A SHA, or Summer Housing Assistant, is a very important part of Residence Life during the summer months. There are eight SHA’s on staff at a time and they are very similar to Resident Assistants in the roles they serve in their buildings. SHA’s work with summer guests, (commonly known as Snow Birds), summer students and those participating in overnight camps as well by monitoring check-ins and check-outs and spending time on call and on duty. SHA’s also help with working at the front desk of the Community Center and assist with sorting mail too. This year’s SHA’s are: Juan Sebastian, Angela, Robert, Tierney, Veronica, Stephanee, Elizabeth, and Rosa. Thanks in advance for all the work you will be doing! If you want to know more about each of our SHA’s, look for the SHA spotlight blogs throughout the summer.
As you enjoy your summer, be sure to keep checking our blogs! Some of the exciting things to look for this summer will be the May OTM blog, the weekly SHA Spotlight blogs, and blogs targeted to freshman/new-to-housing students. Some of those blogs will include a list of commonly used abbreviations, what each building is refereed to by returning housing students and what to expect on move in day. There will also be a video blog on what to bring and what not to bring to housing where viewers will be taken on a virtual tour of a residence hall room. We at Residence Life hope you have a great summer and we hope these blogs can help you get and stay connected to Residence Life through the summer months.
Your Housing Contract Ends at Saturday, May 18 at 5:30 pm
Students are encouraged to vacate their room or apartment within 24 hours of their last final exam and must leave no later than Saturday, May 18 at 5:30 pm unless arrangements for summer housing or an extended stay have been made. You must clean, remove your belongings, and vacate your apartment or residence hall room by this time.
All students must complete the online Express Check-Out Process when moving out. A walk-up computer are available kiosk is available in the Community Center, if you need a computer. Failure to check out online will result in a $50 improper check-out charge. Please do not check out until you are ready to leave, door access will terminate upon check-out.
In order to avoid cleaning charges, make sure to clean your room/apartment thoroughly. We strongly recommend discussing cleaning responsibilities with your roommate(s) using this form. Additional cleaning information including this cleaning checklist and oven cleaning instructions are available to you as well.
Students do not need to change the current configuration of their beds (bunked, junior lofted, etc.), however beds must be properly assembled, and all furniture provided must be in the room upon check-out to avoid damage charges.
Submit Your Maintenance Requests Now
If you are aware of items in need of repair in your room or apartment, please submit an online maintenance request for these items now. Your room/apartment will be inspected after you move out and you will be charged for any damages, missing items and/or cleaning. Normal wear and tear will not result in a charge.
As you know, your classmates expect an atmosphere conducive to sleep and study, especially during this time of the year. Silent hours will be posted in your buildings and Resident Assistants are expected to be particularly sensitive to noise levels. Violations of University and Housing policy will result in judicial action which may include your immediate eviction, cancellation of your housing contract and/or referral of your case to the Dean of Students Office.

What does my priority number mean and how is my priority number determined?
Your priority number reflects the order in which you will be served to provide quality service and minimize long lines and waiting. It is determined by: a) your number of semesters in housing, b) your academic credits earned, and c) a random number system.
Is there a way to know what number is currently being served?
For your convenience you may check the priority numbers being served on your assignment day (April 17, 18 or 19) online.
Do all roommates need to be present at Room Selection?
For your convenience, only one person in a group of roommates needs to bring the groups’ Room Selcection Tickets when requesting your room preference. However, if your room preference is unavailable at the time of room signup, it’s important for you to know your roommates’ alternate room preferences or have them present for discussion and decision making purposes.
What are my housing options?
During your assignment time you will be given the opportunity to request your preferred housing type, space permitting. Housing types include: a) 11 residence halls; b) 9 apartment buildings with shared bedrooms (3312 through 3334); and c) 6 apartment buildings with private bedrooms (Harden, Robishaw, Thompson, Liebl, Haevers, and Pamperin halls). To view floor plans, click here.
What if I don’t have a roommate preference?
To consolidate spaces, individual students selecting apartment spaces without preferred roommates will be assigned to an already partially occupied apartment.
