Should the student withraw from their courses, they will no longer be eligible to live in university housing, and are expected to move out within 24 hours. The student is required to email Res Life Summer Housing at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to arrange their move out.
Those applying for summer session housing should register for their courses prior to applying for housing. Housing can not be granted until the student has registered for courses.
