Instructions for Spring Break 2018

March 26-30, 2018

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. First, the residence halls remain open, but the dining centers are closed. Additionally:

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!
  • BTW, spring break is a great time to put in those needed room repairs you've been putting off

If you’re STAYING:

  • Resident advisors will be on-call 24/7 during spring break and will be available in your hall
  • Be alert for strangers in the building (call 911 or contact your community center if you are concerned)
  • Lobby doors for all halls will be kept locked 24/7 so make sure to keep your Buff OneCard on you at all times 
  • Community centers (front desks) will be open during break but will have a reduced schedule (see below)
