March Updates from Residence Life and Housing

Hello Bulldogs!

The Residence Life and Housing staff is excited to welcome you back to campus and hope you had the opportunity to recharge over Spring Break! Please review the important reminders regarding upcoming deadlines, preparing for Room Draw, May Term and Summer Housing.

Are you graduating this year or studying abroad in the fall semester? Don't worry! No housing selection action is needed on your part. We merely send this message to all current students to make sure to not miss anyone returning for another year who needs housing.
