Instructions for Spring Break 2017

March 27-31, 2017

Spring break is coming up (yay!) and whether you’re leaving town or staying on campus, there are a few things to keep in mind.

If you’re leaving, make sure:

  • Windows are closed and locked
  • Electrical appliances are unplugged (except the refrigerator)
  • Items picked up off floor (in case emergency repair is needed)
  • Heat is set on low
  • Trash/recycling is taken out
  • Lights turned off
  • Lock your door!

If you’re staying:

  • Check in with your community center (front desk) to let them know you'll be staying
  • Keep your door locked, even when you just run down the hall
  • Don't prop external doors open or let anyone into the building that you don't know
  • Be alert for strangers in the building (call 911 or contact your community center if you are concerned)
  • Check the duty board to see what RAs will be on-call
  • Keep your Buff OneCard on you at all times (RAs are instructed to lock unlocked doors!)
