Opening DayHousing Services recognizes students may have extenuating circumstances in which a request to depart and/or return to on-campus housing outside of the occupancy dates could be needed.  While individual requests outside of normal occupancy dates are not always approved, Housing Services will review each request submitted by the established deadlines. 

For the 2021-2022 academic year: 

  • Fall 2021 Closing: The residence halls will close to all students on Sunday, December 19th at 12:00 p.m. 
  • Spring 2022 Opening: The residence halls will open to all students on Saturday, January 8th at 12:00 p.m. 

Expectations

Services including, but not limited to, regular custodial services, dining services, residence hall offices, and mail delivery may not be available during periods outside the contract period. Students who are permitted to reside on-campus outside of the occupancy dates should also be aware that work being done in the facilities may create temporary inconveniences. Students permitted on-campus may not allow others who have not been previously authorized, including guests and roommate(s), to occupy residence hall space. Unapproved individuals will be asked to leave the building and may be billed for dates in residence. All policies and procedures are applicable during times outside of the regular contract period.

Cost

Students who receive approval (i.e. who are not endorsed by a faculty or staff member to participate in an authorized University-function) will be charged for the additional nights on-campus.  The charge will be added to their student account for the corresponding semester.

Request Process

If a student is participating in a University approved function, a request from a University staff or faculty member is required for consideration. Please have the appropriate faculty or staff member email the request to cua-housing@cua.edu.  Students do not need to submit individual requests if their reason for late stay/early arrival approval is being submitted by a faculty or staff member.  Housing Services will notify the student if a request has been submitted on their behalf by a University faculty or staff member.  

Please submit an individual request for consideration if your need to stay late or arrive early if not associated with a University department. Students who submit an individual request are subject to the nightly room rate.  Submitting a request does not guarantee approval. 

Before submitting a request, students should make every effort to depart campus no later than Sunday, December 19 at 12:00 p.m. and return to campus no earlier than Saturday, January 8, 2022, at 12:00 p.m.  Both forms will remain open for requests until December 15, 2021.
