Fall End of Semester Instructions
Residence Halls Closing: All Cumberland University Residence Halls will close at 12 pm on the Friday of finals week. Students will begin to receive emails about closing in November.
The Office of Residence Life will follow the policy outlined in the Cumberland University Catalog, regarding any exceptions. Break Agreements will be limited to those outlined in the policy as well. Travel arrangements should be made well in advance to avoid any conflicts. Anyone found in violation will be asked to leave and/or be escorted off campus. All residents are required to turn in all of their residence hall keys. Failure to do so will result in a $50 fine. An envelope will be provided to you just prior to the start of finals.
Students who wish to apply to remain on campus during break, cancel your housing for spring, or submit a room change request can find the links in the Phoenix News.
While you are not required to remove all your items from your room, be sure to take any personal items with you that you will need over the break period.
You may not enter the Halls for any reason after you have checked out. Residence Life Staff will perform Health & Safety Inspections over the break, beginning Thursday evening, or once everyone has vacated their room or suite.
Spring End of Semester Instructions
All Cumberland University Residence Halls will close at 12 PM on the Friday of finals week for non-graduating students. Halls will close at 5 PM on the Saturday of graduation for all non-summer students. Anyone found in violation will be asked to leave and/or escorted off campus.
