Students enrolled in Summer Intensive Studies who are 18 years of age or younger at the start of the program are subject to curfew requirements. This curfew has been established for participants' safety. Student Housing will enforce a midnight curfew every night for the duration of the program. Failure to observe the curfew will result in removal from the residence hall.
Students 19 and older will be assigned to space where they are not subject to curfew and can request overnight guest accommodations on a very limited basis.
Check-in at the residence halls is between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. If the office is closed when you arrive, you can have the security guard on duty contact the residence hall staff member on duty to check you in.
Students must check out from residence halls by 12:00 noon. Students can submit requests for a later check-out time to the Office of Student Housing and Residence Life. No late check-out is allowed without prior approval.
