Residence Hall Closing Information

All Xavier University campus housing is closing for the remainder of the semester. 

Students are not permitted to live in campus housing after Tuesday, March 17 at 5:00 p.m. Students must make plans to retrieve their personal items and return to their permanent address. Exceptions to remain in campus housing will be made for truly unique circumstances.

Upon arrival to campus, we ask you to park in a residential parking lot rather than the campus roads next to your building. Once you are fully packed and ready to move out, please move your car to a location close to your building to load your belongings. This will be especially important for Fenwick Place, Brockman Hall, and Kuhlman Hall due to traffic patterns around exits to the buildings. To facilitate an efficient process you will not need to complete a thorough check out process. As you remove the last of your belongings, log back in to Housing Self Service at your checkout time to complete your checkout. Further instructions can be found here.

Village Apartments, 1019 Dana and Dana House Residents only: Further instructions on where to drop off your physical key will be sent by your Apartment Director.
