Winter Closing 2016 Extension Application & Spring Opening 2017 Early Arrival Application

Extension Date: Thursday December 22, 2016

Earliest Arrival Date: Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Group Creation Deadline: December 5, 2016

Group Administrators

  • Groups must be sponsored by a department in order to be considered for extension housing and/or early arrivals. Not all groups will be approved.
  • Group administrators are responsible for the conduct of their group's members. Any incidents that occur during an extension and/or early arrival period will result in the involved student's immediate removal from housing and may jeopardize the ability for the group to be approved for future extensions and/or early arrivals. Please remind your group's members that adherence to University policies is critical for the success of the group and that no exceptions to this policy will be made.
  • Group administrators must create their group online via the Agora Portal. To do this, click on the "My Services" tab > "My ResLife" > "Web Forms" > "Group Transitions" > "Create Group"
  • If for some reason your group needs to arrive or depart outside the standard dates, please include in your comments the complete details of your situation. Requesting a date outside the normal range may delay the processing of your group. Group approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of Residential Life.
  • Once you create your group, it must be approved by Residential Life before your students can apply as part of your group. Once your group is approved, your students should use the above instructions for applying as part of your group.
  • Group administrators must approve their list of group members before the students' applications are reviewed.
  • Please allow up to 3 business days for all processing.
