All residence halls open and close according to the College’s master calendar and students are expected to make their travel plans accordingly. (Please see Registrar’s Office – Academic Calendars www.haverford.edu/registrar/calendars.php).
Each semester, the residence halls officially open for returning students two days before the first day of classes. For Semester I, only, First-Year residence halls officially open the Wednesday before classes begin for the start of the Customs program. Please refer to the Residential Life Calendar www.haverford.edu/reslife/calendar.php for more information, details and updates.
Residence Halls remain open during the Fall, Thanksgiving and Spring Breaks, but the Dining Center is closed and no food service is provided. Residence Halls close for the Winter Break at 12:00pm (noon) on the Saturday immediately following the official end of Semester I, and all residents must leave by this time. Any student who believes they have a legitimate need for special accommodation, after this deadline, must contact the Office of Residential Life, as soon as possible. Students will not be permitted to stay overnight in their room but will be housed in Winter Break housing as space permits. The residence halls remain closed and locked for the winter break. Requests to retrieve any belongings from the residence halls during this time must be made to the Office of Residential Life. If permission is given, the student must make contact with Campus Safety to arrange for a mutually convenient time to be let in to the residence hall and for Campus Safety to lock up and re-secure the building. There may be a charge for this service.
The residence halls close at the end of Semester II at 6:00pm on Commencement Day and all residents must be moved out and leave by this time.
Any student found to be in violation of the published arrival dates or move out deadlines will be required to leave campus immediately and will be fined.
