will have a vacancy in his/her apartment/room (by a student not returning to the same assignment for the spring semester, for any reason, or leaving altogether at the end of the fall semester), all residents of the apartment and/or room must complete a "vacancy inspection" with a RA prior to leaving for the winter break or the winter break commencing, whichever occurs first. The purpose of this inspection is to verify that the returning residents of the space understand they have a vacancy, have not spread out all over the room, and are leaving the space in an acceptable condition to welcome a new residents in the spring semester.

Students should schedule their checkout appointment for closing week; Between Thursday, December 14th and Thursday, December 21st at noon.  Sign-up sheets can be found on your RA’s door after Thanksgiving.

 

Room/Apartment Keys:

Students who are leaving campus for the break and returning to the same room/apartment for the spring, will retain their room key at the end of the semester.  Keys will only be collected for students who are not returning to their fall assignment in the spring semester (for any reason).  Please note that returning students will be expected to present their key upon spring semester check in.  A lost key will result in a lock change at the student’s expense at that time.
