Fall 2022 Closing

North Village Residence Halls closed for Winter Break

Friday, December 16, 2022 at 3 pm – Friday, January 20, 2023 at 8 am

During this period, you will not have access to enter the North Village residence halls. Please remember to take all of the belongings you will need during this break period, including any valuables or medications.

Residents should plan to leave within 24 hours of their last final but must be out by 3pm on Friday, December 16, 2022.

Residents with 9-month Addendum living in American River Courtyard, Riverview Hall, or Klamath Hall will be able to stay or come-and-go throughout Winter Break.

Do you have a vacant bed space in your room?

All residents with vacant bed spaces in their room should make sure that space is clean and ready in anticipation of a new resident moving in for the Spring semester. The furniture should be empty and clean as well. If the space is not move-in ready for a roommate, you may have to return during Winter Break to clean the room. RHCs and RAs will be checking spaces often for rooms that have a vacant bed space.

Returning for the Spring? Check-Out Process

All residents should inform their RA when they plan to leave for Winter Break. Residents should not move out all of their belongings for Winter Break; you will only take home the items you need for the Winter Break (valuables and medications included). All residents must complete the Winter Break Closing Check-List and then stop by their Front Desk to check out for the Fall semester. Residents will need to sign before leaving; residents will keep their keys and access card throughout Winter Break. Residents will be checked back in for the Spring semester.

Residents are expected to make sure their room is clean and secure prior to leaving for Winter Break:

  • Clean your room, including vacuuming, trash and recycling removal, and washing all dirty dishes.
  • Dispose of any perishable food items in cabinets, drawers, or fridges.
  • Unplug all electrical cords, including your MicroChill (please defrost first).
    • AMC large refrigerators should NOT be unplugged though.
  • Turn your alarm clocks off.
  • Close and lock all windows and doors; close your blinds and turn off all lights.
  • Elevate all belongings off of the floor (only belongings in plastic bins may remain on the floor) and clear your window sill of items on it or below it.
  • Bring your bike inside to avoid bike theft during the break.

Do you have an Approved Cancellation? Move-Out Process

If you are approved for an end-of-semester cancellation, you would need to move out completely and by December 16, 2022 at 3 pm. Residents with approved cancellations cannot stay for Winter Break and would not have a 9-month addendum upon cancellation approval.

All residents with approved end-of-semester, cancellations will need to make a Move-Out Appointment through the HornetHousing Portal. Check your email for details closer to move-out.

After cleaning your room and removing all belongings, residents will go to the Front Desk of their building to check out and return all keys and access cards. The RA will complete an Inventory Inspection before you leave. RHCs will do a final room inspection to determine charges based on damages or cleanliness issues.

Remember to check your mailbox and the Hornet Mail Center for any packages. Please change your address on all bills and online sites.

Late Departure Requests for December

If you need to stay until Saturday or Sunday due to travel or extenuating circumstances, you will need to request a Late Departure through the HornetHousing Portal. The latest date/time a resident can request is noon on Sunday.

The Late Departure process will be live by Monday, December 5, 2022. All late departure requests must be submitted by Wednesday, December 14, 2022.

All approved late departures are subject to the following:

  • An additional rental fee of $37.00 per night will be charged for the additional night(s) of stay. This charge will be assessed to your University account.

If the answer is yes to any of those, you will need to fill out an End-of-Semester Cancellation Request found on the HornetHousing Portal under North Village Forms. As long as your reason is supported through University documentation or documentation that you submit for any of these reasons, you will receive instructions for move-out on an Approved Cancellation email. For priority attention and review, please submit by 8 am on December 14, 2022.

Winter Break Closures

Can I stay during Winter Break?

Only residents with signed 9-month Addendums are permitted to stay in their open residence halls (Riverview Hall, AMC, and Klamath Hall). Any resident without a 9-month addendum would not be permitted to stay or enter the residence halls. If a resident wishes to sign a 9-month addendum, they must email by 8 am on December 9, 2022, and they would be asked to sign the addendum on HornetHousing.
