Spring 2023 Closing Information

Housing closes at noon on Saturday, May 13, 2023.

All residents must fully vacate their room/suite/apartment by this time, and no late departures for Spring 2023 will be granted.

  • Only students who have signed up and been approved to live on campus as part of Summer Housing are granted the ability to remain in their assignment past this time.

Mail and Packages

Students must retrieve all mail and packages from The UPS Store prior to leaving campus. The UPS Store will stop receiving packages for Spring 2023 upon your check out from campus housing and no later than Saturday, May 13, 2023.

Update your mailing address for any subscriptions or scheduled deliveries. Throughout the summer, The UPS Store will only accept mail/packages for residents with a summer assignment. Mail and packages delivered to The UPS Store for non-summer residents (even those with a Fall 2023 assignment) will be returned to the sender. 

Students must retrieve all mail and packages from the University Village front desk/mailroom prior to leaving campus. Please empty your mailbox and confirm with the UV front desk that you do not have any packages to be picked up.

Update your mailing address for any subscriptions or scheduled deliveries. Any mail or packages received for students not living in summer housing will be returned to the sender. HRL does not provide storage for student belongings, but there are multiple local options available for students who would like to store personal items off campus.

Preferred Summer Storage at The UPS Store

The UPS Store at Lakeside Village is Housing and Residential Life’s preferred summer storage vendor. Stop by the store to speak with a staff member or review their summer storage options.

The UPS Store will begin accepting mail and packages for Fall 2023 students during the first week of August. Further information about mail and packages will be released over the course of the summer, including a specific date for Fall 2023 mail and packages to begin arriving.
