The End of the Semester Is Here!

But not just yet...

Before You Leave

It's important that you check off this list before you head off for winter break! Doing so will help keep your room in the best condition while you're gone.

  • Clean the room before you leave!
  • Remove ALL food from the refrigerator
  • Remove ALL trash
  • Unplug all electronics (EXCEPT refrigerators)
  • Close and lock the windows (or face returning to a cold, snowed in room)
  • Pull down the blinds
  • Pack all valuables! This includes: medication, cellphones, chargers, NUID, passports, driver's licenses, etc.


During Your Departure

When that sad time comes to leave your beloved Stetson West for three weeks, there are some things you should know.

You must leave STW after your last final OR by 12:00 pm on Sunday Dec. 20th (whichever comes first). You also may not return before noon Sunday Jan. 10. If you have already made other arrangements with housing then this does not apply to you! In case you do require an exception then contact Alanna or Whitney immediately.

For those of you leaving, here are the checkout hours provided on each day:
  • December 14-15, 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm
  • December 16- 17, 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm
  • December 18- 19, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
  • December 20, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Checkout sheets will be available outside the RA staff office for anyone leaving outside of checkout hours.

For those with roommates: The last person to leave the room for winter break must post the "Winter Break Checklist" on the outside of the door prior to leaving.

After You Leave (You thought it was over didn't you?)

Please be aware that once you leave your room there will be a Health and Safety Inspection that will be conducted. This will be like the inspections done earlier in the semester, meaning RA's will be keying into your rooms.

To those with vacancies in their room: You WILL be getting a roommate next semester! Please note:
  • Your belongings should only take up your side of the room and the other side is clean
  • University cleaning services will come by your room to partially clean the space during break

It's been a great semester everyone, have a wonderful break!
