Residence Life Information for Parents

Care Packages

Are you looking to send your student a care package? Choose from a designed package or build a custom one to send your student encouragement during the academic year.

Summer Storage

The University does not have a recommended provider for summer storage options nor are we affiliated with any outside storage companies or pick-up/delivery services.  Students are encouraged to work with a local provider of their choosing for any desired services.  Please note the University will not provide any access to residential spaces for such vendors so student will need to coordinate appropriate details.  Students may have more success finding local storage in the area and then retrieving their items when they come back to campus.


Renters Insurance

The University does not assume responsibility for theft, loss, or damage to resident's personal property and the student hereby releases the University from any liability. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that each individual obtain insurance coverage for all items of personal property kept at the residence. This is point #10 in the Housing Agreement signed by all students.
