  Residence Halls and Greek Court will close except for Lincoln, Stevenson, Douglas and Thomas Halls on Friday, March 8 at 8 p.m.

  The Residence Halls and Greek Court will re-open on Sunday, March 17 at 1 p.m.

  All residents in Residence Halls and Greek Court have a checklist to complete before leaving to ensure the room is safe.

  Two staff members of Housing and Dining will check the safety and security of all the student rooms.

  If overfilled trash or uneaten food is in the room, the residing resident will be charged $15.

  Excessively dirty rooms will be charged $15 per hour/per person for cleaning to ensure a safe environment.

  Ground level floor residents need to close their curtains, so no potential thieves may look inside.

  All residents in all other floors need to keep their curtains open to help the University Police Department look into the building for trespassers.

  Other tasks for residents are to turn off lights, lock doors, and unplug things except for refrigerators and aquariums.

All information was provided by Mark Hudson, the director of University Housing and Dining Services.
