Check out for the semester
All students must check out of the building for the winter break (unless you have applied and paid to stay on campus for break. See information in your hall or email to see what the process is in your residence hall. Students are expected to check out no later than 24 hours after their last final exam.
All students should clean your rooms, suites, or apartments, and remove all open foods and trash before you leave. Electrical appliances (other than university-provided appliances) must be unplugged. Windows should be closed and blinds lowered. Heat (where you have individual controls) should be left ON and in the LOW setting. Beds should be stripped. Please remember that most rooms will be entered by University staff over the break for routine maintenance.
If you are returning to the same room for the spring, you may leave your belongings, although we highly recommend taking any valuables home with you for the break.
If you are moving to a new room for the spring, or are leaving housing altogether, you must remove ALL of your belongings and officially sign out of your room and your Room Inventory Form (RIF).
Please see your RD if you have any questions.
Cable TV information:
For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link.
Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).
An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.
Here is a link to an informal compatibility reference for newer devices. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
